Hello, I was looking for some good dvds or books about routines to do spectator body loads I mean for example to load the sign card in the jacket. Do you have any suggestion?

Thank you in advance

Gary Jones has a coin routine where he loads a coin into a spectator's breast pocket, it's on his lecture dvd.

Harry Robson under fire - very basic load though
As mentioned, Gary Jones No Frills lecture DVD
James Brown 2008 lecture DVD has a fisr bit about direction of attention
It may be worth looking at pick pocketing stuff as a lot of it is managing peoples personal space

I THINK that EDDIE JOSEPH wrote a book about body loading a spectator about 60+ years ago. Abbott's (Colon,Michigan) published it.

It had good information.

In those days, one of the big gags with a spectator (male) was to "produce" a pint whiskey bottle from inside his coat. Magicians performing for kids would produce a baby nursing bottle. or a string of (Weller) wieners. For many years, I used Weller's wieners, and a rubber chicken.

I learned a lot from that book, and used some of what I learned, when I did a pick pocker act in the '60s. (See Puggo'a poat above.)

In my soon to be published book, I discuss, at length, why that type of trick is seldom seen today. ("Invasion of personal space) Especially with kids, some might be concerned about child abuse.

Michael Skinner has a routine where he loads cards in a spectators pocket. I'm sorry I don't remember where it's published. It might be on the 10 CD Michael Skinner taped correspondence with Alan Okawa.

Dick, Eddie Joseph did indeed publish a book, The Art of Body Loading & Productions...

It was great fun loading hat coils back in the day!

Apollo Robbins has an effect on Cultural Xchange DVD called "Pits to Pockets" where he loads the card on the spectator and then produces the card from the spectator's pants pocket.

Ravi Mayar does an explanation of pick-pocketing pretending to take things from front trouser pockets whilst loading cards or coins.

I look for jackets over chairs, then load as I move past. Leave it a few minutes, then goband entertain that table.
