DetailsThe Magic Egg-Fascinating, Mysterious, Perfect in Form and Innately Funny
How can one simple object be all these things and more? That is, perhaps, the central mystery of the egg. But with al these things going for it, the egg is a perfect prop for the magician, and magicians have been using it for centuries. So why has it taken so long for a comprehensive collection on magic with eggs to appear? That is still another mystery of the egg.
The egg is a prop that "packs small, plays big" and suits itself to all venues: close-up, platform and stage. The Encyclopedia of Egg Magic covers it all, with extensive chapters on: Natural Eggs, Imitation Eggs, Fekes & Gmmicks, Productions, Vanishes, Balancing Feats, The Egg Bag, Transpositions, Animations, Transformations, Miscellaneous Effects and Routines.
319 large pages containing more than 270 tricks and routines gathered form hundreds of sources, plus nearly 50 more articles pertaining to the performance of uncommon and amazing things with the common and humble egg, supplemented by over 490 illustrations by J.K. Schmidt. Of special note is a wealth of material for the parlor and stage magician.

If you have the extra 60 bucks get it as it is an excellent book to flip through over and over again.A lots of good thoughts and concepts.Give it a brown paper bag book cover to keep in it good nick for years to come as I feel it is a collectible and would have value even to the non magicians as it is such an interesting book.
Recently, I found I bought a bunch of old Tarbell books form the 40's from an estate sale and the old magician before me wrapped his old books in brown paper bag book covers and he put electrical tape down the spine as a result those book are in almost new condition.
Point is this book is a collectible and is worth protecting.
These days I love specialized encyclopedias .I feel in the long run magic encyclopedias save us magicians money and they help us with our creativity which is very important. (Posted on 6/13/14)
