Customer reviews for The Aretalogy of Vanni Bossi
This book can’t miss in your collection if you want to know a few secrets to even fool magicians! Some effects are difficult to accomplish but interesting in their methods, so definetely a worthy book to have. Many details to add to your existing repertoire also. The quality of the book is simply excellent and the edged pages make it beautiful.
Beautiful book. Some simple and some harder tricks. Bought it just because it looks so amazing on my shelf.
High quality printing!
