The Genii compilations

Postby ovel » November 21st, 2014, 5:46 am

Is there a project of creating a serie of book compiling magic material that Genii has publish since the beginning? Each book could adress a certain kind of magic (card, coin, vanishes,....).
It would reference the origin of the article (date and issue) and the author.

I would be interested in possessing a compilation focusing on card sleights only or mixing sleights and tricks.

Would anyone be interested too?

Would be easy to collaborate and compile these lists using MagicPedia. Like was done for ... n_in_Genii

I think such a project would work better electronically rather than hard copy.

While there are many rather outstanding (indeed, seminal) routines published in Genii's history, not all is first class. You'd have to sift through a lot of average stuff to find the gems.

An electronic medium would make this much easier to do rather than with an expensive hardbound series of books.
