I'll start with the three that any coin magician should have on their shelves.

Modern Coin Magic - Bobo
Coin Magic - Kaufman
Expert Coin Magic - David Roth

The Bobo & Roth books have sections on coin box magic. The Roth book is the better for Okito routines as there is a whole section devoted to it.

Howdy:

The Roth books are VERY advanced. If you get Bobo's make sure to get the NEWEST edition as the Dover reprint is missing about 1/3 of the best material.

Shageo Futagawa has some lecture notes from years ago that had killer stuff on the Boston box. You might try H & R books in TX to see if they have any, etc.

Best,

I would recommend the David Stone videos.
He starts from the very beginning (although advances very fast) but his routines are really great.

Dan always has the right answers Smile

But back to the topic...
As the others have said get Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, it is a great book that has everything you will need for a while.

Bobo's IS definatly a must for the book shelf.

Kaufman's book may be better than Roth's purley for the reason that it contains a lot of different "styles" by different magicians.
and would be better suited to you as a beginner, after completing Bobo's of course.

(Dont get me wrong here ALL are great books)

I also prefer Coin Magic to the Roth book but Dirt Biker asked for Okito routines. Unfortunately, Coin Magic doesn't have any Okito stuff, it's all in the Roth book. What the heck, get both - you won't regret it!

Its ok Leigh, I missed it on the first read also Smile

Also just remembered
"Karl Fulves" "Self working Coin Magic"
it contains 92 foolproof tricks.
It has some cool tricks & bar bets but no okito/boston routines.


Ps. This is post 301.

If you get the hardcover edition of Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, you could literally spend months just trying to achomplish the routines in the book.... it's got THAT much stuff in it.

I've had my copy for years and I continue to find new stuff in it all the time.
