Handcrafted Card Magic - Volume 2
conceived, written and illustrated by Denis Behr

The warning, "You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover" is a lie because if a book has Denis Behr's name on the cover you can be sure it is well-written and filled with card magic that will delight your mind, your hands, your heart and your audiences.
Michael Weber

Every entry is worthy of the thoughtful cardician's attention. Looking for a book of card material that will actually deliver satisfying results? You need look no further than this.
Jamy Ian Swiss (Genii Magazine)

I promise, I will come up with a really good quote for Denis' new book, but at the moment I am just too busy performing his material!
Pit Hartling

Denis Behr doesn't take himself too seriously, but he does take card magic seriously. In his latest literary effort, Handcrafted Card Magic 2, you can read for yourselves why Denis has to be considered a serious author, for what he writes is interesting and original, with the added benefit that the interesting things are also original, and the original things interesting.
Roberto Giobbi

It's a short-but-sweet collection of some of the best card magic in recent years. That's not an exaggeration.
Antonio M. Cabral (M-U-M Magazine)

I've examined this material. It is every bit as good as that in its predecessor.
Stephen Minch (Foreword)

Handcrafted Card Magic
conceived, written and illustrated by Denis Behr

This is a book that not only justifies its existence by means of innovative material and original thinking, but which represents the mind of a thoughtful and tasteful creator who pays attention to myriad tiny details that can make all the difference between mediocre magic and beautiful illusions. (...)
This is the way magic books should be written.
Jamy Ian Swiss (Genii Magazine)

Most card books present handlings or better ways of accomplishing things you already do. Handcrafted Card Magic gave me new things to do in already exceptional ways. This is a great book.
Ricky Smith (M-U-M Magazine)

His hands are so large that he can palm playing cards sideways without the fear of detection.
John Lovick (MAGIC Magazine)

There is some fine thought in this material. My favorite pieces are "A Trick for Allen Kennedy" (a surprise, since I'm not usually drawn to gambling effects) and "Oil and Water Finale". However, there is much else to admire.
Stephen Minch

The chapter, however, that I predict will stand-out as one of the most important and influential contributions to the study of stacked-deck magic is "Finding The Way Home".
