Jim Tyler is a native of Texas, who has worked restaurants and bars for decades, and in the process accumulated a vast experience of close-up magic techniques. In this section, we’ve assembled all of the items which demonstrate his considerable magical prowess. With their help, you too can become an accomplished close-up magician.
Included in this section is Jim’s range of instructional books – the multi-volume ‘Bamboozlers’ set, each of which measures three by five inches – making them perfect for catching up while you’re on the move. Each comes bound in faux-leather, with silver gilt edges and a page marker. More importantly, each comes packed with Jim’s considerable knowledge of the world of magic.
The tricks included here rely on common objects that you might find around the house. Coins, toothpicks, glasses and dice are all employed cleverly. It’s precisely because these items are so familiar that the effect of them being subverted is so eye-popping!
As well as the Bamboozlers series of books, we’ve also included here a number of other items, including the ‘Doomsday’ range of Bicycle decks, and a few of Jim’s instructional DVDs, including the ‘Mirrors’ and ‘Pockets Full of Miracles’ instructional sets. If you’re in search of wisdom in the ways of the close-up magician, you’ll find few authorities more instructive.
