The first card magic book that turns into a video!

The Creative Element is the latest book by Scott Olgard, featuring 19 effects and probably the first magic book ever to make use of augmented reality!

Chapter 1 focuses on effects that can be performed with a borrowed deck, chapter 2 is based around a move called 'The Nowhere Vanish', and chapter 3 focuses on effects that require some work, such as a stacked deck or gimmicks that you can make yourself.
