This is a wonderful collection of some of Charlie Miller's
signature pieces with photos showing Charlie Miller performing the moves and routines.
From the introduction by Theo Bamberg (Okito):
I consider Charlie's technique not only original, subtle and entertaining, but above all, highly commercial. In this respect, he is in the tradition of the Old Masters, whose skill could be appreciated by the connoisseur, but who used that skill to keep their audiences highly entertained.

Hats are back in fashion... Mugs and Hats inspired the great Bob Read; and yet is totally different from Read’s work - and an absolute blast. If you know Read, there’s no need to add anything; if you do not know Read, you are in for a treat.
