I'm fascinated by playing cards. For most of us, they are the main tool of our trade as magicians. I'm also fascinated by their history, and how they evolved to become what they are today.

Here's magician DMC, with a great video presentation entitled Playing Cards: A Secret History.



This can give some great ideas for presentational approaches to card tricks (e.g. for a ripped-and-restored routine you could use the story about mothers using playing cards to identify children they gave up as orphans).

Hope others enjoy this video as much as I did!
