The eight routines in CAAN Craft-clearly described by Mr. Hartman and ably illustrated by Tony Dunn-are already being hailed as a bravura display of creativity, and the many new moves, maneuvers, and strategies revealed in its pages will undoubtedly inspire myriad variations. Each entry adheres strictly to the condition that a card is merely named rather than physically selected, and none requires advanced sleight of hand or special decks.
"I have always found Hartman's material to be interesting and thought-provoking, and I am pleased to say that in CAAN Craft he maintains his usual high standard, offering some quirky and devious ways to place a card, or cards, at any number. If you are a card worker, you should have it on your bookshelf."
- Peter Duffie, MAGIC (Lead review, 11/10)
In addition, CAAN KICKER, one of the strongest of the routines, features a novel silk-screened card that accompanies the book.
These are not keyboard pipedreams. Each boasts a complete, effective script and each has been fully tested before lay audiences in both casual and formal performances, leaving every nuance polished to a high gleam.
