Paul Curry's World's Beyond is finally, finally, finally back in print. For years this compilation of the best material from the legendary Paul Curry has been impossible to track down. Now it's available again, and at an affordable price.
You probably know and use Paul Curry's most famous creation: "Out of This World." Often considered the greatest card trick of the 20th Century, World's Beyond has an in-depth examination of this plot with new tips and strategies for this classic.
But where this 400-page, hardbound treasure-trove really comes to life is in the less celebrated material. Paul Curry's "Sliding Knot," "Color-Changing Deck," "IOU," and "Power of Thought" are all routines that are classic-level genius, and ready to be added to your next parlor show. There's also Paul's original handling of "Open Prediction" and his Turnover Change, which will be of particular interest to the card enthusiasts.
"Paul Curry saw magic through a private window that afforded his own unique perspective. To be a student of magic, one must study Curry." David Regal
"He could have stopped after inventing Out of this World in 1942 and guaranteed that literally all magicians from that point forward and for the rest of time would use his creation in their repertoires. Instead, this collection of classic Curry recipes shows that he was just getting warmed up. The greedy, keep-it-to-myself part of me is sorry this collection of pragmatic brilliance is being reprinted." Steve Beam
"I love to search through Magic books. I always find gems that somehow have been overlooked by others. Paul Curry’s World's Beyond is filled with loads of those rare sparklers. Not only great concepts but wonderful frameworks of presentation are within this book’s pages. Do you want to expand your repertoire? Here is a great place to search for treasure!" Paul Green
"Paul Curry belongs to that rare breed of "Inspired Amateurs" who has done more for magic than most professionals. In this book you’ll find out why. It has my highest recommendation." Roberto Giobbi
"I must confess that I was more than a little annoyed when Paul Curry’s World’s Beyond was published originally. I had spent several decades assembling the secrets in it that had only been published previously in small pamphlets and equally small runs. While time may have softened my edge towards coveting secrets, it has only elevated my respect for the words and wizardry of Paul Curry. I am thrilled that a new generation – and audiences – will now have the opportunity of experiencing the work of a creative giant of twentieth century magic." David Ben
