Volume two (the first one was Revolutionary Card Technique) of Magic Inc.'s Marlo triology.
Cardially Yours is an anthology of card magic like no other.

Detailed Description
Between these covers you'll encounter classic works of legendary Chicago card magician, Edward Marlo including:


Early Marlo

Pasteboard Presto

Amazing, Isn't It?

Marlo's Discoveries

Oddity & Other Miracles

Let's See the Deck

Off the Top

Marlo in Spades

The Cardician



These seminal texts embody some of Marlo's finest and most influential creations. From self-working miracles requiring no sleight-of-hand, to knuckle-busting sleights, shuffles, moves and flourishes, Cardially Yours contains a potpourri of prestidigitation with Marlo�s first love—playing cards. Magician-foolers share the pages with audience-tested, reputation-making tricks. Edited and photographed by Gabe Fajuri, with introduction by two of Marlo's most prolific students: Simon Aronson and David Solomon.



"Can you imagine what it must have been like, to be sitting at Ed's table, and be dumbfounded as Ed produced a signed card from the tabled card case? I envy you to whom some of this material is truly new. Because here you don't have to choose between what's new or what's good. In this volume, you get it all." —Simon Aronson



"This book dramatically and entertainingly reveals why Marlo was always 'ahead of his time,' providing strong card magic that ultimately proved to be timeless, applicable to all times, for all magicians." —Jon Racherbaumer



"This anthology is jammed with great magic. If this is your first time reading the material, consider me jealous of the discoveries you are about to make. But, pay attention to the details. Ed Marlo did, and with them fooled the world. Studying and adding his kind of clever thinking and subtleties to your work will let you fool it too.' —David Solomon



Cardially Yours is a collection of Edward Marlo's influential works on card magic. Made up of over one dozen important publications, it includes his reputation-making work, The Cardician. Composed of the sleights, moves, tricks, routines and flourishes that made Ed Marlo's reputation as a cardician par excellence, the miracle material in these pages is at once ageless, challenging and innovative.

Price is $59.95

Ask the people at Magic, Inc. They should know.

I think that Magic INc.is republishing in book form all the booklets that Marlo put out through them. There are a few still left for them to put in the third book like Deck Deception, Classical Foursome, Future Reverse, Shoot the Work, Magic Seven, Havana Deal and many others.

Has anyone spotted there are quite a few errors in the book? Eg I'm pretty sure photo 1 is wrong as is 2 3 4 10 21. 10 on p120 doesn't show points A and B. Text too; eg p26 "at this point the card he had."
Its a pity the material isn't given justice.

El Mystico, I'm surprised no one got back to you. I just bought the book yesterday, having plowed through a good chunk of Revolutionary Card Technique. The first edition of THAT book was a real horror, apparently. The edition I have is great so far. Some typo's, but all the figures seems great. Maybe others have found some errors.

Are you thinking that the photos 1, 2, 3, and 4 are wrong because the crimp runs along the long axis of the cards instead of the short one? In the original manuscript, the drawings are only 2 dimensional, so I can't tell those how its supposed to be. But that was Gabe Fujari and David Solomon putting those together, so I tend to think they got it right.

Do you have any advice on how to read, workshop, practice, select material from either of the 2 books? I've basically been reading RCT straight through and have worked with everything through the Faro section. Just started Cardially Yours today.

Best!

Here are a couple of reasons I think the photos are wrong.
Firstly, to get the crimp in, Marlo tells you to spring the cards. Typically this is done holding the cards at the long ends, which would result in the crimp running along the short axis.
If Marlo had meant you to spring the cards in an unusual way, I think he would have said so.
Also, in Marlo's Rossini, the crimp is gained by the spectator peeking a card "with the deck held rather low". This would also result in a crimp along the short axis.

Advice on how to use the books? I'm several years late! But, clearly the main advice is to read the text carefully and not rely too much on the photos.
Apart from that, I found it helpful to treat the chapters as they were originally intended; separate books. Red and experiment with the material in each before moving on to the next.
