This Genii issue is amazing! I just love seeing all the old magic inventions. There are several amusing and entertaining letters. I really enjoyed reading a letter from Richard Himber to Gen UF Grant describing his see through pierced balloon prop. Many of these old magic inventions are not made anymore because they aren't cost effective. Genii did a good job of selecting items that would appeal to a large cross section of people. For example, it is hard to find any literature on small illusions. There are several in this issue. A few of these I plan on making, just because they are great effects, and would make a fun project for very little cost.
I highly recommend it.
