The Neat Review is an ad-hoc journal that explores the crossovers between the worlds of magic and other arts. There is a fascinating dialogue that exists between the creative worlds, and magicians seem privy to the most unlikely interminglings of those worlds.

The contributors have magic as a hobby, but work professionally as photographers, visual artists, writers, graphic designers, teachers. In this issue, we read conversations between magic and photography, magic and painting, magic and philosophy, writing, and acting. Each world grows from that dialogue. There are five essays, three tricks, two card sleights, and a 26-page interview with quite possibly the best mind reader in the history of magic; Derren Brown.

Each issue is set in a different city around the world. We begin the series with our launch issue, set in London.

This issue features:

  • Derren Brown
  • Stephen Long
  • Justin Higham
  • Andrew Frost
  • Rory Adams
  • Paavan Buddhdev
  • Alexander Hansford
  • Kez Dearmer

Don't let the fact that this is considered a journal distract you. This is essentially a book; with 192 pages, perfect binding and a linen embossed cover.

    Albert asks: The "Neat Review" looks, well neat. Is there any chance that a paragraph or two could be made clearer in the ads? The photos are great, but they say nothing. And the text is virtually invisible. Or have I missed a trick and can they somehow be enhanced? I don't want the whole thing, of course, just something that gives more of an idea than at present.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The photos are just to give an idea of the style of magazine. They are not intended to be read, as such.
