Sid Lorraine made his reputation as a writer and performer with a keen eye for the commercial. Sid's material, honed over a lifetime of performing, could be counted on show after show, year after year, to entertain his audiences. That's what magic is all about.
This book, Sid Lorraine's Scrapbook, is a compilation of five of Lorraine's most popular works: Patter, More Patter, A Magician in the House, Twenty Two Terrific Tricks and Gags, Routines and Patter. Yes, you'll learn tricks from Sid Lorraine's Scrapbook. Mechanics are described in detail, teaching dozens of card tricks and close-up tricks.
Stage tricks and effects of nearly every genre (including a complete Troublewit routine!) are included, as well; Sid was a master of the magical melange, mixing together paper tears and appearing canes, spirit slates and spelling tricks to amuse, amaze, and entertain. Now Sid's collected wisdom is available in book form. Sid Lorraine's Scrapbook is a well produced, 168-page spiral wire-bound publication, chock full of patter, tricks, gags, insight, opinion and above all, entertaining material for the magician. Highly recommended.
