I watched the excellent Alex Elmsley 'Signature Magicians' DVD for the first time last night. Wonderful... I have always being fascinated by Alex Elmsley - Does anybody know if his background has ever been covered in any of the magic magazines? For instance, I would be interested to know what subject he studied at Cambridge University, and if he was a genius in his studies as well as in his magic? I studied Philosophy myself (at a much less renowned university!), and would love to know if Elmsley ever tool an interest in it?
Also, I would say that Roy Walton and Alex Elmsley were the two greatest card creators of the twentieth century. In my opinion, Marlo, Jennings, Hamman and Vernon don't come close. I often wonder if more American magicians would agree had they they both being born on the other side of the Atlantic?
All the best,
