Encyclopedia of Card Sleights Volumes 7 and

By Daryl

L&L Publishing has also released the final two volumes in Daryl's monumental card series. The format is the same as in previous volumes of the series: Daryl demonstrates and explains an enormous number of card sleights. Volume 7 contains information on False Displays, False Dealing, Color Changes, and Switches & Changes. A couple things I noted on this tape: Daryl offers some excellent tips and suggestions for moves that you may think you already know. I was particularly taken by a bit of finesse for Ed Marlo's Olram Subtlety. Daryl also teaches many of his own methods for these various moves, and these methods are uniformly excellent. The section on False Dealing is less than comprehensive. In fact, no bottom deal is actually taught. If you're really interested in getting information on false deals I would suggest you look into the new Alan Ackerman videos from A-1 MultiMedia.

Volume 8 finishes up the discussion of Switches & Changes, and continues with the Top Change, Packet Switches, Flourishes, and Miscellaneous information (including the Spread Cull and two methods for folding a card). The tape concludes with a lesson on how to peel cards.

As I have mentioned in my reviews of the previous tapes of the series, these are excellent videos, and will be very instructive, especially when combined with the information available in the standard card texts. There is no longer any excuse for sloppy card technique. I recommend all the tapes in this series.
