From David Seebach comes this informative book about selecting, obtaining and performing stage illusions. It's a sixty-six page, spiral-bound volume with lots of B&W pictures.

If you enjoyed David's long-running column in Abbott's The New TOPS Magazine then this is absolutely for you. You'll learn which the best illusions are for first-time illusionists. You'll learn about the various builders and why you may not be able to save any money by building an illusion yourself.

You'll read about the Guillotine, Bow Sawing, Chair Suspension, Broom Suspension, Sub Trunk, Zig-Zag, Modern Art, the Doll House, Sword Cabinet, Thin Sawing, Buzz Saw, Hindu Basket, the Aga and Asrah Levitations, the Chests of Mystery, Palanquin, The Modern Cabinet, Tabouret Illusion, Geometrick, The Enchanted Temple, the Temple of Benares and more.

The book also addresses taxes, insurance, assistants, ATA cases, and shipping illusions for performances.

A few controversial topics are covered, too: magical ethics, membership in magic clubs and more.

Interspersed throughout are "Intermission" features that are timely, instructive and ---often--- just funny. We love this book because it is the perfect addition to our other detailed plan and illusion books. David's book gives you, performance notes, Illusion costs, dealing with builders and the inevitable corrections to a prop you must always deal with to make the prop really "yours" on stage. If you want to LEARN about illusions this is the book to have!

Pages: 65 - Softcover - 8.5" x 11" - Black and white photos
