A FISM-winners lifetime of work compiled into one unbelievable book from Vanishing Inc.

Jean-Pierre Vallarino is one of the most talented magicians to ever live. Throughout his decades-long career, he has continually created some of the most poetic and entertaining magic our community has ever seen. Yet, some magicians may not instantly recognize his name because there has never been a true compilation of his greatest works. That all changes now!

Vanishing Inc. has partnered with one of magic's most respected writers, John Lovick, to help cement the legacy of this legendary magician with Vallarino - a lavish, gorgeous, oversized, hardback book featuring 320 pages of truly remarkable close-up magic.

Rarely has one book contained such a strong and vast collection of practical and powerful material. No stone was left unturned. This includes, for the first time, Vallarino sharing the innermost secrets to his award-winning FISM act.

In total, you'll enjoy more than 60 routines that have been performed for audiences around the world. He shares his most extensive work on classic plots from Sandwich Routines to Collector's, Ace Assemblies, and everything in between. From card magic to coin magic, there is something for everyone in Vallarino.

There are also 25 original sleights featured in Vallarino. From the proper handling for his Rumba Count to unique and practical palming techniques, a comprehensive look at his legendary tabled shuffle work, and more, this is a real treat for anyone who loves innovative sleight-of-hand moves.

With Vallarino, Vanishing Inc. continues to further the gold standard for magic books. This is their most extravagantly-photographed book ever, featuring more than 2,000 photographs expertly taken by Sophie Duval to accompany the crystal-clear descriptions from John Lovick.

Vallarino offers more visual, amazing, and practical close up magic in one book than ever seen before. It will keep you occupied for years to come and is a book you'll find yourself referencing often.
