I just had the opportunity to see the finished copy of Redford's new book Hexagon. It is stunning. So, I wanted to tell you a little bit about it and why I'm sad he is releasing some of the material.

In my shows, I try my best to only include one card routine. Since I was originally a card magician, I seem to struggle to find quality material for stage and walk-around that isn't cards. I'm pleased to say that I've found multiple routines in Hexagon that allow me to achieve the same effects with cards, but with different objects.

I have been performing Time Turner as my opener for about a year, and he recently updated it with a new way to start the effect. It is basically b'wave with markers. He holds only one marker in his hand, but has the audience imagine that there are four different colored markers in his hand. The audience eliminates three markers leaving him with say the Green marker. He opens his hand, and he has been holding the green marker the entire time. That marker can then be used for the remainder of the show which is a constant reminder of what took place earlier in the show.

He has a version of Tossed Out Deck with watches. This routine requires no set up and the watch can be borrowed. This once again is another great way to remove cards from your act.

Instead of pick a card, he has a pick a photo. He asks a person to scroll through the pictures on their phone and to stop at any one. Redford is able to describe the person's photo in detail.

Anyways, those are just three of the effects that I have been performing since reading his book and attending his lectures. I suggest checking it out. He is a nice guy, so I'm sure he'd be happy to answer any of your questions. Or PM me if you have any questions about the practicality of his routines. The book is available for pre-order here http://www.patrickredford.com.

I admit to being excited for this release. I have held a very high opinion of Patrick for some time and I don't think I have ever read anything of his that didn't get me thinking.

Wow, thanks for that (Both of you); very kind.

I'm pretty excited about this release. I'll have a bunch at the upcoming Mindvention. Just got notice that they'll be on my door step by Wednesday of this coming week!

This is some of my very favorite material. I'm looking forward to the community response.

So, if I understood correctly the review, if you're a card magician and don't want to put too much card trick in his show it's a must have! Smile
But if I'm not? lol

I was hanging out with Patrick, Dan Fishman and Dan Huffman (Wee Man) last night after the Harry Anderson lecture, a few of the pieces from Hexagon were demonstrated...all I can say is awesome...plus to top it all off, he used MY watch for everything and still blew me away!

Just got this...wow. I know this is just another post that will surely be lost in a sea of positive posts. But I just want to drop a line and say this is good stuff!! I don’t think I have ever bought anything from PR that I have event felt a second thought on. I carry his stuff every place. One of his routines in heptagon even got me out of a ticket!!!!

Keep up the good work Mr.Redford

Patrick Redford is an amazing performer...and a diabolical thinker! He will pull the rug out from under you. I can't wait to get his newest work.

I have all his manuscripts to-date, and I've never been disappointed by the routines he publishes. Why? Because they are routines he works, reworks, and then actually peforms. That's honest value for our hard-earned money.

Takeachance. It is on my website. Simply go take a visit and hit Products. You'll find it. You can also navigate to it by clicking the shape series banner found on the main page.

This was a total sell out at Mindvention. I am now down to the last small batch from the first printing.

I have it on good authority that Col and myself may make an appearance in this? Might this be true?

I may be taking another batch of pre-orders soon. As these do tend to fly this might be the way to go.

I'll keep everyone posted via my usual channels.
