Farewell Performance by Punx & Bill Palmer MIMC
"Your wonderful book is entertaining, informative and inspiring. It is written in the humorous, intellectual style that is so uniquely yours ... You will live on in the history of Magic - forever." - Siegfried and Roy
These routines are taken from Punx's full evening show. This material is not only audience-tested, it is the material that one of the greatest magicians of the twentieth century used to earn a living. It is not a book for beginners.

Magical Adventures and Fairy Tales by Punx & Bill Palmer MIMC
"This book is going to be a classic. Punx takes the simplest of effects and weaves an 'entertainment factor' about them that makes it a delight to read and easy to perform. His artistry blends magic and fantasy. A true example of making magic - magick!" - Masklyn ye Mage
Punx was the acknowledged master of 'Magic as Theater', actually the creator, where the performance takes center stage and method only serves the role to support and enable the performance. There are wonderful stories, excellent tips on tricks and handling, and deep insights into the Art of Performing Magic.
