Re: Become a Magic Book Publisher! The SEQUEL: Rosenthal Coi

You could do a Kickstarter for it. The $3,000 to purchase the project is not the problem. It will be an expensive book to produce because the photos require that it be printed on enamel stock. More expensive paper, heavier book, higher postage, etc. Not trying to discourage you, Ian. Just want you t...

Re: Become a Magic Book Publisher! The SEQUEL: Rosenthal Coi

It's not a question of the funding, but the work. Writing up coin tricks is very difficult, and this is an extremely large book. And then there are all the photographs (probably 1,000) to take--which means the author has to learn all the material. The price is not high, only the $3,000 advance I pai...

Re: ERDNASE

Is it necessary to state that eye-witness identification of criminal suspects has repeatedly been proven unreliable and sent many thousands of innocent people to jail? M.D. Smith's "eye-witness" recollections, so many decades after the fact, may be reliable, or completely un reliable. The ...

Re: From The Guardian

The background I heard is that they wanted to put Katherin Mills on as a solo show, but didn't think it would go over yet, so filled the bill with other acts as well. Expect that, if the show does well, she will be promoted to a solo show.

Re: ERDNASE

This part of Smith's wording is to be doubted: "Smith recalled that Erdnase was a small man of slight build, with blonde hair, 5'10" at the tallest." 5 foot 10 inches tall would not have been considered a "small man of slight build" at that height in 1902. It is not consider...

Re: David Copperfield Magic Museum Tour

A lot more people have seen David's collection than Ricky's.

David collects in a very specific way, not "all and sundry."

I believe that eventually David's collection will be available for people to see. I have no idea what Ricky's plans are.

I spent about two or three hours with Moritz at FISM. He is incredibly good--the skill of a very good 25 year old. He has a very soft touch. Amazingly, even though his hands are small, he uses half dollars and even does some things with silver dollars. Quite amazing!
