The Wednesday Word - prestidigitation

Best Blogger Tips

Wednesday 26 August 2009

Today's Wednesday word is prestidigitation. It means a sleight of hand, or basically the skills that magicians have that enable them to do card and coin tricks.

Here is a quote for it:

He was the man who had sat alone in a room for hundreds and hundreds of hours, his fingers manipulating cards and coins until he had learned and could perfectly reproduce every form of prestidigitation found in books of magic lore.
-- Brian Moore, The Magician's Wife
