Crispin Sartwell's The Color Change book

Postby Robert Meisch » June 23rd, 2011, 5:01 pm

In the latest "On the Slant", Jon writes about a book by Crispin Sartwell called The Color Change. Is there any other info?

A release date or table of contents perhaps?

I couldn't find anything on the web and it sounds like a great book.

I don't think it's available or has been advertised yet.

I expect it will be out in August both as a paper and an e-book. What did Racherbaumer say?
Thanks, Crispin

He said that "A long overdue compilation of color changes with playing cards has been written" and then went into a description of what is expected to be in the book. Looks great. Let us know here when it does come out.
