The Conjuring Anthology By Jim Steinmeyer
Most of the content of the book “The Conjuring Anthology” is assembled from Steinmeyer’s ‘Conjuring‘ articles published in the MAGIC Magazine between 1992 and 2004.
All the effects are accompanied with ample clearly drawn illustrations.
It also includes many old priceless classic effects, which can inspire you to develop your own magical ideas.
I find many of Andrew Mayne’s tricks and illusion ideas are inspired by Jim Steinmeyer’s works.
For instance, the brick-in-the-paper-bag effect, Tear Down trick (torn and restored newspaper), and others.
The stage illusion apparatus are smaller as compared to those found in stage illusion plans collection by Paul Osborne.
If you are up-and-coming stage illusionist or even a devoted hobbyist of magic tricks, you should get hold of this book now.
I find even the Introducing in this book by Jim Steinmeyer is a great lesson and motivation to magicians.
If you are a creative or innovative magician, you can improvise or create your own tricks based on the effects in this book.
In fact, with this very book alone, you can perform a full stage illusion show.
The effects or tricks found in “The Conjuring Anthology” are:
The Incessant Newspaper, The Efficient Stamp, The Lustig Money Machine, Cigars Sala Bim, The Tassel Of Abundant Enterprise, The Vicarious Cocktail, The Plate Glass Mystery, The Headline Prediction, The Perforated Brick, Roy’s Bill In The Light Bulb, etc.
Note: For those who have never heard of the notorious Lustig’s Money Machine” scam, read this story.
Related: The late illusionist Marvyn Roy is known as “Mr. Electric“, who did his acts based around light bulbs that became known as Artistry in Light.
The highlight of his act is with his wife Carol, pulling a string of lighted light bulbs from his mouth.
