Description

Effect: The third and final volume of the Miracles Trilogy.

At last, the Grand Finale to one of magic’s greatest literary achievements. Eric Lewis, the author of 17 books on magic, two-time Magic Castle Stage Magician of the Year, inventor and builder of museum quality apparatus, illustrator, and master story-teller, has just completed what has already been called “the largest and finest collection of original magic ever published.”‘

Within the pages of Volume III you will find children’s magic, mentalism, close-up and platform magic, as well as dozens of first-hand stories about the great stars and lesser-knowns in magic. Beautifully bound with a two-color dustjacket. Measuring 8×10 inches, gold stamped on cover and spine. Hundreds of detailed illustrations. Many historical photographs.
