The book contains every independent publication from Daniel throughout his 15-year career as a world-renowned Sleight-of-hand artist...Including 21 chapters and over 230 Sleight-of-hand techniques & close-up Deceptions with a deck of playing cards.

This is ANTHOLOGY - The Daniel Madison Collection: 2000 - 2015
ONE was Madison’s first ever independent publication. He originally published this booklet as a set of notes for his first ever Private Lecture, held at the 2005 Blackpool Magic Convention.

It was this very book that gained Madison’s initial audience who through word of mouth, kickstarted his career in the magic industry.


Following the success of ONE, Madison started to work on his follow-up offering. The feedback from ONE showed hm what his new audience wanted from new magic, and so he tailored the follow up notes to them by filling the notes with simple, high-impact tricks.

This book birthed possibly Madison’s greatest effect to date - Angle Zero.


Following the success of ONE and TWO, Madison realised that his passion for magic was in the technique rather than the trick and in the writing more than the lectures.

Madison packed THREE with sleight-of-hand heavy moves and ideas and never lectured to demonstrate the work from the notes. This started a huge trend in ‘non-lecture notes.'



Both FOUR and FIVE were written from the same vein much later in Madison’s career in the magic industry.

Both of these notes reflect Madison’s return to the card table and departure from the magic industry as a magician.

TOAMM was Madison’s first ever joint project, offering some risky and bold tricks and moves alongside his close friend Randall Freeman.

A lot like TWO, with IDENTITY, Madison listened to the industry and his growing audience and used this book to offer more high-impact effects with a deck of cards. He dedicated this book to his creations of ‘trick-decks’ and gimmicks.

Following the huge success of BURN, Madison quickly followed up with another high-impact release - WRATH.

BURN quickly became one of Madison’s most noteworthy publications. He took a single concept from his TWO notes (Blaze) and dedicated an entire work to the idea of causing revelations in the form of burn marks. This book helped push Madison’s reputation and since its original publication has been ripped-off by a few other ‘creative’ magicians.

The DECEPTIONS series were Madison’s monthly offerings. He decided to hone his creative trickery into monthly releases which would each focus on a different plot in magic… Torn and Restored Cards, Sandwich Effects and Deck Switching. Madison stopped at three editions to allow him time to focus on TV magic.

Both PRIMER and PARIAH where written at the start of Madison’s own UK TV show - which he would eventually walk away from. These two ideas reflect a more theatrical approach to trickery, in the way that the method never ever matters, only the outcome of the effect.

M and PSYCHO were both written whilst Madison was consulting for a Mentalism based TV show. His work on the show forced him to create ideas for mentalism and not rust close-up-trickery. OF his favourite creations for the show, he collected his best for these two books.

Aside from ANGLE Z, THE ADVOCATE is without a doubt Madison’s greatest discovery and work. He claims it to be his most proud discovery and tool every because of what it allows the performer to achieve… Any card, Anywhere, Any time, with Anybody.

In 2012 Madison performed on UK TV show FOOL US for PENN & TELLER, and this was his creation… A tribute to legendary second dealer WALTER IRVING SCOTT. Although Madison did not fool P&T, with the help and careful planning from David Britland, Madison never intended to fool them simply because if he did, they would have never given him as much praise as they did for his bold and daring move and flawless execution of ‘that move.'

PLACEBO would become one of Madison’s final independent offerings. He used this book to offer pseudo demonstrations of card-cheating abilities.

    This is one hell of a product. This book contains a wealth of information, and I'm grateful that Daniel decided to share it with us. A bonus is that there are more books introduced to this final big book than the contents listed above.

    In my opinion, I think this book is way too underrated. Yes, I agree adding page numbers on each page would help, but it's not that big of a deal. The sections are already separated, each with the page number listed on the page. I have no issues with the quality, printing and the typos of the book, I even consider the book well assembled judging from the condition when I received it (brand new, nothing I could complain about,) to the condition of the book now after I've broken into it and started reading.

    Thank you, Daniel, for releasing this book. Despite some very minor publishing mistakes, it doesn't really matter because the things that should matter: the content, explanations and information are 100% spot on. Get this book. Period.

    The content in this book is amazing, DM delivered 110% on that as he always does. However whoever put the book together did a poor job, the printing is bad and looks cheap and pixelated, and the pictures are black and white. Also there is no page numbers. I love DM here, but it reminds me of a freshman stealing a senior's beautiful Final project and quickly printing it off the library's black and white only printer.

    In this book is SOOOOOO MUCH to learn, that it will take me really long time to do it. Not disappointed at all, great book.
    The only thing is that the font is somehow very small so some picture, making it sort of difficoult to reat and understand the hand positions. I think that the small font is used cause otherwise the book will be a 1200 pages tome.
