Who is Tom Elderfield?
If you've seen magic on TV or social media in the last 5 years, you've almost definitely seen Tom Elderfield's influence. His client list is a who's who of TV magic, top brands, and social media giants.
His magic industry releases are celebrated as visual miracles and twice, in our own experience, he's created Ellusionist best-sellers and allowed other artists to carry them over the finish line.
Case and point, Tom creates more magic than he can pursue himself.
But How Does He Do It?
This book isn't about what Tom is... It's about what Tom does, and how YOU CAN DO IT TOO.
In this book you will:
- Learn Tom's secret chameleon technique for creating magic.
- Discover the power of failing to create new methods.
- Uncover original ideas with the power of 'switching'.
- Flip the script and explore Tom's simpler, method first approach.
- Create magic from nothing using elaborate Venn Diagrams.
- Find out exactly how Tom solves problems to create new effects while consulting... and how you can too.
+ SO MUCH MORE.
"But I find it hard to learn from just reading." says You.
No problem. This is a book for doers. Not readers.
❌ This isn't a boring book on the theory of creating magic.
❌ It isn't a book about what Tom can do, that others can't.
❌ It isn't designed to collect dust on your shelf.
✅ It's a book of activities to help you create magic AS you read it.
Each page minimizes words and maximizes fun. You'll be doing activities and playing games as you go, so the lessons sink in easier... Instead of just reading about it.
A message from Tom himself...
"I always get asked how I create magic tricks.
In this book, I've designed fun games and activities, some based on everyday games you may already play. I've made them more specific to a way of thinking about magic.
This can be as simple as; ‘fill this box with the last thing you had in your pocket’. You then follow the game along til hopefully, you have an interesting idea for an effect or a new method.
There are many fun games to play, and not every single one will be perfect, but hopefully, you’ll find YOUR ‘game' and will come up with something amazing!
There will also be some more unorthodox methods that will quite literally ask you to start destroying this book. Go along with it, all our minds work in different ways, and you may amaze yourself."
