New books by Giobbi and Mead from Hermetic Press

Postby Jim Maloney_dup1 » October 25th, 2006, 12:33 pm

Just got the e-mail from Hermetic Press. They're now taking orders for two new books: Card College Light, by Roberto Giobbi and Tangled Web, by Eric Mead. Both sound excellent!

Check out Hermetic Press, Inc. for details.

Does anyone know if the Mead book is the awaited republication of his previous three manuscripts?

Frank,

Tangled Web is indeed a republication of Eric's excellent set of notes.

There is also some additional material on the use of the memorized deck and one or two other surprises.

Eric's "Say Anthing" piece is worth the price of admission all by itself.

Roberto's "Card College Light" is a joint production between Roberto Giobbi, Hermetic Press and Lybrary.com. The ebook edition will be released just 3 months after the book version. The contents of the ebook will be identical to the contents of the book. The book goes for $35, the ebook goes for $26.

In case anyone prefers the German edition of "Card College Light" which is called "Roberto Light" see here: www.lybrary.com/roberto-light-trilogie-p-289.html

I consider this the best work on self-working card magic ever written. It has been a favorite among German speaking magicians for a long time. Finally it is available in English.

Best,

Chris,
Is "Card College Light" the first book in the trilogy or is it all three 'Light' books combined?

The ad copy states that there are 21 tricks in 7 routines, which would seem to coincide with the contents of only the first book in the trilogy.

Yes, this is only the first volume of the trilogy. It should probably have been titled "Card College Light vol. 1". Somehow I like the original German titles better "Roberto Light", "Roberto Extra-Light" and "Roberto Super-Light".

Thanks for the answers, guys. I'm excited to read the book either way, just curious how it was being done.

We received our shop copies yesterday. Very elegantly produced (like PROTOCOLS in format, but without the 1/4 leather binding).

Is this amazing, or what?

I ask the question this morning, and I just got back from walking the dog to get the mail, and there it is! It is really of the highest quality that only Steve can put out. Before writing this note I read both the Introduction by Teller and Eric's Preface.

We are in for a treat with this one!

Mitch...

Have we met? If not, I do look forward to meeting you. When you get senile like me I'm always misrembering people!

Mead received today..halfway through first reading...wow...one of those wonderful "I know a lot less about this than I thought I did" books...crazy three shows in three counties december saturday tommorow...really refreshing to be pulled back to looking at the big picture before jumping into that...

Glad Eric wanted to learn design...he has joined Michael Weber as my most recent magic crush...

I'm actually working on the DeLand book at the moment. 2007 is the 100th anniversary of the appearance of DeLand's first trick on the market and I'd like to see the book published in that year.

I've made a deal with Earle Oakes that will allow us to use illustrations rather than photographs in Mr. Jennings Takes It Easy (which is my preference) and he'll shortly begin doing the drawings.

That's good news and worth waiting for a little longer. Hopefully he illustrates the Tough-book then as well!
