I'm Ian Barradell 34 years old from Derby.

I've been studying magic for nearly 30 of those years.

My passion is card magic and I'm most recognized for my extensive work with the memorised stack (Simon Aronson's).

I collect magic books (I have a library of over 1000 books) and I live and breath for the knowledge.

I look forward to taking part in the Magic Cafe. Smile

Welcome to The Magic Cafe Ian,
I know you will enjoy your time here.

Of course, your life as you have known it will be gone, food will have to be brought in, friends and family will wonder where you are, but the Cafe will be the wiser!

I look forward to reading your insights on magic, and could only dream of browsing your quite extensive magic library.

It is wonderful to have you here at the Cafe. I look forward to your posts. I believe you have much to share given the length of time that you have been practicing magic. Enjoy your time here.

Wow! That is some longevity! Who else can claim almost 90% of their life doing Magic.

And Man 1000 books in your library! That is more than a wee bit of bedside reading you have there!

Welcome! And thanks for joining us! We look forward to your participation!

If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.

I dont know...but I'm thinking that a nappy could be a good vanishing tool...and one where no one would be keen to look...

[nb. This message does no imply I was wearing nappies at age 4]

Welcome! Another Ian, my, my. If you get time, please drop over to the mentalists' table and say hello. It's the corner table by the window under the sign that says
"A Penny For Your thoughts," but I sensed you knew that.

Hi Ian B, if you are from Derby/Newport it's
about a 1/2 hour from Waterville, so if you want to chat or exchange tricks I would be glad to do so. Smile

WOWWW Smile Smile May I envy the book collection you have!!! Although I am a pageant, the number you have is beyond my dreams about a single topic.
Performing at the age of four, is a fairy tale... Was any of your parents in the business??? Smile

Nice to Welcome you to the Cafe, hope one day I maybe see your collection in person and meet you (no, I do not mean that I want to meet you for the sake of books) Smile Smile

magical regards.
Magically Yours,
