What do Nate Staniforth, the Jerx, Marc Paul, Jon Allen, and Mark Shortland have in common? They all love "Amazebox" and contributed to Amazebook!

Our most popular effect of all time is "Amazebox." And now we're pleased to bring you an ebook dedicated to the very best ways to use it.

If you own Amazebox, you NEED this book. It will open your eyes to how some of the best magicians in the world are using the prop.

If you don't yet own Amazebox, Amazebook is a great way to familiarize yourself with the prop and its capabilities.

The best part? It's just $20 and available for IMMEDIATE download.

You'll learn magic by Nate Staniforth, The Jerx, Marc Paul, Jon Allen, and of course, the Amazebox creator Mark Shortland.

In all there are 10 effects (and one stage presentation) described, most suitable for large stages and cruise ships. You'll learn the history of this box and how it was constructed, as well as other ways to integrate it into your show. Plus, you'll learn the one thing that creator Mark Shortland thinks you must NEVER do with the Amazebox.

This fantastic prop is a neo-classic, yet many people remain uncertain how best to use it in their shows. Now, you'll know.

Here is what some of the biggest names in magic have to say about the Amazebox:

"Mark Shortland has created an ingenious and devious solution to an age old problem. Natural looking, hands off in operation and simple to use; this might well be exactly what you are looking for." Luke Jermay
"Amazebox is enormously practical, and is as ingenious as the best Tenyo effects, but built into a stage prop that looks entirely normal" Joshua Jay
"I've never been so excited for a magic utility device in my career! Kyle Marlett
"I’m using AmazeBox in my show. As soon as I saw it I knew that every mentalist and magician could find a use for it in their show too!" Andi Gladwin
"I've performed a Q & A act for over a decade. I've tried so many methods to appear natural and hands free. Bags, boxes, envelopes. This is the most innocent looking method I have ever seen! And completely hands free. I'll take two. When you see something this good, always buy a spare!" Paul Draper
"This is something I would put in my show. Very clever design and practical for working performers. Deceptive and hands-off, what more could you ask for?" Eric Dittelman
"The best gimmicks in magic are the ones who fool you even when you know how they work. When I first saw this I knew what it was and what it did, yet I didn't see it happen! Seemless, elegant and beyond deceptive! Best mentalism gimmick I've seen this year!" Spidey
"This prop is beautifully invisible to the audience. Organic and powerful. I can’t wait to try new magic with AmazeBox!" Justin Flom
"This is one of the most exciting new tools I have seen. It not only is super cool and clever, it's extremely versatile and completely practical. This is something I will use." Dan White

Customer reviews for Amazebook



I bought this today for two main reasons: Luke Jermay (whose work and ideas have always impressed me) recommended it and also because I was bored during lockdown I am glad I did. I enjoyed the humor in it (for example, the Dai Vernon reference at the end). The part I enjoyed most, however, was Mark’s account at the beginning of how he came to create the AmazeBox. I have seen Mark several times at The Session but never spoken with him, but his personality came through in this short book and I liked that. To me, the experience of reading this was well worth £18.
