The Hermit Magic Magazine

Postby Scottbbaird » January 5th, 2022, 1:23 pm

Hello,

I have started an independent magic magazine that pays homage to the many great magic magazines from the 1950s to 2000s. The Hermit Magic Magazine http://www.hermitmagic.com is a new digital monthly shipped in PDF form right to your email inbox, that focuses on creativity, engagement, and inspiration in magic. I am proud to boast contributions from the likes of Curtis Kam, Michal Kociolek, Harapan Ong, John Carey, Michael Rubinstein, Caroline Ravn, Rick Holcombe, Bill Citino, Chris Mayhew, Jay Sankey, Ryan Pilling, Gwyn Auger, Michael Pilkey, Greg Boggs, Rico Weeland, and myself.

Launched on January 1st, The Hermit is now offering single issues or subscriptions online. Inside each issue you will find:
- New magic routines, usually including a full presentation, and always with accompanying credits.
​- Every effect is professionally illustrated for clarity (and because traditional magic illustrations are gorgeous).
​- Articles and essays on topics of interest for magicians, including:
- Art and Design as they relate to magic
- Creative prompts and puzzles
- Methods for keeping organized
- Personal and professional development
- and more!
- Reviews of previously published magic books that highlight the gems that you may have missed- because we don't only learn from recent releases.​
​- Contests and calls for participation from the magic community, engaging the reader with fun and creative tasks.
- And much more!

Do get in touch with me if you have any questions!
Cheers,
Scott.

The first issue (JAN 2022) is available for purchase at http://www.hermitmagic.com

Vol. 1, No. 1 builds on the two methods taught previously in our free pilot issue (2 presentations for Rubik's Nap are offered, as well as a routine that uses the FUJ Shuffle, based on a David Solomon card plot). Our first issue also offers much more content, including:

​- Swatch by Chris Mayhew- a new touch on the torn corner receipt switch.
- A literal change to the standard visual coins across routine by Scott Baird, that may trigger purists and cause you to question how you think about coins "flying".
- A dissertation of sorts on the "Do as I do" plot, and ideas about how to turn it around to make it unique and memorable.
- Gwyn Auger takes us through some basics of social media and marketing.
- Read the first "Sankey Says" column to be featured in The Hermit, on the power of being persistent.
- a new #hermitmagicchallenge is introduced.
- the IBM logo is re-designed as an exercise of a different creative process.
And more!

(for a breakdown of the full contents, check it out on http://www.conjuringarchive.com)

Keep an eye out for Vol. 1, No. 2, which is released on February 1st! A list of contents is available (and preorders can be purchased) at http://www.hermitmagic.com/issues. Single issues are CAD $10 (about $8 USD) and subscriptions are even cheaper!

Cheers,
Scott.
