The perfect gateway into the world of pickpocketing. Vanishing Inc. and Héctor Mancha explore a far-too-often overlooked skill in The Wonderous World Of Pickpocketing.
Learning to pickpocket is something that may intimidate many magicians. Luckily, there is a way to build up your confidence without ever needing to really steal anything. In this incredible book, FISM-winner Hector Mancha introduces you to the art of theatrical pickpocketing.
This concept has been used by some of the best magicians that ever lived from Alexander Herrmann to Blackstone, Paul Daniels, Derren Brown, Tommy Wonder, Darwin Ortiz, and others. Yet, there really haven’t ever been many resources on it before-especially ones that focus on presenting it as a magical act.
That is why Vanishing Inc. is so excited to partner with Hector Mancha to bring you The Wonderous World Of Pickpocketing. Whether you’re a beginner magician or a seasoned pro, everyone can benefit from this entry guide to the world of theatrical pickpocketing.
There are definitely real pickpocketing skills in here. You’ll learn how to steal watches, belts, ties, glasses, etc. This includes specially-designed practice drills and routines. But, the true value comes from the ***pseudo-pickpocketing*** techniques you’ll learn.
Through a variety of audience-proven routines, Hector will show you how to convince your audience that you are a master thief without you actually need to be one. Along the way, you’ll build up the confidence you need to work toward stealing stuff for real.
Within the routines, you’ll find there is room to add in real steals if you’d like. But, most of them don’t require any at all.
There has never been an all-in-one resource quite like The Wonderous World Of Pickpocketing. As you’ve come to expect from Vanishing Inc., a 113-page hardcover book is of exceptional quality and is beautifully laid out with gorgeous illustrations. Hector also makes learning fun as his writing style is both insightful and funny.
Whether you’re looking to elevate your stage or parlor act, or just want to add an unusual and exciting skill to your arsenal, *The Wonderous World Of Pickpocketing is a worthy addition to any magic library.

Als je geen kennis hebt van theatrical pickpocketing ga je in dit boek wellicht net niet genoeg techniek terugvinden. Let wel, er wordt zeker een basis omschreven.
Maar daarin ga je niet de echte waarde van dit boek vinden. Het beantwoord vooral de vraag: ‘en nu dan?’. Hoe ga je als performer praktisch aan de gang met het zakkenrollen in je optreden? Daar zit de echte meerwaarde van deze publicatie. Er worden zeer praktische routines aangedragen die je hier heel hard mee kunnen opweghelpen.
