Roger Curzon's Miracle Card to Envelope


Firstly I must apologise for the lack of posts recently, I have no excuse.  Consider this post a sneak peak into the card wizardry of Roger Curzon, a Sheffield Cardician of exceptional skill. Those of you who have visited The Magick Lounge in Sheffield will almost certainly have seen Roger perform at the weekly Saturday gathering of magicians.

Roger has contributed to numerous magazines (Stephen Tucker’s Spellbinder and Steve Hamilton’s Profile Magazine) and written several books and booklets on card magic and more recently on mentalism (Sublimations and Theomancy).

The routine below is one of my favourites and uses an incredibly clever method which Roger orignally published in Profile Magazine. This has more recently been ripped off by David Regal, who conveniently duplicated the method after it was shown to him by a friend of Rogers.

The illusion of the card being removed from the envelope is perfect. The trick is a stunner and I’ve never seen is performed with out the audience bursting into applause afterwards.

Thank you Roger.

For those of you who want to buy the booklet (containing several routines) – it’s available direct from the Magick Lounge in Sheffield

    I have yet to check out any of Roger Curzon’s books. I am guessing The Magick Lounge will have them in stock. Do you know how many there are or which is your favourite?

    All the best,

    Yeah, they’ll have all of them in stock (they’re all published there). “Blood on the Tricks” is a great book which also contains the Miracle Card in Envelope (which can also be purchased separately but with other routines I think).

    Thanks for posting that video, very good. Do you know the name of the second effect shown?

      I’m kicking myself because I can’t remember the reference – I’m pretty sure its a Marlo item but not sure where it’s published. I’ll keep thinking about it and if it comes I’ll let you know. Sorry to have been of such little help.

    The second effect is I belive is based on Rise Rise Rise from the Tabled palm booklet in the revolutionary card technique series, brilliant effect. Even better in the hands of Roger!!
