The Magic of Johnny Thompson—the epic 663-page, two-volume slipcased set featuring seventy-eight routines with nearly 1,100 images, drawn from a lifetime of magic—is finally bound and sealed … and now signed.
In depth interviews with Johnny Thompsona and Jamy Ian Swiss. Exciting television appearances from Jorge Blass and Darcy Oake.
The long awaited book devoted to the magic of one of the field's most revered performers, creators and mentors is now available for pre-order.
It's a special Take Two this week as Jamy Ian Swiss reflects about the impact his friend and master magician, Lance Burton, has made on the world of magic.
Johnny arrived in the morning and we started to work immediately on his suggestions and ideas.
It was an emotional and difficult time for both of us as we came to the realization that this was our final day with Johnny.
On Tuesday, our day with Johnny started later in the evening as he works with Penn & Teller during the day. To fill that time, Johnny contacted Mac King and made arrangements for us to attend his afternoon show.
As this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with one of the world leaders in magical entertainment, we were both shocked and thrilled for this chance. I have provided a short narrative that highlights some of our most memorable moments and experiences.
