There are two distinct types of buyers when it comes to magic. There are the readers, that enjoy following the directions, reading the theory and usually come out with something that has a lot of themselves in it. Then there are those magicians who like DVDs. They find it less tedious than a book. They like to see what they have to do and what the result will be. One type is not better than the other, just different. Vive la difference!
There is a tremendous choice in both these mediums. And they touch on every aspect of magic. One book just came out that is a cross between the two. It’s visual. No tricks but lovely to look at. “The Golden Age of Magic Posters”.Its a beautiful book that even the DVD lovers would love.
But if you are looking for a great book to delve into, The Aretalogy of Vanni Bossi is a must. Highly recommended, written by Stephen Minch with a forward by Roberto Giobbi.
I must admit I didn’t know what Aretalogy meant so here it is… ARETALOGY-n. A narrative about the deeds of a miracle worker.
