GREAT ILLUSIONS OF MAGIC, 2 VOLS.
Read about the great illusions of magic and actually build them once you have this 2 volume set of books by Byron G. Wels. The first volume talks about each illusion as it is presented to the audience, with an outline of how the illusion works. The second volume contains actual working drawings of the illusion for building. Included are: Substitution Trunk, The Buzz Saw, Thin Model Sawing, The Monster Guillotine - 107 illusions and plans in all. Vol 1 - 308 pages, Vol 2 - 107 sets of plans. A gigantic two volume set that covers just about every illusion known to man. 107 illusions to be exact (including the thin model sawing). One volume is the explanations of the effects, the other is complete shop plans (that you can really build from). A great bargain of illusions.
