Best Magic Trick Resources
Links, Free Magic eBooks, Forums, Shops, Videos, etc.
Unfortunately, there are just too many “informational” magic trick sites just out to sell something or pass visitors onto affiliate links.
I also find a lot of magic resource pages are link exchanges rather than someone’s honest opinion of good magic resources.
These are my magic trick bookmarks that I’ve gathered over the years:
(last updated Feb. 11th/ 2013)
Magic Ebooks & Magic Trick Books Online
Herrmann’s Book of Magic – Black Art Fully Exposed – Online version. Originally published in 1903. Dozens of classic magic tricks explained.
(ack… most of my old links I had gathered no longer exist. Will have to do some new research for this section – stay tuned).
Free Magic Trick eBooks – yeah, totally free! Check them out.
Magic Trick Forums, Websites, Articles and other Links
The Magic Cafe Forums – Great forum… and one of the only magic forums in my bookmarks that still exists.
Magic Trick Inventors & Magician Bios – Need to know who invented what trick/illusion/prop? This is the best resource I could find online for magicians biographies, too.
Magic Tricks Reveal Inner Workings of the Brain – Article on Wired.com about magic, illusions and the brain.
