Dan Harlan Lecture
Dan Harlan is probably best known for Cardtoon, a trick which he released to the magic community back in 1991.
Sure, before that there were murmurings in certain circles of magic about a young guy from Ohio who was doing remarkable things with rubber bands.
And certainly he has become well known and respected for the seemingly endless stream of ingenious and innovative magic he's released in the twenty years
that have passed since that little stick figure magician strolled out across the back of a deck of cards to reveal the identity of the previously selected pasteboard.
The Minotaur, a quarterly magazine which he co-edited with Marv Leventhal, ran for 8 years (1988 1996) and introduced some of the finest close-up magic
from some of the finest close-up magicians of the day. His extensive catalogue of DVDs runs the gamut of topics, ranging from close-up and rubber band magic,
to stage, mentalism, bar bets, cards, coins, birthday shows, etcHis recent commercial releases include Stash, Vortex, and Ritual, as well as Speakeasy,
a brilliant, yet simple, two-person code.
Mr. Harlan will be visiting us in April to lecture, and share some of his latest creations. Known for his "Packs Small, Plays Big" performance style,
he is truly a magician whose lecture will offer something for everyone.
