Last update: Oct 2021: Rene Levand's Close Up Artistry Volume 5 DVD
2021 June: Added Ed Marlo's Card to Wallet book
Cleaned up June 2019

The following is a partial list of books, videos/DVDs, and products relating to Magic Wallets, such as the Himber or other switching wallets and the Card to Wallet effect (see the Card to Wallet Article linked above for more information on wallet types). Most of these references should be available today, although some listings are 'historical' so it is possible that some references might only be found in "used" magic book stores. This is far from a thorough coverage.

If a title or products name is "clickable", that means there is an entry for the book, video, or product in the "contents" listing area and you can select the title for more detailed information. Use your BACK button to get back to this page.

Note: Selecting a suitable wallet for the Card to Wallet effect is not easy these days. A search on Google and e-Bay will turn up a ton of wallets available, and most of them are not very descriptive except to say the selected card winds up in the wallet. Even this guide won't help much in differentiating between the wallets for two reasons: 1) detailing the descriptions of the wallets reveals the "secret", and I try to avoid that on this site; and 2) I don't know the details of all the different wallets anyway! If you can narrow down your choices, then perhaps you can check the on-line Magic bulletin boards for particular advice.

Note: An early version of this list can still be found at:, which was posted back in 1998 courtesy of the site owner ( Also, NONE of these items are for sale from this site. Prices shown are estimates only and are likely out-of-date.
