Lithe of build, graceful of tongue and carriage, dark, piercing eyes, and facial features cast from a prince of the underworld, Alexander Herrmann embodied the word "magician." His persona permeated the popular culture of his day, and his image still holds power in our present societal subconscious as the archetypal conjurer. A mesmeric personality both on and off the stage, he was ever the theatrical magician, ever the exhibitor of his craft. The book is intended to be a journey of Herrmann through the lens of his audience, as projected through the newsprint of the day. It does not seek to delve behind the scenes, but to hopefully paint a picture on the canvas of the goal of his craft - mystifying vast audiences of theatrical patrons. A fascinating progression of Herrmann's art and influence, as well as a glimpse of the ubiquitous theater and its value in bygone American culture.
