The book covers a wide variety of magic, though most of it is close-up.
Because of the manner in which the publisher (Adam Fleischer) wanted the work done, the books were prepared with extreme haste. The fact that they turned out as well as they did is remarkable.
There's some very good magic in the second volume. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
It's hard to believe that I wrote and illustrated it over 20 years ago!
