Farewell Performance by Punx & Bill Palmer MIMC
This product is also part of:

"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. Some of the routines have only partial explanations. This is because most of this material consists only of presentations, many of them for standard tricks. There is also much material on the theory of magical performance.

(Translated from the German by Bill Palmer.)
