Magic knowledge that lasts...

Hidden in magic books are the secrets of magic. Because magic books are produced in small quantities, new magic books are expensive. However, used magic books can be acquired at a reasonable price. Our job is to make sure these used magic books will travel from one magician to another. We are offering a large choice of used magic books, mostly on card magic and mentalism, plus a nice selection of reputable new ones. Since 1994, we sold thousands of books, to hundreds of satisfied customers, in 25 different countries.
Many questions arise when we talk about the memorized deck. And answers are needed to choose the stack that best suits you. In this section we discuss in details the various aspects of a memorized deck. Among others, various memorization methods are presented. You can also learn more about the history of card systems and memorized decks. Informations are given about The Six-hour Memorized Deck. Plus, users of the Joyal Stack will enjoy the page devoted to practice.
Magic historians will be delighted by The Joyal Index. This reference work goes through the card tricks created by magicians such as Annemann, Nikola, Ponsin, Vernon, and many others. The unique strength of The Joyal Index is its genealogy of tricks. There are more than 15,000 cross-references tracing the origins of a trick and its evolution as it has passed from one magician to the next. You wil also find in this section hints to organize your magic book library.
Finding the price of used magic books is far from being an exact science. Many factors must be considered. This is why we produced a guide that hopefully will help you. It is also a great tool to evaluate a magic book library. The on-line access is free for subscribers to our newsletter or can be purchased in a printed format.
