David Regal - Approaching Magic


David Regal has created more great close-up magic in the past decade than anyone else I can think of. His previous books Star Quality Close-Up & PersonalandConstant Fooling(volumes 1 and 2) contain enough material to keep a magician practicing for a lifetime. But Approaching Magicis twice the size of his previous efforts and it's just as good.

Regal has a penchant for creating very direct magic which he intertwines with clever and funny presentations. He seems to effortlessly use his experience as a comedy writer to add dynamism to his script. Most of the effects are very easy to follow with very direct methods.

The style of magic inApproaching Magicis much the same as that in his previous books. His card magic employs interesting methods to sit alongside fun direct effects. But there's less card magic in Approaching Magic than in his earlier works in place of some larger parlor and stage magic. Some of these items will require a little DIY but they're some of the best in the book. His effect "In Darkness" reminds me of "Dean's Box" in that it's an incredibly fooling and elegant sequence using a large prop (but unlike "Dean's Box" is compact and easy-to-carry). It's a penetration of a ring and wand that would have fooled the crap out of me. Similarly his "The Power of Love" is an hilarious yet massively fooling stage routine utilizing a borrowed ring.
