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
High Caliber covers the magical waterfront with a fresh, original view.
Yet not with standing 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.
