The Magic Gourmet by Lewis Jones


*Now available as an eBook.*

Hard copy version out of print.

Three-quarters of the effects use playing cards. The rest use coins, bills, books, rubber bands, business cards, and calendars.

  • Spectators read each others’ minds.

  • A tossed coin will fall heads-up or tails-up, as you wish.

  • You beat a gambler who plays by the random throws of two dice — even though the dice are imaginary.

  • You demonstrate that you can always tell when a player is bluffing.

  • You perform the 4-card Brainwave with four ordinary cards.

  • You push cards through the table, one at a time.

  • A signed card vanishes and re-appears inside a magazine at any pre-determined page.

  • Anyone thinks of a card from a shuffled deck, then goes to the phone, and is told the card he is thinking of.

  • Someone grabs one of your cards and pockets it — what you do? You’ll find out how you can still come out on top.

What they say about The Magic Gourmet

  • If you are looking for a stimulating book of magic, mostly but not entirely involving cards, a book which consists of tricks which will take a bit of work but are worth it, I highly recommend Lewis Jones’s The Magic Gourmet
               - Matthew Field (Magic Circular, January 2008)

  • This book has something, actually a lot, for most magicians. It is a pleasant read, has many photographs, contains world-class close-up magic, and it is all easy to do! Highly recommended. 
              - Paul A. Lelekis (The Linking Ring, January 2008)

What they've said about Lewis Jones's other books —

  • I highly recommend the Lewis Jones set of card books … I know that most magicians will go through life performing the same six or seven tricks … Me too, but I have added several to my permanent performance range, thanks to Lewis.
               Paul Daniels

  • Do not buy these books. They give away too many secrets. 
               - Penn and Teller

  • Lewis Jones really does ponder his subject at length. In this respect I am reminded of Paul Curry and Stewart James … His thoughtful and analytical approach is not at all out of place in such company. 
               - Al Smith (Abra)

  • Back in 2001, I was sharply chastized for mentioning Lewis Jones, then a little-known British card genius whose manuscripts were closely guarded by those fortunate to have acquired them … For those unfamiliar with Lewis Jones, he is an original of the stripe of Jerry Andrus, Simon Aronson, and Lennart Green. In Jones’ case, his originality lies in a depth of thinking that leads to why-didn’t-I-think-of-that sleights or to devilishly clever mathematical (often self-working) mysteries. Jones’ trick descriptions will tantalize you. They read like dealer ads, yet, unlike many dealer ads, they deliver on their promises. 
               - Steve Bryant (Little Egypt Magic)

  • Lewis Jones is one of the great creative minds in magic. He specialises in close-up card magic with an ungaffed deck, placing the emphasis on ingenuity rather than sleights … Lewis has a remarkable mind, which, allied to a profound knowledge of existing card methodology, comes up with alarmingly baffling plots and equally deceptive methods. 
               - Ian Rowland

  • I was reminded of the creations of Stewart James. 
               - Michael Close (Magic)

  • Among authors of card magic, Lewis is easily in my top ten. His approach is off the wall and his results are out of this world. 
               - Steve Beam (The Linking Ring)
