Ibidem magazine ran from 1955 to 1979, during which time its editor, P. Howard Lyons, produced 36 issues. Those issues accumulated quite a reputation. For its long unperiodic existence, Ibidem became recognized as the best source for avant-garde card magic and diverse curious pursuits of Lyons and his diabolically inventive crew. All 36 issues plus related unpublished material will be gathered into three large volumes, re-typeset in a fashion that retains the quirky style of the original magazines while making the text easier to read. As important as the text are the many witty illustrations and covers done by respected professional artist Pat Lyons (Howard's talented wife). For these books, Pat Lyons has redrawn all her artwork, being faithful to the originals while enhancing them for the superior reproduction techniques used for these volumes. And all her hand-screened covers are carefully reproduced as color plates!
Volume 1 contains the first 16 issues. 352 pages, hardcover.
