The Essential Stewart James by Stewart James & Allan Slaight
Price: $35.00
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

Canadian Stewart James was the most prolific inventor of magic in the twentieth century. Where most magicians invent a handful of magic routines during the course of their life, Stewart James created over one thousand. His prodigious output has been recorded in two mammoth publications totally over 2,700 pages. James' vast body of work has now been distilled to 50 of his "greatest tricks", The Essential Stewart James.

Allan Slaight, co-editor of "Stewart James In Print" and author of "The James File", asked dozens of Stewart James' aficionados including Max Maven, Michael Weber, Bob Farmer, Stephen Minch, Bill Goodwin, Gordon Bean, David Ben, Roy Walton, Charles Reynolds, Gabe Fajuri, Steve Beam, and Peter Duffie among others, to whittle over 1,000 of James' creations down to their fifty favourite, in other words, the essential Stewart James.

For those who own the earlier Stewart James tomes ("Stewart James In Print: The First Fifty Years" and "The James File") but are intimated by the size and scope of the material, this book is for you! The Essential Stewart James serves as a tourist guide through the land of James. For those who are encountering this wily Canadian wizard for the first time, this book serves as a primer to the brilliance of the man, his methods and his magic.

This is a fantastic book. It's filled with classic, original thinking that is so rare these days. I'm tired of effects and books that are merely retreads or combinations of old, established principles. The collection of effects in this book represent some of the most creative thinking and problem-solving you're likely to find.

Some will complain that many of the card effects are too set-up intensive... but honestly, that doesn't concern me when the end result is an effect that's as well-devised as these are.

For me, this book is absolutely a must-have.
