Has Giobbi brought out any other books than Card College? I've searched the internet multiple times, without succes. Could you also give a short description of the book, please.

(Oh yea, I'm not looking for lecture notes)

Thanks a lot.

Hi there

I'm not sure if this is what you're after, but Giobbi contributed to "Concertos for Pasteboard". It's $35. This from L&L Publishing's website:

"Innovative material from Roberto Giobbi, Pit Hartling, Magic Christian, Wittus Witt, Piet Forton and many more! Concertos for Pasteboard features a remarkable breadth of material for today's card magicians. The tricks, which are helpfully classified by skill level, range from nearly sleightless to technically demanding, and their potential to surprise and amaze is consistently high. In total, this substantial volume contains enough variety, quality, entertainment and ingenuity to please the most experienced readers and performers of card magic. A total of 29 creations from the German and Swiss masters. 246 pages, hard cover, fully illustrated."

Hope this helps.

There is a booklet from 1984 called "The Cardmanship of Roberto Giobbi" edited by Walt Lees with several routines and an in depth study of the riffle force.

Giobbi has also written several books in german. "Fantasia in As-dur", "Traum eines Falschspielers" and "Card Stories" are booklets with routines. His first Major Book was "Card Perfect". Most of this material found its way into Card College. Then there is a series of three books about selfworking card magic called "Roberto Light", "Roberto Extra Light" and "Roberto Super Light".

I have a booklet by Giobbi, whose title is "Il sogno del baro" ( The cheater's dream ), featuring a routine about cheaters' skills in poker, blackjack, bridge. I ignore whether there's an english translation, unfortunately.

"Traum eines Falschspielers" means "A Gambler dreams". I believe, this has also been published in english. But as far as I know, none of the other german books were translated.

Yes, Uli, I didn't read that title in your message : surely must be the same booklet.
If so, there's an english translation.

Stephen Minch told me that the Roberto Light trilogy is now being translated into English and will be published by Hermetic Press. This is an excellent series of books focusing on professional-strength effects and full routines that are either easy to perform or self-working. No knucklebusting (fingerfertigkeit to you, Uli!). The first volume, Roberto Light, should be out by the end of the year.

If you like Roberto's Card College, then save some money to buy the Light-Series. You can expect the same high quality and attention to detail as in Card College. This is the finest collection of selfworking card magic I know (and I know many). You don't even need a false cut to perform the tricks. In most cases the underlying principles are very well hidden by intelligent construction and presentation.

While not a book, if you enjoy his work you should definately look into his video taped at the British magic symposium. I'm sure any decent magic dealer can get it. Includes some great work on card in wallet and his Benson Bowl routine.
