Magic With Finger Rings by Jerry Mentzer - Book

Magic With Finger Rings

Regular price $25.00

A collection of incredible close-up effects with borrowed finger rings! Some in conjunction with the performer's own ring or other props. All are stunners! There is not a "pipe dream" or "strictly theoretical" item among them. Every effect has been performed many, many times. With this fine collection of effects at your disposal, you can select one or several of them and perform magic that people will remember!

Magic with borrowed rings has special audience appeal because finger rings are important and valuable. They are extremely personal items. People show pride in themselves as well as love and affection toward others by the visible symbol of a finger-ring. Old-time stage magicians new the entertainment value of borrowing a ring, destroying it, and later producing it unharmed from inside a nest of boxes, an egg, or a walnut shell. Today's close-up performer can create similar audience interest by using that very "personal" item--a borrowed finger ring!

Over twenty-five effects are described in this large size, typeset book, line drawing illustrations accompany the text to clarify key points. Every reader should be able to find something of interest.
