I just posted a very rare Houdini pitchbook from Russia on my blog. The book is from 1903 with a very early image of Houdini. If you care to see it or leave a comment, here's the link.

Joe,

Thanks. You should be able to get a closer look at the book out by you when it goes on tour later this year. The book will make two stops in CA. One will be in LA and the other will be San Francisco.

Thanks Again,
Kevin

It's a lot less "very rare" in Russia. ;)

(always liked that image on the front cover)
