Where are the best places to learn thimble manipulation? I tend to prefer books, but I would still be interested in DVDs as well.

Here are three recommendations that will keep you busy for a few years:

1. Jeff McBride's World Class Manipulation DVDs 1, 2 and 3.

2. The Complete Al Leech book published by Magic Inc.

3. Rosini's thimble routine in the Dai Vernon Book of Magic.

I second what JNeal said. For smaller thimbles, Joe Mogar's book Digital Deceptions is really, really good.

Duke Stern wrote a thimble book he gave me when he worked at the Indianapolis Abbott's store in 1949. Don't know if the book is still around but someone might have.

I would recommend Tops Treasury of Thimble Magic. It's available as a $4 instant download from Abbott's website.

A question I ask regularly is what can be done to quiet nested thimbles. I would love to do Thimple Thimbles table hopping, but too loud. Any suggestions appreciated.

Do one of two things, buy and use Fakini Thimbles.

The other answer is KISS. One cannot manipulate four for five thimbles without some knocking against each other. So use less thimbles. A simple routine is more surprising then a longer routine while strolling.

Depending on the routine, consider using steals.

I just remembered! In one of his books, Karrell Fox had a very fine thimble routine, It was short, funny and a real punch finish (8 thimbles).

I'll try to look up which book it's in. (Ha! another Charlie Miller!)

He did Dick and what's more he also published in one of them a great gag with a thimble for close-up work.
