Vanishing Inc. Magic publishes many books—more, in fact, than any other magic publisher today—and we’re proud of all of our titles. But Preserving Mystery is an important book, one that will be studied and discussed long after most books fade into the periphery. We are exceedingly proud of this collection of essays by the inimitable Jamy Ian Swiss.

For the collectors, Vanishing Inc. has produced a stunning deluxe set of books called "The Works - Deluxe Collection" that also includes a fourth volume NOT AVAILABLE SEPARATELY. The fourth book, Light and Heat collects the very best of Swiss's book reviews from his heralded Genii column. This special volume is comprised of pieces Jamy and friends handpicked from almost twenty years of informative reviews. You can only obtain Light and Heat by purchasing "The Works" deluxe set.

The Works deluxe set contains:
Shattering Illusions
Devious Standards
Preserving Mystery
Light and Heat

All titles are individually signed and numbered by Jamy Ian Swiss on custom bookplates. The books are bound with a polished, leatherette finish and include a gorgeous matte black slipcase embellished with gold foil stamping.

Only 250 sets will be produced. Once they are sold out, they will never be available again.


Customer reviews for The Works - Deluxe Collection






Okay, so I'm a newbie to magic, and I now have a shelf of magic books, technical mostly, about two feet long. But I also really enjoy reading about the *world* of magic, the thought and theory, so I waffled about getting this set. I mean, it's a lotta money.

However, I have to say I am really enjoying them. Swiss is a really thoughtful guy. His insights are, for the most part, dead on, and he puts them out there with a really wicked sense of humor.

In addition, as you might gather from the description, this is a really beautiful set of books. For me, it is important that the sensual part of reading, the binding, the paper, the print, is esthetically pleasing. That's a major reason I'm so disappointed that Hermes Press got folded up. These books are as nice as anything I have on my shelves. Glad I talked myself into it...
