The Head Consultant to the most-viewed viral video page in the world shares his secrets to creating magic.

Who is Tom Elderfield? 

If you've seen magic on TV or social media in the last 5 years, you've almost definitely seen Tom Elderfield's influence. His client list is a who's who of TV magic, top brands, and social media giants.

His magic industry releases are celebrated as visual miracles and twice, in our own experience, he's created Ellusionist best-sellers and allowed other artists to carry them over the finish line.

Case and point, Tom creates more magic than he can pursue himself.


But How Does He Do It? 

This book isn't about what Tom is... It's about what Tom does, and how YOU CAN DO IT TOO.

In this book you will:

  • Learn Tom's secret chameleon technique for creating magic.
  • Discover the power of failing to create new methods.
  • Uncover original ideas with the power of 'switching'.
  • Flip the script and explore Tom's simpler, method first approach.
  • Create magic from nothing using elaborate Venn Diagrams.
  • Find out exactly how Tom solves problems to create new effects while consulting... and how you can too.


This book will help you create more tricks than it teaches... 

"But I find it hard to learn from just reading." says You. 

No problem. This is a book for doers. Not readers.

❌ This isn't a boring book on the theory of creating magic.

❌ It isn't a book about what Tom can do, that others can't.

❌ It isn't designed to collect dust on your shelf.

✅ It's a book of activities to help you create magic AS you read it.

Each page minimizes words and maximizes fun. You'll be doing activities and playing games as you go, so the lessons sink in easier...  Instead of just reading about it.


A message from Tom himself...

"I always get asked how I create magic tricks.

In this book, I've designed fun games and activities, some based on everyday games you may already play. I've made them more specific to a way of thinking about magic.

This can be as simple as; ‘fill this box with the last thing you had in your pocket’. You then follow the game along til hopefully, you have an interesting idea for an effect or a new method.

There are many fun games to play, and not every single one will be perfect, but hopefully, you’ll find YOUR ‘game' and will come up with something amazing!

There will also be some more unorthodox methods that will quite literally ask you to start destroying this book. Go along with it, all our minds work in different ways, and you may amaze yourself."

"Create Magic" is a Game-Changer!

I had heard through the grapevine about Tom Elderfield… so I trolled him on social media and across the internet and realized: “I need to glean whatever I can from this guy!” I bought the book and after the first few exercises, I was invigorated! In his writing, Tom gives you permission to fail — and yet you never fail because you are having so much fun creating! I also like the fact that, although you will benefit from starting at the beginning and doing the exercises order — you can also open the book at any page and just get started.

I’ve already started developing some new routines using the ideas I was inspired to come up with! I am also revisiting some shelved projects in order to use the creative processes and exercises from the book to see if I can make improvements and add these routines back into my rotation of effects. If you get this book, you will need to USE it. Don’t just put it on the shelf as another “trophy”. If you open it, read it and engage with the pages, you will come away with a unique experience after just a few of the projects.

Create Magic by Tom Elderfield

Create Magic is an important book— a real workbook to stimulate your ideas into workable effects. Well done. Easy read and doesn’t overwhelm. This is a book made to make notes in- plenty of space for that. It is inexpensive and I have not seen anything like this before. Very happy with my purchase.

stop monotony becomes a better performer

Stop the monotony, practice creating and developing not just new tricks, but thinking out of the box. and also the best tool for creating your own style with the tools in your personal toolbox.

Lester Dixon
Create Magic

This is such an amazing book. I can see why he's one of the top consultants for making magic. I would love to shake his hand in person because Tom really has shown me just how easy it can be to be very creative. I came up with an idea of color changing sunglasses but using the material that's used in color changing mood rings just an example of how creative my process is getting thank you Tom.

Magicians create club.

I no longer have to be a performer of magic! Now I can be a creator of magic with this book that I bought!I love the activities inside and I get a dopamine hit of creativity once more aside from performing magic and practicing magic. It’s a great book!
