PDF – Further Classic Magic with Apparatus (Classic Magic series, vol. 4) by Robert J. Albo



Conjuring Arts and the Albo family proudly and exclusively offer Dr. Albo’s “Classic Magic” collection in PDF format!

The definitive guide to the greatest prop-based magic ever created—the next essential volume!

“I feel very strongly that magic is an art form” declares Dr. Robert J. Albo, at the outset of this vast continuation of one of the greatest contributions to magic literature in English. This volume certainly boasts artistic insight from the first page to the last.

Further Classic Magic with Apparatus begins with a study of the Okito’s act, moving from an extensive discussion of this great magician’s magical stagecraft to clear explanations of some of his finest stage effects. Next comes a look at tricks with rice and confetti, with twenty props and routines explained in full, followed by an extensive examination of effects that use balls, bells and eggs, among them the Ball Vase, the Color-Changing Billiard Balls, an fun egg-to-dove sequence and the Ball Through Glass. The concluding “Additions” section of this volume sees Dr. Albo offer a wealth of explanations (accompanied by illustrations galore, as ever) covering effects that range from the Rising Cards to the Die Box, via Card in Balloon, the Birth of Flora, and the Cut-and-Restored Necklace.

A fine addition to a remarkable series of books.

360 pages. Fully searchable text with extensive illustrations.
