Congreave’s Curiosities by Chris Congreave
The name Chris Congreave is synonymous with commercial close up routines and ideas. As a full time close up pro for over a decade, he has learned how to hone his magic in order to make it totally practical for performance to lay people in the real world, and this new book brings together a collection of 40 of his best ideas as well as providing you with three essays that offer sage advice.
Although a few of his routines do require some elements of sleight of hand, much of his material is extremely straightforward or even virtually self working. In fact, the variety and breadth of the material makes it ideal both for those just starting out and also for those with more technical ability and knowledge.
When a full time pro elects to share his worker routines with the wider magical public, it pays to sit up and take notice. This excellent collection of close up, which is a combination of some previously published and released material as well as items that are being revealed for the first time, should be in the hands of every discerning performer who aspires to present commercial close up magic.
