Hello Magic Book Lovers!
About 18 months ago I started building my magic library. I wanted to build a good solid set of books that covered many aspects of magic, from cards, performance, history, mentalism, sleights, etc. This was to be a library that I could read, rather than one that I would just collect.
I found very little on the web that provided me with a comprehensive basis to make my decisions for which books to buy. I found myself talking to other experienced magicians, reading small lists here and there, reading this forum amongst other places and slowly but surely I managed to create a library that started to fulfill my requirements.
As a result of the lack of complete sources for magic books on the web I decided to build my own site:
Naturally its not complete and I'm know I have a bunch more data to add, reviews, descriptions, etc. Plus of course more books to buy. But it now contains 375 books, over 1000 photos, and has some reviews.
I have tried to apply multiple categories to books, and provide all the basic book data: pages, publisher, date, size, etc.
As a starting point for any magician who is in the process of creating their own magic library I believe it fills a nice little gap on the web today.
Of course, I'll probably find now that there are all these sites out there that are just like it, but I have yet to find one.
Let me know your thoughts and any other ideas you have. If you want to post reviews of your favorite books feel free to do so. And any copy you have of missing descriptions will be welcome too!
