The 80's Called... They Want Their Magic Book Back
by Jonathan Friedman
The 80's Called... They Want Their Magic Book Back - Volume One by Jonathan Friedman is the first of a two-part series. Kicking off with an introduction by David Regal, this book features 22 incredible effects and highly entertaining presentations of magic with different objects like cards, coins, and even pretzels.
This book is filled with quirky, visual, and 'retro-istic' flair. Friedman's collection of magic is just as much fun to read for pure pleasure as it is to learn from. Every routine includes a full, audience-tested and approved script, a large number of easy-to-follow photographs, and enough raw mystery and entertainment value to really take your magic to another dimension.
Along with Jonathan Friedman's own special brand of magic, this book features wonderful guest contributions from a powerhouse crew of some of close up magic's most respected names, including John Guastaferro, Cameron Francis, Francis Menotti, Steve Mayhew, Joe Cole, and Shaun Dunn!
So really, what's up with the sunglasses?
