Just an FYI item here...while at the Oklahoma City Cavalcade of Magic I purchased the first two volumes of "Magical Renaissance: A Modern Wizard's Grimoire" on CD. The books were written by Malaki Dracwin...who makes some mighty fine custom wooden wands...and there are some really clever, off beat stage magic and illusion ideas and plans in volume Two.
Volume Two also contains what I would call a foundational library for all things theatrical like building set pieces, flats, cutting mirrors, metal work, makeup, and even pyros!
Its quite a surprising body of work. While the theatre craft info is not exhaustive or terribly in-depth it does cover a lot of things that can stimulate a lot of thinking! I am enjoying these books on disk very much and thought some of you who are looking for an ocassional random "find" might want to check this one out too!
"What's your drug?" she asked. "Hope" he said, "The most addicting one of all."

It does sound interesting. I have several stagecraft books from college and still refer to them from time to time.

Greetings!
I have just registered, and would like to answer your question. First of all, thank you for the complements!

I am Malaki Dracwin (aka David Swanson), the author of the two books discussed: Volumes I&II of Magical Renaissance, A Modern Wizard's Grimoire.
Volume I is A Timeline of Magic (traces magical history from 50,000 BCE to 2000 CE.
Volume II is Theatrical Magic

Both are pdf that are fully searchable, and can be acquired by emailing me (wizardsworkshopp@gmail.com). MAGIC MAGAZINE said that searching through 52,000 years of magical history as "addictive".

Coming soon: Volume III, Making Magic.

These are the books that I wished that I had when learning magic.

I look forward to reading your posts! Looks like a great forum!

Book 1: https://www.stevensmagic.com/shop/magica......-cd-rom/
Book 2. https://www.stevensmagic.com/shop/magica......-cd-rom/

Product Description (Volume 1) (as described on Steven's magic)

A Timeline of Magic (A Modern Wizard’s Grimoire) chronologically traces the history of magic from 50,000 BCE-2000 CE, is heavily referenced, and includes a glossary. This work is the result of more than a decade of research that shows how magic, through its many incarnations and tribulations, has developed into the art form it is today. The reader will also see how this most illusive of crafts spawned the development of such areas of human endeavor as art, theater, music, philosophy and religion. Available for both PC and MAC, this e-book is on CD ROM, complete with introduction, references, and glossary. Also searchable in both PDF and Access database forms. Having seen this project, we are very excited to bring it to our esteemed clients! The quality of Malaki’s work will spoil you. We back it 100%!

Product Description (Volume 2) (as described on Steven's magic)

Theatrical Magic (A Modern Wizard’s Grimoire) will teach the magician about the various arts of the theater and their roll within the show. The magus will learn how to build flats, stairs and platforms, then how to paint them to create original sets of their own. This book will also teach how to design and build special effects, as well as how to perform many of the tasks required in technical theater, such as soldering and turning on the lathe. Magical effects are not neglected, as several effects are taught from creation to performance. These effects include the Desert Sands, a low cost Asrah levitation, and exclusive effects such as the Omni Table (a replacement for the thin-model table) and a working sword in the stone. Available for both PC and MAC, this e-book is on CD ROM, complete with introduction, references, and glossary. Let’s face it – there is such a shortage regards to products that deal with the subtle importance of “theatrics.” The consummate performer understands the power of achieving the “total” package. You will be on the road do doing just that with this item. Having seen this project, we are very excited to bring it to our esteemed clients! The quality of Malaki’s work will spoil you. We back it 100%!
Kind Regards
