Derek Lever & Jack Hughes
Jack Hughes World of Magic Volume 1 by Derek Lever & Jack Hughes

Jack Hughes was a master builder and craftsman who created and built props for some of the biggest names in magic for decades. Most of the items he built were his own inventions. The few that were not he most often improved significantly.

Every item is carefully described in terms of its effect, apparatus, and performance. Nevertheless, the emphasis is on the prop with detailed drawings and dimensions to allow anybody handy to replicate these wonderful magic tricks. (The drawings are not blue-print type construction drawings, but rather sketches and illustrations with the main dimensions...

Guy Jarrett
Magic and Stage Craft by Guy Jarrett

This is one of the most important books on stage illusions. Many experts consider it among the best 10 illusion books ever published - some even have it in their top three. Besides describing a list of startling illusions Guy Jarrett mixes in stories about show business and there in particular his opinion about some of the big names in magic. Particular Howard Thurston receives a lashing from Jarrett. This book has a refreshing honesty and directness that is missing from most other magic books. Jarrett even describes a few card effects and other parlor tricks he has performed.

Devin Knight & Al Mann
Al Mann's Sensational Boiler Escape: A Psychic Dematerialization by Devin Knight & Al Mann

A rare insight into Al Mann's least-known manuscript, The Sensational Boiler Escape. In 1987, Mann revised this effect and sold the exclusive rights to Devin Knight as a unique demonstration of psychic powers to be used on a TV show. The effect was as follows:

The performer is visibly locked into an examined metal boiler, which is then filled with boiling water! The performer claims he will be able to survive the scalding waters because of his psychic powers. The level of the water is seen rising on the indicators and the temperature is recorded on the boiler's thermometer.

Paolo Maria Jacobazzi
360 Degree by Paolo Maria Jacobazzi

You are probably familiar with the "Head Twister" act. This can be presented to the audience in a serious or comic way, however, it has always been done with obsolete objects such as boxes with knobs, boxes with oriental designs, sequins, and so on. Paolo thought to use a modern object: a motor-cycle helmet! It is a common object of everyday use!

The conjuror or his assistant sits and puts on the helmet and from this moment the magic begins. The helmet and person's head, which is visible, is rotated 360° various times. At the end of this demonstration the assistant stands, the conjuror blocks...

Mike Danata
Floating Golden Stick by Mike Danata

A golden stick floats in the air without any means of support. A hoop is passed across and around the stick yet it still floats until finally at the command of the magician it travels away from him, at least six feet, and gently comes to rest upon a table.

This effect can be performed in a large drawing room or whilst completely surrounded. It is a one man floating effect and no assistants are required. It should not be confused with the Finn Jon Floating Stick which uses an entirely different method. With this routine the stick actually floats away from the magician and if performed on a...
