If you’re a magician reading this, you’re probably already familiar with the name Joshua Jay. He’s the author of “Talk about Tricks” in MAGIC magazine, author of “Magic The Complete Course”, and has a slew of other accomplishments to his name. The Complete Course is a great book that I would recommend to anyone who’s just started out in magic, and to anybody who wants to re-look at some the classics. Don’t overlook this “beginner” book though, it includes some classics like Crazy Man’s Handcuffs.
Today Joshua Jay launched a brand new website and online magic retailer. I’m not sure why we need ANOTHER magic retailer, but, they do have some lofty goals how they are going to be different than whats already out there. To prove their serious – Joshua Jay released a 92 page eBook – all for free. It’s called “Over, Under” and is written for those serious about their magic who are under 18 years old. The first section is for the student of magic, and the latter half is for the parents to read. Check out the website to download your free copy. I won’t bother with all the details of the book since you can get it for free. You do have to register on the site to get your download, but from what I’ve read so far, its worth it.
