After giving it a lot of thought, here's the Jolly Almanac of Card Knavery, a 240ish page PDF for learning card magic, available for free.

Inside are 12 chapters of material, including dozens of techniques, over 70 tricks, and essays about magic theory.

I'm distributing it under a creative commons license (more details within the PDF itself in the book's Introduction). There are some relevant terms in there involving how to share this with others, but otherwise, if you want to download the PDF and start learning, it's available for free.

Hope you guys have had a good weekend!

Thank you Andrew!

I've just downloaded it.
It'll take some time to read ...

Well guys, we may have another source to choose if we want to start the wonderful journey into card magic!

I haven't read through all of it. (I'm not a card guy.) But it looks great. The interludes will be helpful for all beginning magicians.
