This fine book of assorted magic has been out of print for years. Reprinted as a hardbound book with dust jacket, it is again available to delight today’s magicians who do not have their copy. Coins, cards, and other close up magic, but also has some important club and stage effects.
A number of contributors, including the author, offer a wide variety of magic effects for stage and close-up. There are seven effects offered by North Carolina's own Bill Spooner including the Deceptive Roll Cut. Milliken's Transposition is worth the price of the book. It is a double transportation with two halves and two quarters. Ellison Poland was a technical writer for Westinghouse and knew the art of writing magic instructions. He was also a great illustrator. The 251-page book is well illustrated with numerous line drawings. There is also a section on Decorating and Finishing Magical Apparatus. The table of contents has 55 entries. Wonderful Routines Of Magic concludes with an annotated bibliography. The hard binding is black with gold lettering. You will not be disappointed with the quality of the content or of the book binding. A great buy!
