Re: "I Hate Card Tricks" by Magicbob

Wow! What a firestorm has been created. I had no idea such a lively discussion was occuring here. But, as the author, I guess I should really weigh in. First of all, let me introduce myself.

Re: How Long Do you Spend Reading Genii?

It seems that for a few more years we will be subject to the cheapness of Wilmarth. Once his presidency is over I'm sure someone will introduce the idea that we are not out to publish the Linking Ring on the cheap and they will come up to date with a larger format,coated stock, like they used to and...

The Quality of Genii

Am I the only person who appreciates the graphic quality of the Kauffmanized Genii? Now the mag has graphic elegance that the Larsen family never knew. Now how how about the Cheap Linking Ring, when will it begin to improve starting with the upgrading of all of its paper. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs...

Re: Let me know what other magazines you read in addition to Genii

You must assume much of the credit. The graphic excellence of Genii has imoroved ten times since the graphic tragedy of Erika. Great taste and restraint. I often write Phil Wilmarth to stop doing the Linking Ring on the Cheap!

Re: favourite illustrations

The one that really impressed me was Tenkai. He published a manuscript through Abbotts that had a few tricks, but the illustrations for his silken cords were clear and specific. Taihen josu [censored].

Re: Keep up the excellent work!

I am amazed at the graphic elegance of Genii. The restraint of the art director is great,(one initial cap per page. and none od the temptations of previous editiors to exploit the Typestyler Program for every deviation and shape of type. Keep up the clean elegant look.

Re: A Loaded Question for the Readers of Genii

Years ago while living in Tokyo, I studied Japanese and got pretty good at it, but never to the point I could read it. The most popular magazine was "Kijutsu Kenkyo" (the study of Magic.) While I coulden't read the Kangi Characters the vast number of illustrations made it all understandabl...
