Magic Books

Magic books are our favorite thing about magic. We believe magic books are the best way to learn magic, for many reasons. Most of you which you'll know. When you have to read the text and imagine what is happening, it leads to you creating your own way of doing something, rather than just aping something on a video. The time invested in learning from a book will pay off in spades.

We believe so strongly in magic books, that we publish many ourselves every year. From our smash hit Principia by Harapan Ong to essential reading like Scripting Magic, we've got something for everyone here. Books on card magic, coin magic, magic theory, magic history, mentalism and everything else in-between.
