Returning to the Magic Rainbow pricing, I can only compare it with the pricing of Mnemonica, a similarly important Tamariz work, when it was released by Stephen Minch. I refer you back to my post above. Let me add: Mnemonica is a book of tricks. The Magic Rainbow is a book on creating magic. Yes, I...

Few books reach that goal. No one is doubting the quality of the contents of the book. If there ought to be a direct...
PapaG,How many magic books do you own? I can look at one shelf in my library - filled with unbound (or spiral bound) pamphlets - some of only a handful of pages - each of which cost as much as this nicely and professionally produced book by penguin.

Magicians should really get behind Andy. He is one of the real bright sparks in our field and it would be more than a real shame to see The Jerx disappear. The subscription rate is something extremely affordable and, for those who do subscribe, there will be exclusive content. I really think we're l...
