Just a Second
Out of Oil
The Overhand DPS
The Combination Shuffle
A New Angle
The Art of Practice
Influence and Deception
Not only will each volume of The Shift contain powerful effects and techniques, but with regular articles on the art of practice and the nature of deception, it will present new methods for supercharging your skills, and brand new insights into the psychology of magic.
The Shift is specifically designed to assist you as you learn, to be read on-the-go but also look great on your bookshelf. It is a high-quality, full colour, hard-backed publication—with every element produced in collaboration with industry experts.
The layout, colours, typeface and photographs are more than just stylistic choices; everything has been intentionally designed with the reader's learning and enjoyment in mind. The Shift dives beneath the surface of magic and gives you answers to problems you didn’t know you had.
Ben’s intention for The Shift was not only to give readers powerful, practical magic, but to create a resource which stimulates new conversations and attitudes towards the art and craft of magic. This is not your average magic book… it goes much deeper.
