Stewart James is one of the most prolific creators in all of magic history. He created over 2,000 magic tricks in his lifetime--many of which have become "classics." All of Stewart's best creations have been published in "Stewart James in Print: The First Fifty Years" and "The James Files." The books total over 2500 pages across three volumes. No matter if you've been in magic for decades or just a few months, odds are, you've encountered one of Stewart James’s creation's.
This project is dedicated to taking Stewart's material off the page and putting it into action.
Episode #1 uncovers the Spell of Mystery (originally published in 1929) and its variations.
Spell of Mystery - A deck is shuffled. The spectator cuts the deck wherever they want, and the top two cards are used to create a target card. The target card is spelled with cards from the deck, and low and behold, the card is found.
Twice Versa - After performing Spell of Mystery, you can immediately repeat the effect...in reverse.
Big Tutudo - This introduces a plethora of choices into Spell of Mystery to add an additional layer of impossibility.
Love's Labor Lost - This uses the Spell of Mystery concept, but eliminates the spelling giving you a self-working, easy to master card location.
Episode #2 uncovers "Remembering the Future" (originally published in 1947) and its variations.
Remembering the Future - The principle that started it all! It's an unbelievable mathematical principle which doesn't seem possible, and yet, it works every single time.
Remembering the Past, Present, & Future - Madison brings his own take to Stewart's original effect further hiding the mathematics and turning the great principle into a true performance piece.
The 50% Solution - Stewart found a way to perform this same effect with only ten cards. Disguised as a card game between you and the spectator with an end they won't see coming.
