Breath by Mat Parrott
An Exploration in the Gilbreath Principle
Norman L. Gilbreath first wrote about his discovery of the Gilbreath Principle in 1958. It was a revolutionary concept that had the potential to create a new wave of magic. The ability to hand a deck of cards to a participant, have them shuffle, and still be able to produce miracles was astounding. Especially when it was all self-working, hands-off, and ungimmicked. Unfortunately the magic community never tapped the full potential of this principle, leaving it to be forgotten apart from for the studious
BREATH is an exploration into the power and strength of the Gilbreath Principle. It explains the inner workings on the concept and goes on to describe the method of over 20 different routines. Unlike previous work on the principle, Breath goes beyond playing cards with multiple routines utilising a vast variety of items.
Every routine is self-working, but don’t let simplicity fool you. The ease of methods found in this book help you create a better performance that is often completely hands off.
By the end of this text you will have a greater understanding of the Gilbreath Principle and be able to develop your own routines.
“A must buy text for any magician interested in self-working, high-impact magic”
– Alan Rorrison
“If you like oddities that are self working and happen in the spectator’s hands then definitely check this out. A really interesting look into a really interesting principle.”
– Ben Williams
“This is a great resource for an underused and complex principle that Mat has made simple to understand and given plenty of ideas to boot.”
– David Jonathan
