Thank you once again Elliott. I have only just spotted yet another monster update in my inbox during June. I can't quite believe it's up to 500 pages now. :shock: :D

Do you have any plans for a paper version of this masterpiece?

I have just downloaded this magnificent collection of switchcraft. Thank You so much!

I can't seem to find any video footage but I have plenty of reading to do anyway and the clear photographs are very easy to follow.

Thanks again.

The vids are embedded in the pdf and are quite a late addition to the document. As far as I know, you can only view them using Adobe's pdf reader. I use PDF-XChange Viewer, which can't display them.

Thank you so much, jackleg and Wishmaster.

There are presently three videos embedded in the PDF.

One, on page 247, is for Christopher Taylor’s Reverse Clip Switch.

The second video, on page 390, pertains to Millard Longman’s Acidus Novus Healing.

The third video, on page 400, is for Millard Longman’s Acidus Novus peek.

If you are running a windows operating system, with windows media player and a reasonably current (version 6 or later) version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (which is free,) the three videos should all play when clicked on.

Several Mac owners reported having to “jump threw some hoops” to get the three videos to run on their systems. A workaround was posted on the Magic Café, but I have not tested it, as I do not own a Mac.

Thanks again,

Elliott

Just purchased this as I'm developing an interest in mentalism effects and need a good, newbie friendly billet switch!

You'd made a good purchase decision there. If you read nothing else, and maybe even learn nothing else but a fraction of Switchcraft, you will be able to perform as many miracles as your imagination will allow.

It has revolutionised my approach to performing. If I come across as a bit of a fan it's because I am a tomb like this could fetch 10 times the price! so well written with clear pictures... what more could you ask for - Oh yes and video's!
:D

Supplement 19 just went out to my whole mailing list. A fair number of copies bounced due to file size, spam filters, etc. So, if you are on my list and did not get a copy, please send me your name and email address and I will do my best to get you the latest edition within the week.

Anyways, the Switchcraft file available on my site now includes:

Switchcraft
The Billet Machine
Billet Proof
Silver Billet
Back from the Dead
Stack Master
CT's Switch
Q 4 U 2
The Zombie Chicken Read
Alexander Marsh’s Tel.
Ken Krenzel’s Psychologia
Secrets of the Masters Volume One
Secrets of the Masters Volume Two
Playing with Blocks
Secrets of the Masters Volume Three
Tervil Extra Bold and Other Cool Stuff
The Switchcraft Holiday Special
Three
ConFab Four and More!
Chiber & Other Cool Stuff

Special thanks to David Numen for contributing “Chiber;” the featured item in the latest supplement.

The supplement includes a special bonus section with “Still Dead,” “Deader,” “A Test of Power RevisiDEAD” and “Is that a Dead Guy in your Pocket?”

It also includes some discussion on how turn older sequences from Switchcraft into Living & Dead Tests or give them spooky themes.

Thanks again,

Elliott

Thank you, Stephen and liverpool 7.

At the moment, there are three videos embedded in the Switchcraft file.

However, as the videos are in WMV format, they require a bit of extra work to watch on a Mac.

Therefore, to make things easier on Mac owners, I am now also providing the three videos in the Mac-friendly MOV format.

Mac users (and PC users, if desired) can download the Mac friendly videos as separate files when purchasing Switchcraft.

If any existing customers need the Mac video files, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Thanks again,

Elliott
