Note About Vanishing Inc.’s Rare Magic Book Collection: These rare magic books have been acquired by Vanishing Inc. from Louis Falanga (of L&L Publishing)’s personal collection.

About the Book
Michael Skinner was a walking, talking encyclopedia of magic. He was a supremely talented performer with a working knowledge of an impressive amount of amazing tricks and routines. Classic Sampler is the largest collection of Michael Skinner’s powerful brand of close-up magic. Don't be fooled by the slim 85 pages of this gorgeous hardcover book. It is packed to the brim with a choice selection of the most outstanding material from his extensive repertoire.
Classic Sampler showcases Michael’s elegant approach to sleight-of-hand with cards, coins, etc. It contains more than two dozen time-tested, crowd-pleasing, reputation-making tricks. Each one is meticulously described by the man who used them to build a legendary career that included serving as resident magician at the Golden Nugget casino in Las Vegas for more than two decades, earning the coveted "Close-Up Magician of the Year" award from the Magic Castle and appearing twice on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson.
