Jim Ryan Close-up Series #1 "Sensational Stunners" 

By Philip Willmarth

These are the close-up routines that made Jim Ryan a magic legend in the magic circles of the 1960s and '70s when he performed in Chicago as a "Bar Magician". If you learn to perform the routines, in all five booklets of the Jim Ryan Close-up Series, you'll go very far in the world of magic and will not need any other material.

Contents Include:

  • James Patrick Ryan: Biography
  • The Bill Tear
  • Jim's Toss-Away, An Easy Variation
  • Ryan's Dunbury Delight
  • Misdirection and Manipulation
  • Warren Stephen's Helicopter Knot
  • Ryan's Rope, Ring and Rod
  • Advice For The Bride and Groom

Comments: The cover photo was taken by Tom Mullica, others by Rick Bamman. Black &White photo illustrated. Mr. Ryan used tapered cups (Ireland style cups) three sponge balls (Goshman brand will work), a carpet close-up pad, 3 load balls, and a purse frame.
