Description

Effect: With great pleasure and pride, MAGICO presents Fetsching Magic: The Life and Legacy of Hen Fetsch by Robert Kirkwood Spence. Here is a long overdue testimonial to the untold influence of a gifted Twentieth Century magician’s magician, who might well be called “The Father of the Modern Magic Lecture.”

Hen Fetsch was an inventive genius. Mental Epic, Symbologic and Quadropelets were only the tip of his creative iceberg.  Reading this book you will find over 100 brilliant items of magic and mentalism for close-up and stage. Everything found within these pages is a creation by Mr. Fetsch himself!

Filled with great information, wonderful illustrations, and photos.
