Into The Copperfield Zone

Postby JohnCox » February 24th, 2018, 4:01 pm

Recently I had the extreme pleasure of seeing David Copperfield's amazing collection in Las Vegas. I've shared the full experience in a two-part post on my blog: "Into The Copperfield Zone".

Whether you have or haven't visited David's private magic museum, do read John's excellent blog posts. It's much more thrilling than most of the recent movies.
Thanks, John, for sharing your experience. I look forward to more of your skillful writing.

Thanks, Chris.

When I was leaving, I asked David what was on or off the record, what I could share or what he would prefer to keep private. Maybe he wouldn't want me to talk about what was inside his private vault. That's not part of the normal tour! He just waved his hand and said I could say and share anything I wanted. I think maybe one of the reasons he invited me in was precisely so I could share this with all of you, so I'm very happy to have done so. :)
