4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, fun book 4 Jan 2010
By Andy Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My grandfather did a few magic tricks for me when I was 4-5 years old. I've been fascinated by magic and magicians ever since. I remember seeing the TV shows, The Art of Magic, on PBS 10 years ago or so. The show was a lot of fun, giving a whirlwind overview of the history of magic, going back to ancient civilizations thru the 1990s. I have been looking for a copy of the companion book for many years, and was delighted to find it last week on Amazon. I enjoy the history, the pictures, and the stories told by many contemporary magicians. Highly recommended for magic fans and collectors.
