Roger Curzon is one of the UK’s real hidden treasures in card magic. A creative mind like no other, Roger over the years has blown the minds of fellow magicians time and time again. Roger is a modest man but is well known to those around him as a true master of his craft. This is the first release of a series of tutorial DVDs where Roger reveals for the first time the true inner workings of his prized repertoire.
His Miracle Signed Card In Envelope has become known world wide as The Curzon Envelope. First launched in 1988 it has been copied and ‘improved’ many times. But the elegance and simplicity of Roger’s original effect, and its accompanying gimmick, has not been bettered.
In 1999 Magic published a book of routines built around the Curzon Envelope principle with additional material by Wayne Dobson, Peter Duffie, Mike Rogers, Stephen Tucker and Paul Wilson. In 2010 MagicTricks produced a DVD on the effect, with performances and explanations.
Now for the first time you can buy the complete package — the book and the DVD — at a bargain price, ready for you to perform this effect right away. All the gimmicks are supplied already made up so you don’t need to do anything; just read the book, watch the DVD, learn and perform. You get gimmicks also for a non-sleight-of-hand version as well as a sleight-of-hand version plus Roger’s beautiful Ambitous card routine explained in full!
The Main Effect: Your spectators are shown a red-backed card on full view in a window envelope. They are then asked to pick a card from a blue-backed pack which is signed and placed back into the pack. The red-backed card is clearly pulled out of the windowed envelope. Your spectators will then be dumbfounded as the red card is turned around and they are shown that the red backed card that has been in view the entire time is their signed card!
Roger explains different variations of the routine using his famous Curzon Envelope as well as two great bonus routines that don’t use the envelope that alone are worth the price of the DVD themselves!
Bonus Routines include:
