A short note to let you know about a new book about the Maskelyne/Kellar/Thurston levitation. Levitation: Physics and Psychology in the Service of Deception
stars the aforementioned magicians and also features Guy Jarrett as narrator and tour guide. If you've ever wondered how presenting real magic in the form of a graphic novel would work, this is probably the first book to do so. And even if you haven't wondered about that, I think Genii readers will enjoy this classic story!
You can read more information (written in a style that sounds remarkably like a press release) at http://www.gt-labs.com/levitation.html
At the site you'll also find links to reviews, a web-based preview, and can order it as well, of course. As a further enticement, I've posted a longer preview exclusively for Genii forum members at http://www.gt-labs.com/images/levitation_excerpt.pdf
(It's at a reduced resolution to give you a quick download.)
Thanks...I hope you all enjoy the book.
