Hello Café Members!

Does anyone know if there are any Books, Lecture Notes or DVDs that exclusively feature Effects With Jumbo Cards?

Thank you in advance for your replies.

I have a set that I can perform both with jumbo cards and poker cards. I start with Small Triumph by Nobuyuki Nojima from Asian Astonishments by Steve Marshall. Be sure to soap the cards, otherwise, proper handling may be impossible. I use the same cards for EZ Oil and Water from Nathan Kranzo's Easy Card Magic.

I have my eye on Kranzo's Easy Card Magic... Haven't bought it yet. What's your verdict? In addition to EZ Oil and Water what would you say are the gems?

Thanks!
