The Sphinx Index is a 540 page PDF, indexing all 52 volumes of The Sphinx magazine. Three people worked for hundreds of hours to collect and categorize this information. It has more than 14,000 entries. The index covers all tricks, effects and articles, but does not include assembly reports and other short trip reports or news items. An interesting category is Portraits & Photos where all photos are indexed by the name of the person shown in the photo. This makes it easy to find image information about hundreds of magicians.
