Something Borrowed Something New by Paul Curry

Back at long last is this masterpiece of close-up work featuring cards, coins and mental effects. The genius of Paul Curry lives on in this newly expanded edition. The privately printed first edition is now a prized collector's item. When one does come up for sale, it fetches a high price.
