The Essential Stewart James

The Essential Stewart James - magic

Along with Ed Marlo, Dai Vernon and Karl Fulves, Canadian Stewart James was one of the most prolific magic inventors of magic in the twentieth century. He created over one thousand tricks, which saw print in two mammoth publications spanning over 2,700 pages.

We're here to tell you that unless you're a complete magic nut, don't buy those publications. I am an incredibly passionate magic reader and still haven't managed to even get half way through these weighty tomes. So, instead of dropping a few hundred dollars to buy books that you'll never swallow, we suggest that you pick up this book; The Essential Stewart James, which covers 50 of James' best tricks.

Allan Slaight, co-editor of Stewart James In Print and author of "The James File" worked with a panel of James fans (including Max Maven, Michael Weber, Roy Walton, Peter Duffie and more) to choose their fifty favorite Stewart James tricks. Those who know Stewart James' work agree that they picked out the real treasures. The Essential Stewart James serves as a primer to the brilliance of the man, his methods and his magic and all in a form that you'll be able to easily swallow.
