Card Dodgery Review

Official Review

This is a beautifully made book on a very specific style of card magic.

I have not seen a lot of J.K. Hartman’s work in the past, so maybe I’m a little ‘late to the party’ so to speak, but I still found this book enjoyable, even though this style of card magic is also not my personal or professional cup of tea.

The routines are well constructed, and read well. They look like they will both entertain and amaze audiences, and the actual style of writing is readable.

The two stand out effects I read were Color Guller and High Minded. In the later, you deal the spectator a poker hand that they are thinking of. Very clever and very cool!

All in all, if you like card magic, you will find SOMETHING of use in this book.

Manufacturer's Description:

J.K. Hartman is a creative legend. He has been publishing groundbreaking material since 1970. With books like Card Craft, After Craft, and CAAN Craft, he has cemented his reputation as one of the most prolific, innovative card magicians of our time.

Mr. Hartman has announced that his last contribution will be Card Dodgery, and we are honored to be the publisher. You will find that this volume is a swan song for the ages, and a fitting end to an illustrious publishing career.

Card Dodgery is a handsome volume, with 283 pages and over 60 new effects and moves. At the conclusion of the book, you will find a rare interview with the elusive Mr. Hartman; it's the first time he has ever done an interview of this nature for magicians.
