I have just located a few copies of this out of print book .
Brand new, still in shrinkwrap.
Every once in a while, I read a book that is just so good, so informative, and so nicely written, I just HAVE to let my customers know about it. Of course everyone has been raving about this book but now it is my turn.
If you EVER wanted to perform stand up magic, this book is an absolute goldmine. I can honestly say that no performing magician can pass this book up. Years ago, when the Books of Wonder were published, I stated that these were possibly the best books written in my lifetime. Now I have another one.I'll let the description tell the story:
Roy Benson By Starlight
by Levent and Todd Karr
Roy Benson was a legendary performer: a brilliant magician whose ingenious techniques baffled his peers, a superb manipulator, and a daring comedy magician considered far ahead of his time. In Roy Benson by Starlight, you can finally learn his most sought-after secrets.
The book includes over fifty incredible effects and sleights, including the famous Benson Bowl Routine, Chinese Sticks, Long Salt Pour, Billiard Balls, Linking Rings, Miser’s Dream, card moves, coin effects, stage magic, close-up, and comedic routines.
You'll also learn from Benson’s essays on presentation and showmanship and the complete text of Benson’s lost book The Second Oldest Profession and his scarce Benson on Magic booklet.
Roy Benson by Starlight also features a complete biography of Roy Benson and an entire section on Benson's teacher, Nate Leipzig, with twenty Leipzig effects, Leipzig's autobiography, and dozens of rare Leipzig photos.
