In keeping with our reputation for producing only the finest in quality close-up magic, Jeff Busby Enterprises proudly presents two fine routines by Japan's master sleight of hand artist - Shigeo Takagi.
Personal demonstration by Takagi and movies of both routines detailed below were used in the writing of the manuscripts to ensure that none of the fine details were omitted.
This extremely novel one cup and ball routine created a sensation when performed by Takagi in public and private sessions at the Washington I.B.M. convention.
A ball is magically produced from the tip of a wand. It immediately vanishes and reappears beneath a beautiful wooden cup. The ball vanishes again and is reproduced from the performer's pocket. After a penetration sequence and more transpositions, the ball refuses to return to the cup. The cup is slapped and a large load ball drops out! But wait...For the stunning climax, the cup is displayed and shown to be a solid block of wood with no interior at all!
This is not "push -button" magic. You will need some sleight of hand ability to perform this topflight routine and it does require practice. If you master this, it will be an effect that your audience will always remember.
To help you learn this routine, over 35 fine line drawings have been prepared. A separate typeset booklet containing comprehensive instructions will help you to master this with ease.
The cup is lathe turned from hardwood in the style of the popular "Paul Fox" cup. Beautifully made and well worth the price. $12.50 for the cup, instructions and illustrations. Please add $1.50 for Parcel Post delivery in the U.S., $2.50 for Surface Mail to any other part of the world. $4.00 for Air Mail delivery to any part of the world. 40$ extra for insurance in the U.S. only.

Shigeo Takagi's Coin Assembly
There have been many coin assemblies, but none this unique! Here is magic in the classical style, incorporating many ingenious moves and sequences never before used in this type of effect.
In brief, four coins cleanly assemble to under one of four covering cards. This version is done in "slow-motion" with fresh ideas raved over by the experts. No rapid actions as are evident in most current versions of this effect.
This routine does take sleight of hand ability and is not for the novice. Over 45 fine line drawings help to make this easy to learn. A separate booklet of text, keyed to the illustrations, clearly worded to help to understand this outstanding routine is included. The price is $4.50 for the illustrations and text in a plastic strip binder. Please include $1.00 extra for postage and packing in the U.S., $1.50 for Surface Mail to any part of the world. $2.50 for Air Mail delivery to any part of the world. 40$ extra for insurance in the U.S. only. California residents include sales tax. Purchase this routine in conjunction with the ONE CUP ROUTINE and the COIN ASSEMBLY will be sent post free.
