Tenyo Books

Postby Steve Cobb » May 29th, 2015, 3:48 am

Good Day! What is the best way to reserve a copy of the new Tenyo books? Will they be available through dealers or what is the best course of action to make sure I get a copy?

Once the Tenyo book comes out, is Deland next?

I'm not sure if another $100+ book is the way to go right after Tenyo.

Just about halfway through a reread of DeLand and it holds up well. Have another 400 pages to read, then have to find someone to lay it out. I do the reading while on plane flights, and have plenty of those coming up!

I am quite exhausted from the Tenyo book.

Must wait and see.

Are the methods to all the Tenyo tricks in the book also revealed?

No--Tenyo felt that the customers who purchased the tricks paid for those methods, and it didn't have much meaning to describe the method for a trick involving a plastic injection molded prop that you wouldn't be able to do without the prop.

I do explain new handlings using the props (many of these--over a hundred) that will be understandable to those who own them.

I also explain many of the super-rare tricks that Tenyo handmade in small quantities (a few hundred) and sold only in Japan. These you can make yourself.

Having flipped through the volume one print proof at MAGIC Live, I agree.

Mine just showed up yesterday. Merry Christmas to me. Thanks Richard! Unfortunately, my wife whisked it away, wrapped it up and put it under the tree. Now I have to wait a bit longer.
