McBride videos are great, and happen to be some of my favorites. But I would also say that while they have a lot of great flourishes, they lean more toward card manipulations, like producing single cards and card fans. But you will get a good mix of everything with Jeff's set, and he is an awesome teacher.

If you are leaning more towards just flourishes, I would also recommend Andre Jikh's Genesis:

Also, if you can give us more detail on the types of flourishes you like, we can help you even more. Listed below are some examples:

Card fanning
Card and fan productions
Sybils (rotating/manipulating packets of cards into a complex cut)
Changes (changing one card into another)
Packet Displays

That and are you looking to add a little extra style to your card magic (i.e. Lepaul Spread for picking a card)...or are you just wanting to perform flourishes in and of themselves?

My favorite is 'Fans, Flourishes and False Shuffles' by Richard Turner. The Bucks do have a lot out there so they're probably easier (and cheaper) to find. Sheridan was good but hard to follow for some reason.

Robert P., thanks for so many great resources. This is an area where I need a lot of improvement so these links will be very useful. I've not worked with cards nearly as much as other things and it's time that I did something about that.

I, too, think the D'evo DVD is worth the price for its fanning section alone. And let's be honest: the most fundamental flourishes are the Charlier and the fan. Nearly everything else is a variation of the two.

Jerry Cestkowski’s terrific and seminal book, “Encyclopedia of Playing Card Flourishes” is sold with DVD sets as follows:

http://www.flourishman.com/DVDs.htm


"The Encyclopedia of Playing Card Flourishes
Cover to Cover, Volume 1"
See the Flourishman perform every flourish in Chapters 1 through 3 of what is already considered the bible of fancy playing card manipulations. In addition to demonstrating the first 56 stunts in the already classic "Encyclopedia," there are 56 performance tips, 3 basic chapter-specific routines, 3 additional routines, and more than 50 additional flourishes. There is even a section on how to prepare cards for flourishes plus outtakes and the kind of madness only the Flourishman could generate. See the famous L-Cut, 6-Packet Display Cut, and Fan Twirl in action. See a behind-the-back L-X Quad Cut sequence. See many original creations never before published, not even in the "Encyclopedia." See more than 25 years of experience compressed into easy-to-understand advice that is guaranteed to enhance your artistic card manipulation.


"The Encyclopedia of Playing Card Flourishes
Cover to Cover, Volume 2"
The Flourishman has done it again! Wall-to-wall non-stop action! See the Flourishman perform every flourish in Chapters 4 through 6 of his comprehensive manual of artistic card manipulation. Not only that, but there are performance tips, advice on body and hand positioning, even tips on how to keep the deck square. See stunning routines, including the signature "Twist Cut" routine. See loads of never-before published stunts like the Double Arm Roll Fan Close, the Behind-The-Head Deck Catch, the New Fan Spin and New Fan Spin Close, the Corner To Corner Twirl, the 720 Degree Deck Catch and much more! This second performance-only DVD is a companion to the book itself, which painstakingly teaches every flourish. The flourishes themselves are not taught on this DVD. Just seeing the flourishes in motion and in routines will reveal a wealth of priceless information available nowhere else. And no one but the Flourishman has the endless supply of moves to delivery so much variety at such a manic pace!


"The Encyclopedia of Playing Card Flourishes
Cover to Cover, Volume 3"
The saga continues! See the Flourishman perform every flourish in Chapters 7 through 9 of his comprehensive manual of artistic card manipulation. Not only that, but there are performance tips, advice on routining, and the usual stunning routines.

See never-before published stunts like the Jump Through Shuffle, Double Overhand Shuffle, Back-Arm Changeover Arm-Spread, Giant Upright Arm-Spread, Whole Arm-Spread Catch and many many more! This third performance-only DVD is a companion to the book itself, which painstakingly teaches every flourish. The flourishes themselves are not taught on this DVD. Just seeing the flourishes in motion and in routines will reveal a wealth of priceless information available nowhere else. And no one but the Flourishman has the endless supply of moves to delivery so much variety at such a manic pace!


"The Encyclopedia of Playing Card Flourishes
Cover to Cover, Volume 4"

In addition to demonstrating all of the stunts in the last three chapters of the already classic "Encyclopedia," there are the usual performance tips, chapter-specific routines, additional routines, and more than 50 additional flourishes. There is even a section on teaching you the Flourishman's favorite gags, and for the first time ever, 5 minutes of live stage performance footage. See card juggling, table cuts, deck twirls, aerials, and much more. See many original creations never before published, not even in the "Encyclopedia." See more than 25 years of experience compressed into easy-to-understand advice that is guaranteed to enhance your artistic card manipulation.

Jeff McBride has a great 2 DVD set called The Art of Card Manipulation. That one is great because it takes you through a ton of moves from begginers to advanced!
