Re: Harper's Magazine

This article should get more attention from magicians. Particularly close-up magicians. Perhaps the readership of Harper's doesn't intersect greatly with the magic community. It should be of specific interest to anybody who attended FISM and actually SAW the Close-up competition. Over three pages of...
