Par Dariel Fitzkee
Livre en anglais.
The Trick Brain was created as a tool to help magicians develop new
tricks. It teaches you how to create the mechanics of an effect with the understanding
that how an effect is accomplished is not as important as the effect itself.
The Trick Brain is no mere book of tricks. It incorporates one of
the most amazing ideas ever developed in magic. Dariel Fitzkee reduces all
magic tricks to only 19 general, basic effects. Then he examines all the possible
ways of combining any of these effects. He shows how to develop new tricks from
old and how to evolve new plots and methods.
Then, you are introduced to The Trick Brain, an ingenious system devised
by Fitzkee, that actually :
- creates new effects...
- tells you what you will need to develop...
- actual things to use--and finally...
- how to do the trick--even suggesting alternate methods !
Use this astounding system to create original tricks and original shows, or
use it to revise old tricks. Reclaim magic props you no longer use.
All of this is contained in a beautifully printed, 316 page hardbound volume.
"The Trick Brain was definitely ahead of its time. It formalized a way of
brainstorming, teaching the process... Whether you use Fitzkee's actual steps
or just use them as inspiration, The Trick Brain lets you appreciate
the way magic is created and definitely starts you thinking in new ways."
