RELAXED IMPOSSIBILITIES is what result when an acclaimed master of card magic sets out to explore how advanced sleight-of-hand can be made far easier to attain through a perceptive study of economy of action married to efficient placement of cards.
By applying a lifetime of study and ability, world-respected expert Ken Krenzel has developed innovative methods that will place techniques long perceived as extremely difficult into the hands of card magicians possessing average skills. Such advanced sleights as palms, steals, switches, side steals, bottom deals and top changes, sleights previously used by only the most dedicated and gifted card technicians, are ingeniously modified and re-imagined to put them into your performing repertoire within a few weeks, rather than years.
After providing a variety of sleights capable of wide utility, Krenzel delivers a collection of tricks and routines that apply these tools and others. The result is magic that ranges from eye-popping visuals to logic-defying card mysteries, many of which take place solely in the hands of the spectator! Indeed, this type of hands-off card magic, designed to leave no easy answers for audiences, is a special focus of Dr. Krenzel in this book.
RELAXED IMPOSSIBILITIES teaches material designed for those who desire to broaden their skills and give their audiences an experience they've never before had. In its pages many new pathways are opened and some stunning destination points are provided.
These are just four of the more than thirty new items in KEN KRENZEL'S RELAXED IMPOSSIBILITIES. All are thoroughly taught, aided by over 170 expert illustrations by Earle Oakes. When you add streamlined and accessible manipulation to new principles of sleight-less card magic, the result is RELAXED IMPOSSIBILITIES. You now can relax too, they are awaiting you.
