Rare signed and signed & numbered versions of The Magic Book, Harry Lorayne's seminal text that inspired many magicians to pursue magic, have been uncovered and are now available in extremely limited quantities (note: no slipcase is included). Once these are gone, they will be gone forever.
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. They are in perfect condition and are often the super-rare “publisher editions” where the “numbered versions” may actually be labeled with letters instead of numbers. This varies per book.
About The Book
Harry Lorayne's The Magic Book has often been referred to as "The complete beginner's guide to anytime, anywhere sleight-of-hand magic". It reveals the secrets to famous magic tricks, offering detailed information on how simple techniques and basic sleight of hand can be used to perform seemingly complicated magic tricks with relative ease.
This book guides you through the basic principles of magic using only common household items such as a deck of cards, coins, rubber bands, and even a potato. Each trick is explained by Harry Lorayne with easy to follow step-by-step instructions honed over forty years of audience testing.
To help new magicians develop their techniques, Harry Lorayne provides a special "afterthought" section at the end of each magic trick where he discusses possible problems that most beginners might have. In addition to the practical instruction, Lorayne provides the philosophy of magic as it has never been taught before.
Some of the magic tricks in The Magic Book include:
- Controlling the order of card throughout any number of shuffles
- Finding any card in a deck of cards, shuffling the deck and finding the card again
- Pushing a straw through a potato
- Making knots evaporate
- Making coins pass through a handkerchief
- Predicting numbers than any spectator will give you
- Adding any 5-digit numbers instantly
- And so much more
