The name, Chris Congreave, is synonymous with commercial close-up routines and ideas. As a full time, close-up pro for over a decade, he has learned how to hone his magic in order to make it totally practical for performance to lay people in the real world. This new book brings together a collection of 40 of his best ideas, as well as providing you with three essays that offer sage advice.
Although a few of his routines do require some elements of sleight of hand, much of his material is extremely straightforward or even virtually self-working. In fact, the variety and breadth of the material makes it ideal both for those just starting out and also for those with more technical ability and knowledge.
When a full-time pro elects to share his worker routines with the wider magical public, it pays to sit up and take notice. This excellent collection of close-up magic is a combination of some previously published and released material, as well as items that are being revealed for the first time. This amazing book should be in the hands of every discerning performer who aspires to present commercial close-up magic.
