Handpicked Astonishments is Paul Harris' new concept for teaching the cutting-edge magic on a wide variety of topics. The concept is simple. Rather than try to teach every variation or idea on a topic, he curates. Put simply, these are the absolute BEST five or six effects possible on each topic. No filler—just the ultimate routines you can perform with thumbtips, loops, the Invisible Deck, and card forcing. Taught by expert magician Joshua Jay in meticulous detail and clarity, this is the Tarbell Course for the digital age!
We begin our series with Volume 1: thumb tips, which is perhaps the greatest assemblage of magic possible with the humble thumbtip. Not only are all the basics covered, but you’ll learn how to make a “nesting” thumbtip, several effects you can perform anytime and anywhere, and even two larger routines suitable for bigger audiences. If you have never used a thumbtip before, this is the perfect primer.
