Mark Tams – The David Neighbors Project Vol 1

David Neighbors Project - Volume 1 - Vanishing Inc. Magic shop

The goal for The David Neighbors Project series is threefold. First, to make David’s work on coin magic over the years available to the magic fraternity as pieces of art. Second, to “add to the progress” of magic. Last, to leave a legacy of literature available to the world of magic for generations to come.

We now have an opportunity to step into the mind of David and reap the benefits of his creativity in the world of coin magic and beyond. This 5 volume anthology is only the tip of the iceberg; David is a creative machine who will continue to brainstorm and invent for years to come.

In Volume One, the reader will find three chapters – Debut, which is a compilation of routines that involve production of coins, vanishes of coins or a combination of both. Under a Spell – David’s in-depth work on the subject of Spellbound. Through and Through – many of his best approaches to this classic plot of Coins Through Table. David’s original sleights are fully explained and illustrated along with a few essays.

All in all, there are 70 routines in the book. 58 of them do not require a comprehensive gaff or no gaff at all. Others use gimmicked coins such as expanded shells, flipper coins or Sun and Moon sets.

“I was fortunate enough to be asked to review and proof read David’s material in Volume One. The routines and material are so good, I don’t want to send the proofs back. Every magician, regardless of which area of magic they study will benefit from learning this material.”Troy Hooser
