Al Baker

Al Baker's Second Book by Al BakerFrom the introduction:
In presenting my "second" book to the magical fraternity I have kept in mind the old saw, "Brevity is the soul, not only of wit, but applies to many magical tricks".

I have tried to make the text brief and, by giving plenty of illustrations, cut down on too much solid type. I give no patter as I feel that every entertainer should be himself and develop a style of his own.

Al Baker

Al Baker's Book by Al BakerFrom the introduction:
Showing a trick is comparatively easy to putting it clearly in print, and I want to thank Anneman for his judicious use of the blue pencil, finding spots where I could write less and tell more, and in general, being a marvelous deleter and paraphraser.

To John Northern Hilliard, whom I consider the greatest writer on Magic as an Art, I want to extend my sincere thanks for the encouragement that caused me to start and finally finish my maiden effort, to wit: Al Baker's Book.

Friedrich W. Conradi-Horster

Some More Exquisite Conjuring by Friedrich W. Conradi-HorsterFrom the Foreword:
When publishing my first book in the English language, Exquisite Conjuring, I was led by the thoughts, that perhaps, after having edited over 30 books about Magic in German, it may be an interesting experiment to see, what the English speaking fraternity would have to say, if I would publish a book in the English language and if the praise, I received from all sides as an author of books on Magic since these last 20 years and more, would really warrant such a new venture!

Well, I must say, that my expectations have not only been realised, but they have in fact been surpassed by far in...

Friedrich W. Conradi-Horster

Exquisite Conjuring by Friedrich W. Conradi-HorsterConradi was the largest manufacturer of magic apparatus in Germany in the early 20th century. He wrote and published several major magic books and his magazine Zauberspiegel (Magic Mirror) predates Mahatma, the first American magic magazine. We should not forget that around 1900 Germany was dominating the magic market. Some of the largest magic retailers in the US, such as Roterberg, built their entire business on importing goods from various German manufacturers, such as Conrad-Horster, and then reselling them in the US. Roterberg's most successful book New Era Card Tricks was little more than a translation of effects taken from various...

Dave Arch

The Bonnie and Clyde Melodrama by Dave ArchTransform the classic close-up version of The Thieves and Sheep to an audience-pleasing platform melodrama utilizing those notorious bank robbers of years gone by Bonnie and Clyde. While the audience supplies the sound effects, you can be the narrator (the author's choice) or another member of the audience could read the story as a volunteer from the audience stands behind the table and acts out the story with two paper sacks and some coins (up to silver dollar size for visibility).

The colorful placemats setting on the table in front of your volunteer gives him/her additional prompts - supplementing...

DJ in my Pocket by Christian Lavey

Music control for the solo entertainer

This ebook describes how any solo entertainer can easily build and set up their own music control system. Many entertainers are looking for an easy set up to be their own sound technician. The system can be operated by the push of a button and the button can even be in the performers pocket.

I tried a lot of hardware and software and I think that I found a good working solution. This system is easy to build, reliable, cheaper than some other sound systems and cheaper as hiring a sound technician. The ebook covers all aspects to setup such a system...
