Two Volume Set: Volume One & Two in a beautiful slipcase. Johnny Thompson is one of the most respected minds in magic and a living legend. He was our Guest of Honor this year at The Session, and he BROUGHT THE HOUSE DOWN with his inimitable magic, as well as fantastic anecdotes about Vernon, Miller, and nearly every other important figure in magic. What makes Johnny unique, to us, is that he is a master of many trades: he had one of the most iconic stage acts of his era, a sterling close-up repertoire, and a distinguished career as a trade-show magician. In later years he became THE consultant for magic television shows.
Written by renowned author Jamy Ian Swiss and the master magician himself, Johnny Thompson, The Magic of Johnny Thompson meticulously details the real secrets of seventy-eight of Johnnys most cherished and celebrated routines, including The Cups & Balls, The Balls in the Net, The Egg Bag and The Gamblers Ballad. It also includes previously unpublished material from Johnnys respected colleagues and mentors including Dai Vernon, Harry Riser and Ed Marlo. There is an extended chapter devoted to the close-up magic of Charlie Miller and Max Malini. There is also a chapter devoted to dove and silk magic by The Great Tomsoni & Co. Which includes a thorough essay on the development of a dove act.
This handsome two-volume, slipcased set is over 660 pages and is illustrated with nearly 1,100 photographs and features forewords by Jamy Ian Swiss and Lance Burton, and introductions by Teller and Levent.
