Jim Krenz, when reviewing these volumes in The Linking Ring called them "quite simply the most important tomes published on magic." Jamy Ian Swiss in Genii wrote, "among the very greatest books of this or perhaps even the next, century." Mike Close in MAGIC said, "The Books of Wonder are the Our Magic of the late 20th century." We could go on, but you get the idea.
Tommy Wonder, one of the most respected professional magicians in the world today, performs both close-up and stage magic with consummate artistry. Volume I contains chapters on misdirection, close-up magic with cards and coins, and original platform effects, concluding with the astonishing "The Ring, the Watch and the Wallet".
Never has there been a more articulate manifesto declaring magic a true art. And never has one man offered a more detailed and coherent plan for achieving art by the practice of magic.
Among them are...
The Updated Two Cup Routine; Watch in Nest of Boxes, 3 methods; Wild Card Tamed; The Watch, the Ring & the Wallet; The Well-tempered Birdcage; and 50 other card tricks, routines and sleights.
The Books of Wonder is a set of two luxuriously produced, matched volumes, each containing approximately 340 pages of extraordinary material with 630 professional illustrations by Kelly Lyles
