A commercial, professional routine that breathes new life into one of the most beloved plots in magic. Nearly 18 minutes of show-stopping material with just a deck of cards and a marker.

After bursting onto the scene with his bestselling book Stage by Stage, John Graham has once again partnered with Vanishing Inc. to bring you one of his all-time favorite routines. After performing and refining his Multiple Selection act in front of real audiences for decades, he's finally ready to share it with you!

Encore is a totally new approach to Multiple Selection that breaks the mould on its typically linear structure. It does not follow the typical presentation in which cards are simply selected, lost in the deck, and then found again. This amazing routine is cyclical in nature. It masterfully integrates the concept of repeated revelations, adding extra layers of astonishment and intrigue with each phase.

As each subsequent card is found, you also re-find the past revelations in unique ways. For example, when you find the third card, you also shock them by finding the first and second cards again as well. Each callback is surprising and provides a reason for the audience to stay engaged throughout the entire routine.

Encore combines seven unique effects into one elegant act. It is modular, so you could stop anywhere and still have a powerhouse routine. What makes Encore so special though is the level of thought and detail put into the routining. Every single moment blends seamlessly together to provide exciting new twists that reinforce the overall theme.

To help you get the most value out of this routine, Encore is offered as a beautiful, 35-page hardback book instead of an instant download. Clear descriptions and illustrations allow you to go at your own pace and fully embrace all the tips and intricacies honed over 100s of performances.

John has spent dedicates exploring and polishing this plot. He's made all the mistakes so you don't have to. Grab Encore today to learn a professional Multiple Selection routine that will amaze every audience!

It's really an act, not just a trick or even a routine. It's all high impact with nothing wasted or extra, except maybe for that H in his first name."
- Jon Armstrong
