Silver Special by Roy Johnson

(c. 1989) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Details: Roy Johnson wrote this scarce book to commemorate his silver wedding anniversary in 1982. But it was never published. Until seven years later when it ”mysteriously surfaced”.

Great magic as you have come to expect from Mr. Johnson! A virtual treasure trove of baffling, practical and entertaining Roy Johnson material. Everything from close-up and cabaret to mind shattering mentalism …

Whether you are a stage or close-up performer, there’s so much to choose from in this fabulous book. Professional magic and mentalism that’s not only baffling, but easy to do.
