Product Description


So successful has been Dr. John Booth's series of conjuring volumes beginning with Psychic Paradoxes in 1984 that a fifth book, Conjurians' Discoveries, was inevitable. Sometimes controversial, always informative, and written with the cooperation of the foremost performers and thinkers in magic today, he brings a distinctive style of writing to many subjects seldom discussed. This book contains 20 chapters and scores of photographs and illustrations where many new discoveries in tricks, secrets, creativity and history appear. The reader of this book will find documentation for the true creator of the word 'escapologist', and for the strange case and claims for the first aerial flight in Australia, 24 hours before Houdini's. Why could Thurston amaze audiences world-wide with his brilliant manipulation card act even though his little trick book, sold publicly everywhere, exposed most of it?

Stand up performers will relish secrets here for one of the finest, simplest Cards-to Pocket methods ever conceived, a stage Hydrostatic Glass routine so good it closes the act of a famous British magician (inspired by Booth's routine), an effective Glass Penetration presentation, and a complete Dermo-Optic Sight act that will stun your audiences. Want an intriguingly fresh theme? Work on his ideas for Polygraph Prestidigitation.

Card workers! Close-up entertainers! In order to learn how such stars think, practice and create, Booth interviewed at length luminaries like John Carney, Michael Weber, Bruce Cervon, Michael Ammar, Daryl, David Roth, Johnny Ace Palmer, Juan Tamariz, and Albert Goshman. What memorable material all in one book.

Learn how Jim Steinmeyer, Christian Fechner, Stewart James, André Kole and Robert Harbin, giants all, produce their inventions. Elsewhere, noted school assembly professionals disclose their private agenda for booking, building successful programs, handling children, pitfalls to avoid, and insights for a secure career in this field. Opportunities in electronic wizardry as represented by David Abbott, Voltaire and Mr. Electric. In this galaxy of magic, meet magicians who are eminent clergymen, painters and sculptors. Is magic debatably really an art?

Clearly this book overflows with useful, surprising and unfamiliar information for the working performer, hobbyist, scholar and thinker in magic.
