Patrick Page - Magic Page by Page
new (last) book by the late Patrick Page – “Magic Page by Page”. A big book, 327 pages, beautifully produced with plenty of photographs and illustrations covering, in the author’s own words, “the actual tricks I made a living from”. Also included, of course, are a great number of effects that Patrick sold over the years as a dealer.
Here’s the chapter breakdown:
Chapter 1 Cards

Chapter 5 Miscellaneous – Sponge Balls, Rope, Silks etc

As might be expected, the book is full of the wisdom of Patrick Page, written in his usual style. Containing many totally new, never before published effects created during the final years of his life, and favourites long associated with his name, this book is a must for lovers of entertaining magic. Edited by Matthew Field, designed by Michael Albright and produced by Patrick’s family, they have produced a wonderful tribute to one of the finest magicians of our time.
