More than 1,700 books were consulted, including periodicals that were reprinted in book form. This represents an incredible 175,000 pages of text! Of these 1,700 titles, more than 700 were selected to produce the index (some totally indexed, others partially indexed.)
More than 2,000 magicians are part of The Joyal Index.
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.
The Joyal Index comes as instalments of which four have already been produced.
To keep charges as low as possible, orders are shipped via the surface postal service (small orders in bubble envelopes, large orders in carton boxes).
New rates of the postal service forced us to modify our shipping charges. Low and heavy weight parcels now cost less to ship. Unfortunately, medium weight parcels took the hit. To better serve our customers, we took half the augmentation on our shoulders.
Money orders and personal checks are also accepted, in US or Canadian dollars. Please make payment to the order of Martin Joyal.
