:) If I was going to beg the question with some sort of circular reasoning then surely I would have said so, I am sure that you trust me at least that much...therefore your argument is without merit. Irregardless ad infinitum.

Halb zog sie ihn, halb sank er hin.

I don't even know what I am saying anymore. You brought me here with your cruel charges...

Still, I hope you like the book. Thanks!

If this post interests you, then I challenge you to seek out the blind with some of these effects !!!
Call your local association for the blind and offer your services.
That's what I'm going to do.

There is a condition worse than blindness, and that is, seeing something that isn't there.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

By coincidence, there are a few new posts in the "New to Magic" section, specifically dealing with this topic!!! Lynn

Sometime last year I came across an effect that a magician had designed for a deaf person that he knew as a gift. It involved aroma/taste and touch, and at the time I thought it was really clever and interesting. I don't recall the name, but if anyone's interested they can PM me and I'll search for it on the backup I made of my old hard drive.

I have looked at tons of tricks and picked a dozen or so that I can do in the hands and/or minds of a blind person.
My problem now is how to convert these basic tricks from a ta-da moment, into a magical event for a blind person. How many tricks to perform? In what order? Do I write a script verbatim or just an outline and ad lib? I have never done this & I need help.
I need the help of a teacher to help me routine and script it.

If this interests you or if you know someone please Email me at edshern@gmail.com. Would you charge by the hour or set price for the project.

THANK YOU,
Ed Shernoff

I believe it was at Magic Live in Las Vegas (2011) that a complete show was devoted to Blind Magic.
Can any body help me out with what those tricks were and/or some detail about them? I wish to perform for a blind friend.

Hey y'all, I know this is a pretty old thread and that the topic has come up a few times over the years. I have enjoyed reading all of these responses. This is the list of tricks I would suggest:

There is a routine by Pen and Teller, where the participant is "blinded" and they use some linking rings to make the illusion (to the participant) that the ring passes trhu their arm, for example.

Is on youtube, I imagine that it would work with someone blind.

I think that bit is for the audience. They deceive a blindfolded victim by doing things only the audience sees.

I created a one-way punch deck, which I explained on secret sessions. I taught a blind child how to use it. The kids at his blind school were amazing. For example, the blind kids played football, you know soccer, with a bell inside it.

I think it would be problematic. It would look like you were picking on the blind person, making a fool of him. He will not be able to open his eyes and "see" the end result. This routine is based on the spectator's preconceptions gained from when his eyes are open.

Sponge balls are also difficult. Blind people will not see the moves that lead up to putting the balls in his hand, so he/she will want to check. They don't want to be "shortchanged."
