“Slick. Cool. Superb on all levels. Beyond the exceptional caliber of the effects is John’s brilliant thinking behind it all.” -John Guastaferro

“This great mix of material and methods shows how Bannon continues to think outside the card box. Once again Bannon triumphs!” -Raj Madhok

John Bannon’s highly-engineered, yet easy-to-do brand of magic shines in this retrospective.

Over forty complete routines are described in Bannon’s easy-going readable style. Here are the tricks and the clever, innovative thinking behind them. Collected from Bannon’s publications over the ten years since his internationally best-selling Dear Mister Fantasy, you’ll find an impressive variety as well:

Sophisticated “fractal” packet tricks

Contemporary gambling demonstrations

Ultramodern Ace assemblies

Unorthodox “garden path” tricks

Unconventional transpositions

Refined mental mysteries

Yet, notwithstanding this extraordinary breadth, no gaffs are employed and no difficult moves are required. Virtually all of the routines use regular cards, most are impromptu, and quite a few are self-working. Typical of Bannon’s work, each layered construction has been polished until the trick has a point, a purpose, and a place in the magical firmament.
