First Edition 1981

With CARDWORKS, Richard Kaufman returns to the same innovative area that made his CARD MAGIC a bestseller in 1979.
Clearly written and beautifully illustrated, CARDWORKS contains many wonderful routines that you’ll find as enjoyable to perform as the audience will to watch.
While most of the material has been created by the author, there are contributions from the top names in closeup:

  • From ED MARLO: Banded: That’s Impossible!
    Four seemingly impossible effects involving rubber-band surrounded decks.
  • From DEREK DINGLE: DazzleShop Aces
    An Ace assembly specifically designed to astound other magicians.
  • From JON RACHERBAUMER: Purist Sandwich
    one of the swiftest and most puzzling sandwiches in town.
    To Red-Eye Special, Instant No-Shuffle Sandwich, One-Hand Mechanical Aces, and Ethereal Blackjack 7 and 2.
  • From HOWARD SCHWARZMAN: The Original Card Tunnels [with Ken Krenzel)
    The never-before-published classics that started the tunnel craze.
  • From DARWIN ORTIZ and PAT COOK: Stapled Black
    The ultimate handling of the Paul Harris plot; two cards magically transpose through a metal staple.
  • From JIM SWAIN: Passing Along the Vanishing Aces
    A classic which has already gained a great reputation within the Inner Circle.
All this and more is in CARDWORKS.
Richard Kaufman’s unique perspective as both author and illustrator gives him the ability to teach sleight of hand more clearly than almost anyone else!
You can practically see the sleights being performed for you by just glancing at the many illustrations in CARDWORKS.
