Cardini: The Suave Deceiver - magic

Get this! We’ve been able to procure a few copies of the critically acclaimed and highly sought after Cardini Opus! Once these are gone we will NOT be able to reorder. This is a rare chance to own a very important book that will appreciate in value at a very special price.  

This enormous book is beautiful in its appearance and its contents. Appreciate this collectable item in three ways: 

1. It’s a Miracle Factory Book. They spare no expense in production values, and it looks gorgeous. All their books are small print runs, expensive, and go out of print VERY quickly. And ALL their books appreciate in value. This book will be worth 300 dollars the instant it goes out of print, and then it will increase as time goes by.

2. It’s written by John Fisher, one of our industry’s most beloved historians, authors, and speakers. We saw Fisher deliver a lecture on Cardini in celebration of the book at MAGIC Live, and it was riveting. The critics in Genii and MAGIC agree: this book is gripping, and a must-buy.

3. The magic! You get so much between two covers. In 600 pages, you get a complete biography of one of our absolute masters, Cardini. You get a description of some of his material, including a step-by-step analysis of his card act.

For a limited time and for just a few of you (copies are SCARCE), we can offer this book for 150 dollars. This is a bargain for ANY Miracle Factory book. Next year, we believe this book will go for twice the price on ebay, or more. Don’t wait to read and display this fabulous collection.  


  • A complete biography of magic's master!
  • Step-by-step analysis of Cardini's act
  • Almost 600 pages
  • Over 800 illustrations
  • 350 frame-by-frame shots of his act
  • Beautiful color section  

"Cardini was one of the greatest performing magicians of all time, and this volume is guaranteed to cast his spell the instant you enter its magical pages...a truly wonderful production...the bounty of images reproduced in this volume is nothing short of astounding. This long-awaited and well-deserved testament to one of the most important magicians of the twentieth century is an inordinately welcome addition to magic's historical literature." - Jamy Ian Swiss, Genii magazine  

At last! Perhaps the greatest sleight-of-hand artist of all time, Cardini finally receives the wonderful book he deserves. A master of sleight-of-hand, a show-business success, a classic act that changed the course of his art, and a builder of intricate miracles, Cardini is here unveiled in depth and with great insight by John Fisher, a wizard of words.

Granted access to the personal notebooks, scrapbooks, and memorabilia of Cardini, John Fisher has crafted not only a revelatory biography but also a fine piece of magical literature.  

Cardini's legendary act is explained in detail, moment by moment, for the first time in print, but his amazing life story is also revealed in this fascinating work.  

Generously illustrated with hundreds of photos and mementos of this master's career, including a beautiful color frontispiece and color section.  

To top it all off, the book begins with Lance Burton paying tribute to Cardini in a heartfelt, inspiring preface.  

Hardbound, with top-quality satin-finish paper, smyth-sewn for added durability, with a heavy full-color glossy dust jacket.
