Harry Riser's reputation as a magician's magician, a man who can astound both the public and his peers, has been established for many decades. His ability to hone the "cutting edge" has kept him firmly among the avant-garde to the present day. Almost ten years ago Ed Brown wrote The Feints and Temps of Harry Riser, a large selection of Riser magic. It was immediately acclaimed by the cognoscenti. A sequel was always planned, but various factors delayed its completion. Hermetic Press is proud to announce that that book, written this time by Mr. Riser himself, is now completed. Secrets of an Escamoteur offers Riser material that the professionals have long been waiting for. In its 247 pages, full details are given on- THE MALINI EGG BAG: its construction and the extraordinarily cunning Riser routine. CHARLIE MILLER'S methods for breaks, double turnover, spread force and second deal. BAFFLING CARD MAGIC: 45 Riser sleights, tricks and routines structured to fool everyone-yes, everyone. THE RISER RINGS: the legendary linking-rings routine with three rings that defies the experts and astounds the public, on stage or up close. Secrets of an Escamoteur is a top-quality hardcover in large format, offering clear and detailed text, painstakingly and copiously illustrated by Earle Oakes.
