Now that the CardShark is reprinted, I request Mr. Ortiz to publish "At The Card Table" book again.

Please cast your vote if you are interested in a reprint.

Thanks!

I'm confused, you want people to read books, but you don't want books to be available for them?

Unless this is a joke that I don't understand

Johnstu,
I totally agree with magicfish for a very simple reason, that it might be completely different from his reasons: this type of card magic is very,very, very old.
Have you seen recently some video of Mr. Ortiz ? Have you notice how tense are the body, the hands and the performance ? I hardly believe that the Spanish school has closed this type of magic in the past and a new way of doing miracles is alive: none will tell to Tamariz or DaOrtiz how goods are playing with cards and do their stuff quickly, because their approach is completely different and, sincerely, more difficult to do but more magical.
These are the new masters to study, so the old book can stay where it is, because it has already given to us what he could give.
My two cents.

While it is old, there are still gems in the oldies. It has nothing to do with performance style but more about the content. Many of the old manuscripts fry today's audience. The Spanish school of thought is great but it is not the only school. There are other equally effective schools that come from a different philosophy and Darwin Ortiz's material is solid! Just look at Cardshark which was recently become available again. It contains some of the strongest card magic there is. Adapt the content to your personality and all will be new again Smile.

Now back to the request!! "At the Card Table" please... Smile

Hi Diego,
I do agree that the Spanish school is producing some great magic, and that magicians like Juan Tamariz, Dani DaOrtiz, Woody Aragon etc are fantastic in both their construction and approach to magic

But I think it would be a big mistake to use the excellence of Tamariz et al to write off anything else, especially just on the basis of being “old”. If you don’t like Darwin’s performance style that’s your opinion and I have no business in trying to talk you out of that, but his tricks are solid and well thought out. You get insight into that thinking by reading his books and you are perfectly welcome, in fact I’m sure Darwin would actively encourage you, to adapt those tricks to your own performance style.

This is not at all why I object to the reprint. The magic contained within is some of the best material ever published.

You can still use the material and not perform like Ortiz. What a silly critique of this excellent book.

The material is excellent and I'd prefer that every interested magician (especially young ones) have access to it at an affordable price and reasonable attainability. I was lucky enough to purchase Scams & Fantasies at an impressionable age and stage of development in magic and it was formative. I want others to have that same opportunity.

I've actually already got a copy, but if it were to be reprinted, I think I'd buy another one. Firstly for the signature. I've already got Cardshark and Lessons in Card Mastery autographed so it'd be nice to add At the Card Table to the list. Also, Darwin said in the Cardshark thread that after that short run ran out, he has no plans to ever reprint it again. I would think that the same thing would be applied to this book. In which case, I could probably end up selling my first copy for way more than I bought it for in a few years
