Spotlight: By Forces Unseen - Ernest Earick

This is something I've wanted to do for a while now: highlight a product that I personally have found fascinating, but many people have probably never realized how amazing it really is.

In this case, it's the book 'By Forces Unseen.' I remember seeing an effect from this book many years ago, and finding it hard to believe that it wasn't REAL MAGIC. "How on earth could someone do this with sleight of hand," I remember thinking!

Here is a great video performed by the talented Charles Hsu, which highlights the majority of effects and sleights taught in this book. Thanks to Charles for filming this and making it part of the magic community. You can check out his YouTube channel at
