Studying a classic by Harry Lorayne

My name is Anders Møller and I’m a Danish magician, who has been performing for the last 10 years. I am interested in most branches of magic, but my biggest passion lies in close-up magic – more specifically card magic. I absolutely love sitting with a deck of cards, and I enjoy developing new card magic effects aswell as refining exisiting ones.

I will try to update this blog once or twice every week with a new trick, an idea or an essay on magic in general. if you have some tricks that you would like me to put on the blog, I would be thrilled to hear from you. You can drop me an email on abm@anders-magic.dk.

Best,

Anders Møller
