Hugard's Magic Monthly consists of almost 2500 pages in 21 volumes and is packed with contributions from the finest artists and thinkers magic has to offer. People like Victor Farelli, Ted Annemann, Martin Gardner, Harry Lorayne, Milbourne Christopher, Ross Bertram, George Kaplan, Cliff Green, Fred Braue and Hugard himself. The subtitle says it all 'Devoted solely to the interests of magic and magicians'.
Jean Hugard and Fred Braue wrote some of the most read magic books in magic history, such as The Royal Road to Card Magic and Expert Card Technique. A good part of Martin Gardner's Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic Tricks can be found in Hugard's Magic Monthly. It featured book reviews by John J. Crimmins Jr., and the famous Frank Joglar column which was authored by Milbourne Christopher.
You will get a data DVDROM with six PDF files, one of which is a collection of all 21 original volume indices. The entire text of this ebook can be searched. Other magazines have more pages. But rarely does one find so many marvellous effects so close next to each other. It is a joy reading Hugard's Magic Monthly.
