John Bannon

John Bannon came of the scene in the late ‘80s, but it was the publication of his first hardbound book 'Impossibila', that really boosted him to the front of the magic community. He has created well-crafted and close-up magic. John created a must have book, 'Impossibila', which was followed up with a second book called 'Smoke and Mirrors', which continued the high standards he set in his first book. Despite John's Marriage and his career as a very successful attorney, he did not stop working on and creating new magic effects.

He has also created Videos of 'Impossibila' and 'Smoke and Mirrors', as well as effects such as 'Twisted Sisters' and 'Technicolor Thunder' made with David Solomon and Simon Aronson.

John Bannon is one of the most popular creators of close-up magic and his routines are regularly used by most professional and hobbyist magicians.

this is extremely untrue. he is famous for strangers gallery, return of the magnificent seven, underhanded, twixt the devil, dead reckoning, beyond fabulus, degrees of freedom, timley departure, and a lot more stuff.

he is yet to release a bad effect. who else can you say that about?

Thanks DWMagic for putting this up!

And don't forget his recent publication "Dear Mr Fantasy". A must have book in my opinion. Not only for the tricks described but also for the psychology behind the tricks.

No, No thats not what I meant. I meant to say something along the lines of "I like this guy because he created Twisted Sisters." You get what I mean.

I got Twisted Sisters a few weeks ago, and have since bought a few other tricks by Bannon. They're really all great. If you have Dear Mr. Fantasy, check out the 5 card stud trick near the end. I'm not sure what it's called, but it's amazing.
