Hi Guys,

Just taken delivery of 9 magic books all covering coin magic, obviously lots to cover and I wondered what peoples favourite routines were:-

Bobo's - New modern Coin magic (only just realised I didn't have the newer version)
Shigeo Futagawa - Introduction to Coin Magic
Derek Dingle - Complete Works
Bobby Bernard - Bernards Lesson on Coin Magic
Scotty York - Coins - Lecture notes
Michael Rubinstein - Intermediate and Advanced coin technique
Coining Magic - Ed Marlo
Misers Miracle - Jerry Andrus
Unexpected Visitor - Doug Brewer

I shall look forward to your thoughts. Just to let you know I will be reading my way through all of them, just wanted to see what gems await me ;-D

First, all material has to be custom cut and polished to suit the performer. Lots of stuff to sort through there. Most of it derivitive of older works, such as:

Modern Coin Manipulation
Art of Magic
Greater Magic
The Robert-Houdin book Secrets of Conjuring...
The Ramsay Legend
The Magic of Ross Bertram
The Stars of Magic
Expert Coin Magic
The Art of Close Up Magic vols 1,2

Happy hunting and best of reading all the coins I've dropped here

Since we're on the subject of not to miss books with great coin magic...and this could possibly be one of the most under rated books out there...Kort, The Magic of Milt Kort published by Stephen Minch...the book is not all coins...but there is a large portion in there and it has some really great coin magic (along with cards, dice, balls, razor blades, and an elephant!). The Rumsey (not Ramsay)vanish and the vanishing elephant is worth many times the price of the book!
