Mr. Roger Crosthwaite belongs to the no-flourish school, of card magic. His special enthusiasm is reserved for sleights that are executed under cover of a natural handling of the deck. He believes, with LePaul, that simplicity is the keynote of good card magic. Some card tricks baffle by their complexity. Others, and some of these you will find in Arcadia, create wonder by their simplicity!
"Just finished reading Roger Crosthwaithe's new book, Arcadia. It's the kind of book cardmen love to read - lots of details, the kind of details that take a good trick and make it into a great one. I thought Roger's Upjog Switch to be an extremely strong utility item that will have many applications. This one move alone would be worth the price of this book"

"After reading Rodger's Arcadia, my natural inclination was to reach for my deck or cards and start practicing. I think that anyone in any way interested in card magic will want to do the same.This book eptimoises the spirit that has pushed the frontiers of quality magic to great heights during my lifetime; it contains some of the very best in card magic today. I give Arcadia my highest and most enthusiastic recommendation!"
