Mainspring by Alexander Hansford (eBook)




Item Details
“How to handle playing cards”

Explore handling adjustments, exercises, thought experiments, essays and stories, all intent on creating a deeper appreciation for the magic we do, and achieving a softer handling of cards.

There are no tricks inside the book.

It pretends to no completeness. It will undoubtedly stir within the reader many other ideas, notions and prejudices that could also have been included. Such further thoughts, additions and objections are really what this book is about. This is a springboard from which to progress, a Mainspring, if you will, as the main agent of motivation to a more considered look at what we do and how we do it.

This is a companion to Sprezzatura and to the collaborative projects produced with Dan & Dave. Sprezzatura is the What, Mainspring is the How and Why.
