Five Star Review!

9 Oct

It’s official…The Essential Stewart James is a five star winner!

REVIEW

Imagine that for just $35 you could have some of magic’s finest performers and inventors cull through the collected works of a genius and provide you with the very best of the material. Well, that’s no pipe dream, that’s exactly what this book provides. Even if you have the mammoth James publications, consider this took a “reader’s guide” at a bargain price. If you don’t have the publications from which it draws, then consider this a must have addition to your library. The price, production, and quality of material cannot be beat.

About the Book
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.
