Tarbell 3-5: Manipulation and tricks with coins
This extensive area of magic offers the opportunity to develop a broad basis of all dexterities with small objects by dealing with the object coin.
Anyone who, through consistent practice, succeeds in executing and mastering convincing and amazing deceptive maneuvers with coins will receive the highest praise from spectators as well as from experienced professional colleagues.
Tarbell's coin lessons are more relevant today than ever and a must for any coin manipulator. They underlined their importance for the magical world shortly after their appearance in the last century, when well-known magicians such as the coin virtuoso T. Nelson Downs used them as teaching material for their grandiose demonstrations.
The easy-to-understand descriptions of the handles and actions with the help of illustrations make it easy to achieve the desired goal and to incorporate your own skills to create individual routines.
The extensive chapter on manual coin handling is followed by Lessons 4 and 5, which teach entertaining coin routines that attract the attention of the audience.
