Hi there. My name is Latigo and i'm new to the forum.

I'm a working Magician from Argentina. Been studying the art for more than 10 years.

Somehow i've reached a point where i actually ENJOY reading history of magic. I've just finished 'Dai Vernon, a biography' and i found it exquisite. I now want to keep studying the history of our craft.

Would you guys recommend me other good books on the subject? Even if they're out of print or very expensive.

"Hiding the Elephant" by Jim Steinmeyer is a great read as is "The Glorius Deception" and "Art and Artifice". You can order them from Amazon by clicking on the right side of the screen.
Hopefully, this won't turn into another print verses ebook debate.
