Below are 22 books, separated into four sections:

Cups&Balls/Chop Cups - Juggling - Building Illusions - The Zombie

A photo leading each section, followed by a brief description of the book.

When I listed the 62 assorted 'cheaper books' earlier this week, these were
sold on an individual bases.

This worked, so well - lets do it again with these 22 books.

Just email with your questions or order.

Thanks,
