Creating the Impossible by Chris Wardle and James Ward - Book



Chris Wardle and James Ward are both award-winning members of The Magic Circle, with a long list of credits devising magic for books, magazines, television, radio and the stage.

Here they share their simple and practical methodologies, whilst using examples of their own creations to illustrate their points. Inside you will explore workable, practical ways to devise your own magic and methods for making effects "your own" so as to be able to offer something unique to your audiences.

Included are a brand new take on "The Jigsaw Card" and a Date Prediction with a kicker finish by Chris, and an ingenious name-matching idea and a memory-cheating effect, "Eye Witness", from James, to name but a few.

This book will inspire you and set you on the right path for Creating the Impossible.

"Both Chris and James have the ability to take simple ideas and, by the addition of layers of subtlety and ingeniously-devised presentations, build them into entertaining mysteries, many of which have found their way into the repertoires of leading professional magicians. This is because they instinctively understand what appeals to the public."
