Peter Prevos
The Box Goes-In-Da Box by Peter Prevos

A treatise on the Gozinta Boxes

The Box Goes-In-Da Box. A treatise on the Gozinta Boxes. Magicians have been captivated by the Gozinta Box since it was first introduced to the magic world by Lubor Fiedler in 1970. The essence of the gozinta plot in magic is that an object fits into itself - a topological anomaly.

The word gozinta (also spelt 'gazinta') is a form of eye dialect, just like words such as fella for fellow or helluva instead of "hell of a". The word gozinta was introduced by primary school teachers to explain long division using the gozinta method: 2 gozinta 4, 3 gozinta 6 and so on. ...

Lecture notes with great advice and eight wonderful routines by master entertainer Aldo Colombini.

  • You are the only one who knows!
  • Seventh Floor: Seven cards are selected. One card is signed by the spectator and then all seven cards are lost in the deck. One by one, they are found by the performer. The signed card re-appears and then finally, it is found inside the pocket.
  • Ace-mbly: You perform a Matrix effect with the Aces and four coins. The first time the coins gather under one Ace. The second time the coins do not move, but the pips of the cards do: Three Aces become blank and the fourth...

Aldo Colombini
The Close-Up Magic of Aldo Colombini by Aldo Colombini

Ever since Obie O'Brien brought Aldo Colombini to the FFFF convention many years ago, it has been a love affair between Aldo and magic in America. While Aldo can do some of the hardest moves, he has developed a unique style of strong magic with little sleight-of-hand. The kind that is entertaining to watch and fun to perform. None of the material is hard to do, yet will fool any audience, including those hard to please magicians themselves.

It is hard to miss Aldo, both in person (6' 5"), and in magic, because he has written for many magazines, performed and lectured throughout the world...

J. F. Orrin
The Conjurer's Vade-Mecum by J. F. Orrin

From the foreword by Will Goldston:

Although in writing this book, the author's thought has been mainly for the beginner, I feel confident that advanced magicians will find a good deal of very useful material in "THE CONJURER'S VADE MECUM." Mr. Orrin writes clearly and concisely, and in doing so draws upon a store of knowledge acquired by practical experience. He gives many a useful little hint as to the choice of tricks for different occasions, and in describing each trick he comes straight to the point and explains, first the effect and then the method of working, and finally adds suggestions for...

The Creation of Magic by Peter Wilker

A practical guide to the invention of tricks plus newly created tricks.

"I must say that I was prepared to dislike this book ... Wilker's discussion, however, is so pleasant and unassuming that one can hardly disagree with him. In part, this is because Wilker seems to recognize the inherent problems in stating hard and fast rules about creativity and so limits his conclusions accordingly." - Stephen Hobbs

Lewis Ganson & Dai Vernon
The Dai Vernon Book of Magic by Lewis Ganson & Dai Vernon

I was lucky that I stumbled across this book very early on in my magic development. It had a huge impact on how I approached magic and how I think today about magic. The introductory chapter "The Vernon Touch" should be mandatory reading for every magician. I would go so far as to recommend re-reading it every year. Martin Breese wrote: "One of the most important books of magic ever written." Max Holden said: "I consider Vernon the greatest man with a pack of cards of the present day." Many consider Dai Vernon, the professor, as one who had probably the biggest impact on magic in recent times. ...

Further, interviews with convicted witches, excerpts from inquisition, astrology, alchemy, charms, the names of demons, angels and other "words of power", spells, rituals, sabbats, biblical and Egyptian magic, and more.

The First Edition is one of the most sought after magic books and is now available in its Second Edition, which incorporates additions and corrections from Kaplan's own notes, as well as adds more than 25% new and...
