What objects do you want to manipulate? Cards, coins, balls, thimbles, silks?

Artist System by Lukas doesn't teach you any manipulation, it teaches/shows you gimmicks for stage magic. There is no DVD that teaches you ''everything'' in manipulation.

So my next question to you is, what DVDs/books you have that teach manipulation and are you looking for beginner, intermediate or professional material?

RJH, you forget about the Jeff McBride series. You have to walk before you can fly, so learn the basics 1st, and educate yourself.

If you are a beginner, and it sounds like you are, then:

For cards you need the "Art of Card Manipulation" 3 volume set.
http://www.yourmagic.com/catalog/product......ts_id=47

For Billiard Balls, Thimbles, Coins you will need "World Class Manipulation" 3 volume set.
http://www.yourmagic.com/catalog/product......ts_id=87

This does not cover cigarettes or doves.

With these sets you will have all the basics and advanced instructions to then go on to the more difficult manipulations that the Asian magicians are selling DVDs on other methods.

Then you will benefit greatly from Jeff McBride's "Magic on Stage" 3 volume set of classic stage magic and more prop manipulation and how to present it to an audience.

There are also books available on manipulations as well.

Levent's DVDs on the billiard balls, linking rings, and his own award-winning stage act are great resources. However, I would second Bill's recommendation to investigate material in print (e.g. books and lecture notes ) as well. There are some great routines and ideas in books and lectures that haven't been covered yet in instructional videos. Sometimes you will find great manipulation ideas hidden in books that aren't devoted exclusively to manipulation, such as Bruce Elliott's books like the Interlocked Coin Routine in _Professional Magic Made Easy_. But the best print resource might be Lewis Ganson's books in the _Routine Manipulations_ series as well as his Teach-In series.

If you can track down some of Lou Lancaster's instructional videos, they would probably be of use also. I think the International Magic Society has some of Lou'smaterial. IIRC, Lou was an influence on Jeff McBride's development in magic.

Then there's Geoffrey Buckingham's videos which I think are currently available from L&L Publishing.

If you belong to an IBM Ring or SAM assembly or even an independent magic club, you might be able to find a mentor who knows manipulation routines who can help you as well. Some of the most outstanding manipulation artists of all time were mentored by others--not just in sleights, routines etc, but in showmanship and presentation as well, which is of as much importance in learning as the sleights themselves.

If you are just getting started, McBrides "Manipulation without Tears" is also very good.

King Coffee, is very poor instructions, it only shows 2 ball moves, the rest is props like canes and silks. It is only good after you get the basic instruction as mentioned above by others. King Coffee also good for how to handle props.

I agree that Geoffrey Buckingham's DVD is great for getting insights of his act. Which includes slight, preparation and more.
Meanwhile I feel it's too specific to his act, which might not be the best source for a beginner in manipulation.

For ball manipulation, I recommend Levent's set of tutorial.
If you are looking for general stuff, then McBride is probably a better choice.
You may consider other items as well, such as CD, parasol, (oriental) fan etc.

Personally I am a ball manipulator Smile
