The Magic Magazine (all 26 issues) by Joseph Kardwell

(c. 1974) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Magic Magazine was a mass market monthly magic publication that was started by New York publisher Joseph Kardwell in 1974. There were 26 issues published with the first in December 1974 and the final one in September 1977. The magazine dealt with it’s fair share of publication issues and had four different publishers during its three year run.

The magazine was primarily aimed at new people to magic, part-time hobbyists and enthusiasts but they had a surprisingly strong list of contributing editors and correspondents. Some of these included:

  • Al Flosso
  • Blackstone, Jr.
  • Carlini
  • Corinda
  • Derek Dingle
  • Frank Garcia
  • Harry Lorayne
  • Irving Tannen
  • Karl Fulves
  • Mark Wilson
  • Martin Gardner
  • Milbourne Christopher
  • Randi
  • Ron Macmillan
  • Slydini
  • Tony Spina
  • Walter B. Gibson

Because it was freely available to the public on the shelves of your local newsagent and book store it certainly ruffled some feathers in the magic community. But, when compared with the sort of exposure we have seen on TV, in print, and of course on the Internet in the last thirty years it seems quite tame by today’s standards. 

As a teenager I remember looking forward to each issue and even built my first table based on plans in the June 1977 issue: A Quad-Design Table by Scrivante.  That table saw me through all my early shows  and it wasn’t until I came to America in 1990 and beyond when I started purchasing professionally made tables.  I loved that table, but sadly it didn’t make the trip to America with me 🙁
