Ultimate Illusion Collection The Vault Edition

Introducing the ultimate collection of professional illusions for the modern performer!

I’m really proud of this collection of work that has been 100% reformatted and updated into a two-volume set. It is a definitive tome of my contributions to illusion literature that started with my first published book in 2004.

The original edition of this book was just a compilation of my professional illusion book trilogy, “Illusionary Departures”, “Equilateral” and “Urban illusions”. However, this edition, entitled “The Vault Edition”, contains the latest versions of my entire collection of illusions as well as brand new ones! All the illusions have been sorted and divided into nine categories, classified according to illusion effect & genre.

In addition, all the stage acts & illusions detailed in my book “Illusionism” are included in this collection. These are specialty illusions designed with mentalism plots. “Illusionism” is only available as a download from Lybrary.com and has never been released before in print.

As a bonus, the method of my first mega illusion, “The Impossible Teleportation” is also outlined at the end of the book along with a discussion on creating a mega stunt.

All this translates to almost seventy professional illusions with full building plans, detailed fabrication instructions, material lists, performance and presentation notes. The book was so big that it had to be divided into two volumes!

Two Volume Book Set. Total of 425 pages. Wire Spiral Bound.

Almost 70 illusions are detailed in the 9 categories including:
