Each month in MAGIC magazine, Mike Caveney selects from the files of the legendary Egyptian Hall Museum a letter of historical importance. Sometimes the writer or recipient (or both) are well-known names while other times the players are totally unknown, but every letter sheds new light on a shadowy corner of magic’s fascinating history. After placing each letter in context Mike provides additional information about the people, places, tricks, theaters and everything else that might be mentioned, illustrating it with rare memorabilia from his collection. It’s like being taken on a guided tour through the historical files of Egyptian Hall Museum by the curator.The first 24 articles that appeared in MAGIC magazine (2006-07) have been collected into a beautiful new book. The entire book is printed in full-color with additional annotations, previously-unseen photographs, posters and other rare memorabilia.
If you enjoy reading Mike’s monthly column (back in MAGIC for 2010 – 2011) you will love this expanded and enhanced volume containing the first series of 24 letters. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who loves the art of magic.
Pages: 288 – 6″ x 9″ – Hardcover – fully indexed, with beautiful full-color endsheets
