Can someone help me finding books/dvdís/sites about sleights/tricks to do with (lighten) cigarettes??


I mean things where you do not need to use an extra, "something".

Two words.

Tom Mullica.

36 more words (including fag twice).

He is the cigarette king (I guess that would be "fag king" for all our British friends). He has a 3 volume video series totally devoted to fag magic (something completely different here in the States!!).

Note: (fag) [i]slang[/i] British - A cigarette.

Keith Clark's book on cigarette manipulation is probably out of print now.

And it is somewhat dated, being written more than 50 years ago.

But it is still the bible of cigarette work.

Most larger magic dealers should be able to get a copy for you.

It is called, I believe, Keith Clark's Cigarette Manipulations.

Clark's Encyclopedia of Cigarette Magic is still being published, by D Robbins, and is (quite inexpensively) available from most dealers.

Right, Scott -- I couldn't think of the name of the book at the time.

Keith Clark can be looked on as the Bobo of cigarettes.

Tarbell is full of Cig magic, more so in Vol. 2, I believe.


Thank you,

Fearsons floating cigarette will take you a lot of practice and a lot of setting up, and uses a gimick,

However, It is a VERY powerful trick.

I would highly recommend practicing it, as it just blows people away!

I learned a few good cig sleights from Bill Tarr's book. Check out a small section of Henry Hay's Amateur Magician Handbook, which also has a few stories about Cardini and others.

There is also a second "Now you see it, now you don't" by Bill Tarr with more cigarette magic in it.
