The Magic Wand has been painstakingly scanned and put on three CD
Roms and is supplied together with an introductory leaflet by Todd Karr.
The Digital Magic Wand (which can be enjoyed on PC or Mac) has
been long awaited and has taken many, many months of careful work.
The Magic Wand began life as The Wizard and was published
and edited by P T Selbit. After 5 years it changed its name to The
Magic Wand and was edited for many years by George Munro.
Without doubt The Magic Wand is the most important, most
significant and most interesting of all the magic magazines to be
published during the last century in Britain. There is not a magician
of any worth who is not mentioned within its pages and the tricks it
contains can so easily be used today. The style of the magazine
changed with the decades but in 1957 it came to an unexpected end.
Within the pages of the magazine is the history of magic.
As Todd Karr says in his wonderful introduction to The Digital Magic
“A wave of the wand and you will be transported into a world
of secrets long hidden away. Thanks to digital magic, you have the
power at your fingertips to open the doors of bygone magicians and lost
secrets. Caverns of information await you: articles by
the masters, profiles on the top
research and effects in every
realm of conjuring.”
