Carmel, CA: Kard King Studios, Sep-45. A trade catalogue about the "art" of card magic. Published by Kard King Studios, a magic shop that specializes in magic done with a deck of cards. The catalogue itself is a single fold blue heavy stock cover, with four legal size pages attached onto the interior with staples. These pages are then folded so that the catalogue is flat. These interior pages list each item currently in stock at Kard King Studios along with a short explanation of the item and the magic trick. There are approximately forty-five (45) items on the list, such as the X-Ray deck (, Miracle Card Trick, Sterlings Walking Card, and the New Queens Mystery. The catalogue is careful to explain the magic trick each item performs without telling the reader how to perform the magic trick itself. The reader would need to purchase the item to receive detailed instructions. For example, for an item called 'The Haunted Desk', the catalogue provides the following instructions: "The performer has three different spectators select and replace three different cards and replace them in three seperate [sic] positions in the deck. The performer then places the deck on his outstretched palm of his Hand. IN a mysterious and haunted fashion the deck begins to move first sideways then backwards to its original position but a card has been left protruding on each side. Again the deck moves forward and then backwards, leaving a card protruding in front. The spectators are asked to remove the protruding cards and they are found to be the previously selected cards. Complete, ready to work, full instructions. Price..... $1.00" The front cover states "This is a copy, No. 112". Measures 9 1/4" x 5 1/4" (folded catalogue), 14" x 8 1/2" (unfolded interior pages).
