Magic by Gosh
Al Goshman started his career as a baker and ended up a magic sensation who was a regular performer at The Magic Castle. Magic by Gosh details the central components of his repertoire, from the remarkable Salt and Pepper Shaker routine, to his sponge ball act, Winged Silver, Cards through Newspaper, Vanish of 10 Coins, and much more. Goshen was a master of misdirection and his tricks provide rare insights into structure and technique that can be applied to create a wide variety of astonishing magical moments. The book teaches essential Goshman sleights, such as the Toss Vanish, and also includes colorful introductory material by Dai Vernon and Milt Larsen, as well as a biographical sketch of Goshman, and more.
