After being out of print for nearly twenty-five years, copies of Earl Nelson's Variations were fetching over $200, and no wonder. Earl has twice been voted Close-Up Magician of the Year at the Magic Castle. With the publication of Variations Revisited, Earl's book is back bigger and better than ever. Though it contains all of the original material, Variations Revisited is definitely not a reprint. The original text has been corrected and expanded, there are 270 new, crystal-clear photographs by Bill Taylor, the new size allows it to lay flat on the table for ease of study and there is an entire section of brand new material. It is here you will find the incredible Miller Variable Placement. Upon seeing Earl perform this versatile move, some of the most knowledgeable magicians in the business called it revolutionary.  151 pages, introduction by Dai Vernon, hardbound with a striking dustjacket. $40.

For anyone unfamiliar with [Earl] Nelson and his work, let it suffice to say that he belongs in the pantheon of the very best 20th century close-up magicians. If you're serious about high-quality card magic, and you appreciate when it is taught and photographed properly, then it's about time you revisited Variations Revisited. – Jason England MAGIC magazine.

Earl Nelson has deservedly taken his place as one of the true masters of intimate sleight-of-hand magic of our time. – Genii magazine.

I can virtually guarantee there are things here you can and will use. Highly recommended.Linking Ring magazine.
