Most Popular Stories of the Week: 23rd June to 29th June 2014

Every day we collate magic news, stories, pictures and videos, discovered and shared by magicians from around the world. Here’s our round up of the most visited articles from our daily news page last week. Just a small selection of the 400+ articles we share...

Welcome

Remember what first sparked your interest in magic? seeing that first trick, being amazed by a performance or the buzz you got from your first routine.

Well, these scrapbooks were mine. I came across these as a kid, dug them out of the attic, dusted them down and read them cover to cover, again and again.

Each volume contains an amazing collection of magazine and newspaper clippings collected by a amateur magician from 1900 to the 1930′s. Bound in two volumes, these are pieces of magic history, covering all aspects of magic from the beginning of last century, from small close up tricks to the greatest Magicians of the time revealing their secrets.
Now very delicate, each volume has been carefully scanned in Hi-res.  And now the two volumes are coming to you in blog format. Take a look at the index of articles for a taster of what’s to come.

I hope you enjoy reading the articles as much as I have.
