MagicSeen Magazine Issue 38 May 2011 - INSTANT DOWNLOAD


Availability: Instant delivery

John Bannon's approach to card magic is thoughtful and intelligent, and so it is a genuine pleasure to have him on our issue 38 cover. John is kept company by young Scottish mindreader Colin McLeod who has been receiving great reviews for his original one man show.

Ever wanted to win a major magic competition? well, we get three high achievers(Marc Oberon, Nicholas Einhorn and Peter Wardell) to tell you exactly how to do it. We also find out what the Fellowship Of Christian Magicians get up to behind closed doors, plus our spies at the 8th South Tyneside Convention report back on the goings-on in the North East.

The Netherlands has provided the magic world with a long line of truly world class performers such as Tommy Wonder and Fred Kaps,
and Fritz Alkemade takes us on a tour to prove the point. George Luck throws his internet spotlight on Vanishing Inc, while three more creative magicians provide entries in the 2011 Masterclass Award.
