About this title


The complete Blackstone story and the history of magic from the 1920's to today. Includes profiles of the greatest stage magicians, sleight-of-hand entertainers, and mentalists. Separate chapters deal with the psychology of magic, the 10 basic magic effects, and complete, illustrated instructions for performing 20 classic routines and special tricks. 250 photos, appendices, bibliography, index.


Harry Blackstone Jr. shares the history of modern magic, largely as seen through the eyes of his family. His father was the original Great Blackstone and Blackstone has carried on the tradition. This is not a merely anecdotal history, however. It's Blackstone's personal reflections on the art and game of magic--not just how it works but why it works as entertainment. It's about the psychological showmanship as well as the craft. Included are lessons in how to perform tricks that go beyond the mere technical details to show how to make a simple trick a piece of true theater.
