I’ve got a couple of essays on getting and working illusions into your show for budding illusionists or magicians looking to get into genre of magic. (You can read them at www.illusionbooks.com )
I have found another resource that is great value for money! I just realized that U.F. Grant’s booklet on illusions are available as an e-book at www.lybrary.com
This is a superb booklet (only US$5.00) for someone who is interested to learn a number of classic illusions and try to put the materials together for a first illusion. Even if you already own an illusion, you could easily find an affordable illusion.
Bear in mind, this is not a contemporary book but an old one (to some of you “crazy old”) but many of the principles used in the illusions are employed for many moder illusion designs.
You can’t go wrong with the price 🙂 You can buy it here.
