1 review for Albo 16 – The Ultimate Okito Encore by Robert J. Albo

  1. Andy Martin

    I’m not sure if there is any other single person who has done more for Magic Collecting and the preservation of Magic History than the wonderful and humble Dr. Robert Albo. During a span of 38 years from 1973 – 2012 he produced 16 oversized volumes filled with photos, videos, descriptions, articles and history (With the 16th volume on Okito being released after his untimely death in 2011).

    I never knew Dr. Albo, and didn’t begin to read his books until 2018 but it is obvious to anyone reading these truly beautiful books how much he loved magic. Every article I have ever read by him or about him speaks of his generosity to others and his love and passion for magical apparatus. His preservation of the art of magic by remembering the great magical creators and their effects through detailed and meticulous cataloging and demonstrating of their works is legendary.

    If you are ever lacking inspiration just open up any one of his books and you will be transformed into a magical mystery world, filled with amazing characters and craftsmen surrounded by the most wonderful props you will ever see. Dr. Albo had a remarkable impact on magic collecting and the history of our art that is unlikely ever to be repeated and his books will continue to inspire and enthrall collectors and magicians for decades to come.
