The ideas and design of this deck were created by Theodore L. De Land in the first decade of the 1900s. More than 100 years later, De Land's marked deck and his other magical inventions continue to fool audiences...and even the most skeptic observer.

  • Great video companion for Hugard's classic book on the fundamentals of card magic
    "The Royal Road to Card Magic" by Hugard & Braue is a classic text book that continues to be recommended by many as the place to begin a serious journey into card magic, as an ideal course for learning all the fundamentals of card magic. But it can be difficult to learn something from printed text alone, and it can really be of benefit to see a trick being performed and taught on video, and that's where these DVDs come in. This product is a set of DVDs that was first published in 2005. It comes in a case that houses four DVDs. With many hours of run time, the videos go through all the chapters of the book, with magician Rudy Hunter carefully explaining all the sleights and moves, and the effects that can be performed with them. Rudy Hunter doesn't have the dynamic or lively persona of the typical overly-exuberant in-your-face street magician, but he is a professional, and this is a great demonstration of classic close-up card magic that is performed very smoothly and cleanly he Royal Road to Card Magic covers all these basic, important and versatile sleights needed for card magic, and provides a thorough education in the fundamentals. Geared to complete beginners, what I like about how it is set up is that it first explains the techniques needed for mastering a sleight, but then goes on to include one or more routines that employ that sleight. Working your way through the course will give you a systematic and complete education in card magic, and give you many tricks to work with. Rudy Hunter does an excellent job in this particular version, and his slow and deliberate explanation makes his teaching easy to follow, especially for beginners. This is an excellent learning tool for people starting out in card magic! - BoardGameGeek reviewer EndersGame
