All of us who would like to have a copy of COINMAGIC should post here to show Richard the body of people who desire the book.

I'm in!

Who else?

Is it expanded or exactly the same as the original?

I have the paperback version of the original and wouldn't mind a hardback anyway.

I suspect that with the addition of Mickey Silver's coin vanish and production moves, the book would be timely... or up to date as far as this generation of conjurers.

Perhaps something by Mike Gallo using JW Grip too?

Any chance of David Roth doing a second edition of his Expert Coin Magic?

When CoinMagic is reprinted in a few months, it will be the same classic book as before, no new additions. As to why I have not done CoinMagic 2, it's the same reason that no one else has ever done a huge book of coin magic other than myself and Magic Inc.: it simply takes too much work to contemplate.

Richard -
As to a COINMAGIC VOL 2...what if you were to oversee the project, maybe select the material and edit the finished project, but have someone else write and do the artwork? It would sure be sweet to have a new volume with a collection of the best coin work over the last 20 plus years. There's no doubt that it would be another best seller. Well...a guy can dream can't he?

Originally posted by Richard Kaufman:
...the same classic book as before...
That book represents an interesting moment in coin magic. David Roth had just loosed his work on the Retention Pass, his Chink-a-Chink using Coins, the Shuttle Pass and a clever handling of the Copper and Silver Transposition using the Palm to Palm change. In the NY Underground, there was a backlog of material which could not ETHICALLY be published until the source sleights and ideas had made print, and with the Roth lecture... the time was right.

With David Roth's cooperation, and several items at the front of the book, the floodgates were open and material from the underground started to hit print.

I've recently heard a criticism about the material using too many Shuttle Passes... which is funny today yet also shows folks have forgotten the context of this book. Sure folks were using the move. It was the new/latest thing and people were free to explore. The gang was using the tools at hand, and most folks want to use the latest and best tools.

In addition to the Roth work, there is some material from Geoff Latta. Also as Richard likes to mention, that amazing bit where one takes the silver extraction routine to its next level.

Perhaps the time is right to revisit CoinMagic. I hope this generation of students in coin magic can get as much from the book as my generation did. Get out your C/S, Old Fashioned Glass, and some half dollars folks... it's a big book.

Richard,

I am thrilled to hear that CoinMagic will indeed be reprinted relatively soon! I have several Kaufman magic books in my collection, and each is a valued treasure, IMHO. Thanks for your years of hard work and your love of magic.

Regards from Tennessee,

Jon

Will we be able to pre-order? I've been trying to track down a copy of this for AGES now.
