Doug Edwards is known throughout the world for his straightforward approach to card magic. You will find all sorts of surprises and gems with a pack of cards, but the biggest surprise in Nukes is the non-card material included. Doug has finally released his work on magic with ropes, coins, pens, spoons, and more, giving Nukes a wonderful balance between card magic and tricks with other props. Mr. Edwards has even consented to release some unpublished material from some of the greatest minds in magic and mentalism: Roy Benson, Cardini, Dunninger and Zarrow.
You'll learn a strange book test method Dunninger used for years, a critical detail in Roy Benson's legendary "Benson Bowl" routine that has never been discussed publicly. Also, we'll explore a special pack of cards employed by the great Cardini, with unpublished handlings.
You will learn Doug's preferred opening effect, a beautiful and easy Ace-cutting procedure, and a subtlety that will take your Zarrow Shuffle to a new level of deceptiveness. Nukes is the result of years spent writing and decades spent developing the material. It is a fascinating and varied approach to magic, by one of the field's most dedicated and enigmatic creators.
"I've traveled over most of the world, met magicians in most of the places I've visited. Doug Edwards is still one of the best close-up people I know or have known. In some areas, and within my knowledge and areas of expertise, he is not one of the best - he is THE best."
