Mr. Kaufmnan Wows Them in London

Postby Matthew Field » June 10th, 2019, 4:44 am

The chief Genii was a huge hit with his presentation on the card magic of Theodore DeLand at the Magic History Gathering @ The Magic Circle in London this past Saturday. The program is organized by Eddie Dawes and Magic Circle Executive Librarian Peter Lane. I was thrilled to be there, accompanied by my wife, Cheryl, and spend time with my old buddy, as well as with people like John Gaughan, another speaker. Mr. Kaufman was a star, I tells ya!

Did Richard perform a variety of effects from the Mystery and Madness deck? If so, it would have been a good idea to film it for video release so those who purchased the book could see what the effects contained within look like in action.

Yes, Richard performed about 10 De Land effects with his own handlings, which brought the material in the 21st century. I don't know if the event was filmed, but Richard had video support to make sure everybody could see the cards properly.

Sounds like a terrific presentation for the Genii convention.

The convention organizer does not present/perform at his own convention.
