Never has there been a more articulate manifesto declaring magic a true art. And never has one man offered a more detailed and coherent plan for achieving art by the practice of magic.

Through a series of tricks, routines and essays, Tommy Wonder provides a clear blueprint for an uncompromising brand of magical theater. Along the way he explains his professional routines for Close-up. Stand-up, Walk-around and Stage.

Among them are...The Updated Two Cup Routine; Watch in Nest of Boxes, 3 methods; Wild Card Tamed; The Watch, the Ring & the Wallet; The Well-tempered Birdcage; and 50 other card tricks, routines and sleights.

The Books of Wonder is a set of two luxuriously produced, matched volumes, each containing approximately 340 pages of extraordinary material with 630 professional illustrations by Kelly Lyles.

These are a fantastic set of books to own and you will learn a lot about the magic of Tommy Wonder. You may have some trouble finding the props described in these books and some are very hard to build yourself, some are not. There are many tricks to be learned but much more on presentation and psychology of magic. If you are serious about your magic and want to learn from a legend these are a great set of books to have in your library. Add to cart.

I can't say it enough: Everybody should study these books. Regardless of the kind of magic you do (close-up ,stage, mentalism) you will find something extremely useful and enlightening in Tommy Wonder's work. Not only the material is extremely strong, well thought-out and constructed, and original but also the theoretical ideas present in the essays will take your magic to a different level. Tommy Wonder was an extraordinary performer and a genial thinker and that is what you will find in the Books of Wonder.

Tommy Wonder was a great, great magician. These books are considered very important books in magic-they detail his amazing tricks and his thoughts on what makes magic so effective. I personally love his Ring, Wallet, Watch routine- it's quite possibly one of my favourite tricks in close-up magic!
