From December 6, 2008 - February 22, 2009, the City Museum of Melbourne, Australia staged a fascinating exhibition, titled Hocus Pocus: Magic, Mystery & Illusion in Melbourne.
The exhibition catalog, offered here, is a fascinating publication that chronicles the history of magic and magicians in Melbourne and abroad, from 1584 to the present day. The book describes the lives and careers of great illusionists - Jacobs, Dante, Houdini, and Australians like Levante, Rooklyn, and Will Alma - as well as conjuring books, Melbourne magic shops, and much more.
Richly illustrated with early and rare posters, photographs and memorabilia.
56 pages, in foil-stamped wraps with flaps.
Act now! Quantities are extremely limited, as the catalog was not made available to the general public, or offered by other vendors outside Australia.
