– David Blaine

– Pit Hartling
“John Lovick is one of the most original, creative, and intelligent magicians we know, and this volume is invaluable. It offers profound cases in development, construction, writing, staging, and timing that will inspire magicians for generations.”
– Dan & Dave Buck
Written by male model/master magician Handsome Jack (with footnotes by John Lovick), this treatise is a rarity in the magic world: it’s as funny (and attractive) as it is instructive. Handsome Jack etc. details twenty stand-up (and close-up) routines with complete scripts, histories, and commentary on their development and performance.
In addition to Jack’s urbane descriptions, Lovick provides two essential essays on the subjects of scripting and persona.
A deluxe 212-page hardcover with two-color text, thirty original caricatures, and an introduction by Penn & Teller. This is one hardbound collection sure to turn heads – just like Handsome Jack.
