Hey guys I would really like to learn a couple crazy flourishes but all I can find on line is videos. My computer is super slow and I'd like to find a website that is more picture or text based that teaches flourishes. I'm even willing to go get a book. Are there any websites like that out there?

I'm not so sure about any websites. Books? DEFINITELY buy The Encyclopedia of Playing Card Flourishes. It's a little expensive but well worth every penny. A quick search will tell you everything you need to know about it....

All the Best,
Andrew

Hi goatears, what type of flourishes are you looking to learn? Just a few to add during your magic effects (like fancy cuts, springing the cards, etc.), or are you wanting to string a routine of flourishes together in a card manipulation routine? The Encyclopedia of Playing Card Flourishes is a great book, but there are a lot of alternatives out there that are not as expensive if you are just looking to add a few flourishes to your repertoire.

I use to have a lot of different websites with flourishes on them, but I'm not sure if they were only video based or not, I'll look into them and see if I can find them from my old computer.

That's a very good point. If you're looking for some less expensive alternatives that'll teach you a few things to spice up your repertoire (basic one handed cuts, fans, etc.), there's some cheaper classic magic books that'll suffice just fine. My suggestion was under the assumption that you were looking for the most comprehensive book on XCM.

I consider my self somewhat well versed. I can do a solid syibil, hot shot triple cut, revelution. On top of that split fans and back palms are second nature. I guess I'm looking for sybil variations and arial moves, just to keep my fingures nimble.
