Animated Miracles book Yigal Mesika
Yigal Mesika is an incredibly talented young magician from Israel. He has created many powerful new effects with the loop. He also found it necessary to improve the quality of the loop and so, for the past seven years,Yigal searched until he found a better way to manufacture the loop. The product you see here can be stretched up to 400% of it's original size and is perfectly suited, in strength and invisibility, for the routines found in this book.Until now there has been very little information available on the loop and that kept the subject relatively unknown and rarely used. The aim of this book is to guide you through the techniques of working with the loop, as well as to give you some applicable routines for stage, close-up and mentalism. Most of the effects were created by Yigal Mesika. The rest of the effects, as indicated, were compiled from the repertories of working magicians, Yigal's friends.
