John Bannon’s highly-engineered, yet easy-to-do brand of magic shines in this retrospective.

Over forty complete routines are described in Bannon’s easy-going readable style. Here are the tricks and the clever, innovative thinking behind them. Collected from Bannon’s publications over the ten years since his internationally best-selling Dear Mister Fantasy, you’ll find an impressive variety as well:

Sophisticated “fractal” packet tricks Contemporary gambling demonstrations Ultramodern Ace assemblies Unorthodox “garden path” tricks Unconventional transpositions Refined mental mysteries High Caliber covers the magical waterfront with a fresh, original view.

Yet, notwithstanding this extraordinary breadth, no gaffs are employed and no difficult moves are required. Virtually all of the routines use regular cards, most are impromptu, and quite a few are self-working. Typical of Bannon’s work, each layered construction has been polished until the trick has a point, a purpose, and a place in the magical firmament.

All in, High Caliber is a remarkable collection of card magic by a modern master.

A 7 x 10″ deluxe cloth bound volume with dust jacket; over 300 pages, illustrated with photographs.
