We’ve finally reached an Al Baker’s dozen!
Our 13th issue of Gibecière (Vol. 7, No. 1) is available at Conjuring Arts!
This issue features new and fascinating research by Ricky Jay and Enrique Jiménez-Martinez that casts doubt on the integrity of the stories in The life, adventures, and unparalleled sufferings of Andrew Oehler, while simultaneously taking a look at the degree of suffering magicians faced at the hands of religious persecutors in the 1400s to 1800s!
Additionally we have a rare and privileged look into the New York magic scene from 1938-1958 courtesy of none other than Jean Hugard! We have reproduced and annotated his letters to Orville Meyer and they contain all the salient tips, tricks, commentary, and, of course, gossip that you would expect…and more!
