The three DVD set of Eric Jones is out.

Magic form the man with the natural Vernon Touch has finally made it. It's marketed at Ellusionist.
No review of mine could render justice to Eric's work. I'm so biased in favor of the type of magic that he performs that I would create doubt where I'd like to establish certainties. This is the slickest, cleanest real magic that we've seen in a long time. No arrogance, no show off, just sheer pleasure and "real magic" effects.
Shoot, I'm getting old! The new generation is starting doing better magic than we, old dogs, are doing. It's rarer than 99.9999% of the young guys think but here... it's just true.

Whether you look at cards, coins, sponges... it's just flawless. I take my hat off and bow.

I know Eric is brilliant with coins but if it's not sacrilage to ask..what is the
sponge ball routine like? or how is it different from other such routines.

As with the rest of his magic, the effects are not essentially new but, as always with Eric, it's choreographed to appear like pure magic.

If you think about it the effect of a card turning over in a Twisting the aces is not really new but the way Eric choreographed it is like a revolution. A card change isn't new but the way Eric choreographs it makes it a pure miracle.

If you thing about the coin work you could say the same thing and there are no especially difficult knucklebuster: apparition of coins, coins across vanishing coins...

So the Extension Of Me DVD is a lesson in choosing simple sleights and learning how to make our tricks look like pure magic: a way to learn the Vernon Touch

From the add:

"Eric Jones is THE real deal!" This is what top magicians from all around the world are saying after seeing Eric Jones perform his stunning close up magic. Eric has long been known to the magic underground, but now he is catching on like a wild fire. Eric is smooth as silk and his magic truly looks like magic... slow, beautiful, stunning. For years, Eric has closely guarded his material and refrained from making DVDs or sharing his work in detail. He has finally decided that now is the time to share it with you in his new three-DVD set "An Extension of Me."

In this stunningly produced three-DVD set you will have Eric take you through effects using cards, coins, and sponge balls in painstaking detail. Every piece of Eric's magic is thought out to the nth degree. It looks and feels like real magic because Eric has thought out every detail, every nuance and finally shares this all with you.

This project has been in the works for over two years with multiple shoots as Eric wanted to ensure that everything from the production to the teaching to the material was top-notch. The teaching takes you through each piece in tremendous detail from various angles. The DVDs are beautifully produced and packaged in a stunning fold-out case. The performances are pure magic. The thinking is superb. Eric is smooth as silk and so can you be if you follow Eric's careful teaching. You will use the effects from this DVD set and you will also find wonderful ideas, handlings, and sleights to apply to your existing magic.
Also included as a bonus is a special gimmick coin so you can immediately start working on Eric's stunning version of The Karate Coin that has been hailed by coin experts from around the world as THE best version of this now classic effect.

SpeedFly

The cost would have been heavier than the price of Eric's DVD set and possibly not found to be as magic as the illusions in the said DVDs

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to take a moment to say that I'm VERY excited about this release. It contains some of my FAVORITE material, most of which I perform on a daily basis. I know a $90 price tag may seem expensive to some, but a promise you you'll find several effects that will fit YOUR style, regardless of your skill level.

PM me if you have ANY questions!!!

I'm happy to say that all preorders both international and domestic have shipped and should be arriving to you guys in the coming days. I'm eager to finally get some feedback on these.

Peo, I'm envious of your avatar photo. I hope to take a photo w/ Tamariz in San Diego next month!!!!

Pitchford, we'll need to pencil each other in one day soon. I've made some headway on the subject we discussed, but may need some of your special brand of help. Smile

What coin is the gimmicked coin? Is it a standard half dollar? The description doesn't tell the purchaser. Thanks!

The gimmick is a hand-crafted Karate Coin fashioned from an American Kennedy head half dollar. Keep the questions coming guys!!!! Smile

Just one question. What coins should I have already for when I receive this set to immediately start practicing without having to go and buy more coins?

Great question Rpascual!!! For 3 of the coin tricks you'll need a Gravity Flipper and s***l set, and up to 3 regular coins. For Hellbound Spellbound, you'll need 2 Sterling Chinese Coins(b/c they fit inside an expanded s***l). The other coin routines are ungimmicked.

The Expletive Vanish is NOT on this new DVD set, but thank you so much for asking about it. It's on the back burner. In 2009, I found a solution to the vanish that will allow the performer to use the technique to vanish a borrowed coin as well. Look for it in a routine called Circles in the not too distant future.

GREAT questions guys!!!!
