For three decades the Designer Magic Workshops built major illusions and apparatus for world star magicians, prestige theatre productions and television series. This book presents 24 selected plans with additional techniques and building know-how included. Over 300 clear schematic drawing.

Designed Illusions and Design Delusions comprises three parts:

The Designerplans
From David Hemingway's Designer Magic, leading illusion builders and designers for decades with long experience as magical consultants to theatre, TV and films; come the only workshop plans available anywhere featuring the unique layout and working instruction of the Designerplan Concept, not found in any other published material; providing every detail necessary to enable actual successful practical construction to be within the grasp of the non-expert.

The Sketchplans
Illusionsand illusionettes each one with a new concept or new angle on previous existing ideas. Each contains something new, either the working, the effect, the presentation, the design, the basics, the decor or some other aspect that is given a new look originating from David's 35 years' experience working alongside top magicial, and other, star performers and technicians. Here is workable programme material suitable for television, floorshow, stage work, cruising and even pantomime. Nothing is held back: the conceptions go from method to performing suggestions.

The Bonus
A re-edited version of The Prop-Builder's Notebook: a primer descibing the Designer Magic approach to making props. The know-how and 'info' enables you to design, build and decorate your own props. Notes on design, string, measuring, selecting materials, the correct tools, appropriate fastenings, construction, assembly and finishing decor. Workshop methods, tips, techniques and assorted invaluable experience-learned building advice galore.
