Chan Canasta: A Remarkable Man Volume 1 by David Britland

Chan Canasta (1920 to 1999) was something of a TV sensation in the 1950s as one of Britain's leading mentalists. His blend of psychology and traditional conjuring which he called psychmagic, was a breath of fresh air. This beautifully produced hardback book is a unique record of his mentalist effects and unique entertaining style.

"Martin has excelled himself with the production values. It looks beautiful; maybe it is the most attractive looking book I have ever seen. If you are interested in Canasta then you will have to buy the book." - Peter Zenner

"I'm not sure that there have been other books quite like this. You know those reviews you read which say of novels, 'I couldn't put it down 'til I'd read it through from cover to cover'? Well, I'll cheerfully admit to devouring this volume at one sitting until well into the early hours; it's a comparative rarity in contemporary magic publishing: a rattling good read." - Bob Gill

"It is superbly produced. The binding and cover are absolute dynamite. Thank you for such a good work. It is a delight to receive a product that lives up to its promise and delivers value!" - Sal Franchino
