Author(s): Hartman, J.K.
Media: Books
Format: Hardbound
Publication Summary: 2010, 85 pgs

Beginning with the now out-of-print and much sought-after Card Craft, the release of each new book from J.K. Hartman has been welcomed by discerning card handlers the world over for his direct effects and deviously simple handlings. Now, spurred by an underground handling by Tomas Blomberg and a yearlong correspondence with Gordon Bean, Mr. Hartman has turned his attention to a single plot: the fabled Any Card at Any Number.

The eight routines in CAAN Craft-clearly described by Mr. Hartman and ably illustrated by Tony Dunn-are already being hailed as a bravura display of creativity, and the many new moves, maneuvers, and strategies revealed in its pages will undoubtedly inspire myriad variations. Each entry adheres strictly to the condition that a card is merely named rather than physically selected, and none requires advanced sleight of hand or special decks.

"I have always found Hartman's material to be interesting and thought-provoking, and I am pleased to say that in CAAN Craft he maintains his usual high standard, offering some quirky and devious ways to place a card, or cards, at any number. If you are a card worker, you should have it on your bookshelf."
- Peter Duffie, MAGIC (Lead review, 11/10)

In addition, CAAN KICKER, one of the strongest of the routines, features a novel silk-screened card that accompanies the book.

These are not keyboard pipedreams. Each boasts a complete, effective script and each has been fully tested before lay audiences in both casual and formal performances, leaving every nuance polished to a high gleam.

"...those who like to have doors opened to further thinking will find much to enjoy in CAAN Craft, from Hartman's innovative use of sleights and subtleties to the novel dressings he has created for this popular plot."
- David Britland, Genii (Lead review, 10/10)

The enduring appeal of the ACAAN plot lies in its simple yet incredible premise - one that is likely to be retold long after a performance. Let the commercial and practical routines contained within the elegant, hardbound pages of CAAN Craft help create some legends of your own.
