Hi everyone! I'm just starting to get interested in this field and have been reading some of the posts for beginners. I would like to do a lot of card magic, but I'm going to get Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic to keep my options open.

I have a little concern though, I have very tiny hands (just about big enough to cover a deck of cards plus an inch), will that be a problem if I go into card magic?

Hi, Schauby, welcome to the Café! Wilson's book is a great start, and it has quite a bit of card magic. You may also want to check out [i]Royal Road to Card Magic[/i]. And if you want to get a little more expensive (but worth it), you may like the [i]Card College[/i] series.
I assume by your question about hand size, you're worried about palming cards? Hand size isn't nearly as important as technique, but you may want to check out Bridge-size cards if you haven't already. Bridge-size cards are smaller than Poker-size (Bicycle) cards.

Have fun! :wavey:

Hi there Shauby,

Welcome to the Magic Café. I think you’ll have a lot of fun in here. The topic boards and the members are real interesting and helpful. It covers just about any interest in the art and even the sideline interests.

Have fun

Welcome Shauby.You could always use bridge sized cards instead of poker size.

Phew, *wicks sweat off of forehead*. I really love card tricks and I was afraid that would become a problem, thanks for the info.

Welcome to the café. A bridge deck works better than hanging weights from your fingers to stretch.
Good Luck.
