Book: Japan Ingenious

No tax

A translation of a book by Richard Kaufman is always good news. This book is all the more interesting because it opens a window on Japanese magic. Magic that we Western we do not really know ...

Many people rightly wonder what the difference is between the magic created by Japanese magicians and that of Westerners, or even if there is simply a difference. The book "Ingenious Japan" will allow you to find your own answer to this question.

You should know, that just like Dai Vernon in the West, the magician Ton Onosaka is the main source of Japanese magic today. Indeed, Ton Onosaka has passed on its own secrets and has also created an impulse of inspiration, which helps others to create their own secrets.

Through this book, you will discover a collection of effects created by fourteen winners of the Masao Atsukawa Prize as well as the effects of seven guests.

- 64 rounds from 21 Japanese magicians.
- 252 pages and more than 500 illustrations.
- A4 colour format, hard cover.
- French translation: Jean-Jacques Sanvert.
