PDF – The Classic Magic series by Robert J. Albo



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

All eleven volumes—one special price!

Between 1973 and 2005, Dr. Robert J. Albo produced one of the greatest sets of books in magic literature—the eleven-volume Classic Magic series. Drawing on his extensive collection of props and vast knowledge, Dr. Albo offers readers a comprehensive guide to prop-based conjuring that spans hundreds of years, thousands of miles, and a wealth of effects.

While the extremely limited-edition Classic Magic books are now greatly sought after and fetch extremely high prices in their original format, Conjuring Arts is delighted to exclusively offer Dr. Albo’s definitive series as a set of fully searchable PDFs.

Whether you’re a keen student of magic history or a performer seeking to expand your show, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to discover the props and routines that have made the reputations of master magicians throughout the ages.
