Long unavailable, Lewis Ganson's The Magic of Slydini
is, perhaps, one of the most influential magic books ever. Many of its routines have now become classics in magic, including Flight of the Paper Balls, Helicopter Card, Coins Through The Table, Slydini's Knotted Silks, The Paper Balls In The Hat and others. In many ways, these routines have all become standard phrases in the language of magic - and they all started with this book.
In this brand new edition, Slydini has some additional things to say about his creations. Some time ago, Dr. Gene Matsuura went through the text of Ganson's book with Tony Slydini and took careful notes as Slydini made valuable additions and observations based on his experience with the material after the book's initial publication.
The Annotated Magic of Slydini presents every word of Lewis Ganson's original text, printed in black, along with Slydini's additions and corrections, printed in blue, making this an invaluable and essential work even for those who own the original book.
The Annotated Magic of Slydini is printed on the highest quality enamel paper. All 450 photos have been repositioned to correspond directly with the text and have been rescreened for optimum reproduction, including a half-dozen new photos not seen in the original.
This edition features a different binding from the regular edition. This deluxe edition includes a careful reproduction of a letter from Slydini used in the original limited edition.
