Learn. Conjure. Mystify.
Welcome to MAGICIAN!
"There's a lot to say about the wonderful art of magic, and we hope to contribute by providing you with a quality magazine that brings new life into our world. Just as Street Magic was something that hadn't been seen before, we hope that MAGICIAN
can take that process even further by offering you new writers, new effects, and new knowledge.
Not that "New" is always a necessary thing. We will also be revisitng old places, as well, by paying respect to the intense and rich history that magic has. From dustbowl carnival years to Victorian drawing rooms all the way to current New York streets, we want to bring you to places where magic began and continues to be.
But first, some magic...
The inaugural issue is one the that is simply full of tricks and effects to get you started. After all, what kind of magicians would we be if we didn't have anything to demonstrate? And in this issue, you will find some of the greatest minds in the business offering you everything from chicken wing magic (no kidding) to some amazing card effects. And, best yet, these are all things that you can, and hopefully will, go out and perform. And, that brings us to something that has a special place in my heart...
The performance. As primarily a performer, I realize how important it is not just learn technique but how crucial it is to learn how to apply those techniques to real world situations. And that's what I hope to bring to you with this magazine. Our motto of, "Learn. Conjure. Mystify." Is exactly what we want you to do and I hope to contribute with the "mystify" part. Whether it's a Magic Friday or a piece on The Approach, I believe, that through this magazine, we can all teach and help each other to becoming the greatest magicians the world has ever seen. Let's do it together." - Jamie Grant
