10 elegant, perfectly-constructed performance pieces for advanced card magicians.

Instructions from Miracles is a stunning hardcover book written by Friedrich Roitzsch, a talented German magician that has been performing and creating magic for over 20 years. Specializing in sophisticated card magic, Friedrich knows exactly what makes a card trick commercial and memorable.

The effects included in Instructions for Miracles breathe new life into familiar plots. Friedrich’s impressive skill and intelligent presentations make each effect a treat to learn and perform. Everything is perfectly described across nearly 100 pages with more than 85+ crystal-clear illustrations. Complete with a foreword by Pit Hartling and an exquisite, relief-varnished cover by Jörg Willich, this is a delightful addition to your bookshelf.

We will be honest with you that this book is definitely not for beginners. It is designed for experienced card magicians willing to put in the work. Those who do will be rewarded with an array of card magic masterpieces.

“One of Friedrich’s great talents is to identify strong, solid effects and then to put in the important work to streamline, combine, enhance and create the best version and handling. All ten effects in this book are amazing, elegant, beautiful pieces of magic.”Pit Hartling

“I’ve seen Friedrich perfect the routines in this book over many years. They are strong and clean effects the audience will talk about.”Denis Behr

“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Friedrich for over 30 years, witnessing some fo these ideas, moves and routines take shape and others fooling the heck out of me. He’s one of the best sleight of hand artists I know. So, do yourself a favor and follow Friedrich’s instructions, you’ll be rewarded with miracles.”Thomas Fraps

“I have witnessed Friedrich several times performing effects from this book in front of real audiences and the perfection of his effects was always breathtaking. Even the smallest details were honed over the years and the results you’ll find in this book full of miracles.”Wolfgang Moser

Contents of Instructions for Miracles

Switch’em
After an impressive demonstration of hand-mucking, the magician exposes an innocent member of the audience as a professional card cheat before coaxing them into performing an even more remarkable card switch.

Luminous Readers
Convince your participant that, when looking through a “special” pair of glasses, the backs of four aces seemingly appear in a different color.

Robin Hood
A card is thrown high in the air and then caught back in the deck where it splits a chosen card (which can even be signed).

Fastest Card Trick in the World
A lightning-fast transpo of four signed Aces and Kings. It is then instantly repeated, but this time the Kings go into four different pockets. (Check this one out in the video above!)

Power Matcha
Despite all the cards being seemingly mixed, your participant continues to impossibly find the mate of a chosen card several times. Then, as a kicker finale, the whole deck arranges itself into pairs.

Nine Card Monte Revisited
A squeaky-clean take on the classic José Carroll effect that allows all the cards to be examined at the end.

Far Out
Without ever coming near the deck of cards, you’re able to divine three freely-chosen cards.

Out of this Card Box
A wildly-clever take on the iconic “Out of This World” by Paul Curry with an “outside the box” concept that enables you to start from a shuffled deck.

Magic Squared
Four chosen cards from a special number deck add up to a freely selected number. This is repeated until a full magic square is on the table.

Instructions for a Miracle
A signed card appears bound into a small booklet in this wonderfully practical and direct version of a fantastic José Carroll effect. (Please be advised that this trick is heavily inspired by “El Milagro” by Juan Manuel Marcos and is taught as if you are already familiar with the basic workings of that effect).
