Great Map School Volume 1-2 | Roberto Giobbi
A classic of German-language magic literature! It can no longer be described as a magic book, because strictly speaking it is a specialist course in the art of magic with cards, which is structured and designed in such detail that nothing, absolutely nothing, remains open.
Jörg Alexander Weber wrote the following about this work in the magazine Magic: "Anyone who knows Roberto Giobbi a little better knows that a more suitable author for such a map school can hardly be imagined."
Roberto has a huge wealth of magical experience, which he has acquired through years of consistent and enthusiastic study of specialist literature and through his many close contacts with great magicians all over the world.
What makes the Great Map School so valuable is the fact that the techniques described are always some of the best and most practical in their category.
Roberto also supports the rehearsal of the individual techniques by pointing out frequently made mistakes and giving valuable tips in so-called control points.
One or more trick descriptions round off the individual fingering chapters. They clearly show in which context the respective techniques can be used, for example, and thus motivate them to study.
The glossary of German and English terms and a comprehensive index are also particularly valuable!
