Since the turn of the century, the name Blackstone has been synonymous with the world of magical illusion. First Harry Blackstone, Sr., known as The Great Blackstone, wowed audiences in the heyday of America's fascination with magic, perfecting such now-classic illusions as the Dancing Handkerchief, the Buzz Saw, and the Floating Light Bulb. Then came Harry, Jr., who was first billed at the age of six months as the disappearing child in his father's show, and who continued the tradition with an act that was called "the most spectacular traveling illusion show ever" (Newsweek) and "pure magic!" (Time). Now, based on Harry Blackstone, Jr.'s lifetime devotion to magic, this book unveils the history, science and art of one of the oldest entertainment arts. Through Blackstone's eyes, you'll explore the long and colorful history of the art of illusion--from the temples of ancient Egypt to the vaudeville stages of the 1920s, to the Broadway, Las Vegas and television shows of today. In addition you'll find profiles of magics greatest performers, discussion of the science and psychology of magic, and tales of the fascinating Blackstone story, with revealing anecdotes and rare photographs. This book also includes complete illustrated instructions for performing 20 classic magic routines.
