Hofzinser Books - WOW

Ok, pardon my excitement. The 2 Hofzinser books arrived while I was in Nashville, but now that I'm back I got to open the box and I'm just dumbfounded. I've not started reading them yet, but I am expecting a real treat. Volume 1 is a more complete history of Johann Hofzinser than has ever been written before. In fact, it corrects some errors that have been made in the history books in the past. Volume 2 is filled with tricks, card tricks mostly and I can't wait to dive into these books!  I will write a review when I finish reading them.

There is a Volume 3 in the works on all of Hofzinser's Parlor Magic. I do not have any idea when when that will be published.

  1. Already dipping in and they are indeed fantastic. An amazing talent, and considered a real artist, not just a variety performer. Also composed poetry and music - who knew?

    1. I was looking through them last night. Every page is another revelation. I'm trying to finish up another book though before I devote my time to these. Very excited to get started!
