The Café's own Larry Barnowsky will be releasing a new book this summer and from what I have learned from his temporary website there is a large variety of material geared to the average magician. I have his first book 21st Century Coin Mechanics and that book was of high quality in content and construction. This book is bigger and covers magic with dice, cards, bills, balls, coins, rings etc.

Sponge ball and ring work is always of my interest.
I'll keep an eye out.

Thanks for the update.

The photos on the website look great. I'm looking for a new book with a variety of magic that's not just cards. This fits the bill. I emailed you to reserve a book.

I'll be offering special deals for Café members when the book comes out: Target date Aug 31, 07

I recently added two extra chapters at the end of the book for the coin enthusiasts. One requires no sleight of hand and the other does and both are things you will use.

UPDATE:

The graphic artist has finished the layout of the 28 chapters and is now working on the dustjacket and the gold imprint on the cover. This hardbound book should run about 240 pages (8 1/2 x/ 11 inches). We're almost finished filming the DVD. It will run about 95 minutes with detailed teaching as well as some complete performances. I expect the book to go to the printer in mid July and be ready to ship (with DVD) before Aug 31, 07.

Any hint as to how much magic will be with coins?

Of the 28 chapters, 7 include magic using coins. Two of the effects using coins require no sleight of hand. There are effects also with cards, bills, dice, ropes, cords, finger rings, harness rings, balls, original apparatus you can build, Scrabble tiles, card flourishes, etc. You don't need my previous book, 21st Century Coin Mechanics, to learn or perform the coin effects in this book except for Ch 24. All moves are explained in detail with over 400 sharp b/w photos and a 95 minute high quality video DVD. The DVD is mainly a teaching DVD but there are are complete performances as well including the effect that is the title of the book, Kingdom of the Red.

UPDATE:

I just signed the contract with my printer and I will be offering 50 Special Limited Editions in Arizona Bonded Leather. These will come with the 95 minute Companion DVD and are priced at $100 for the book and DVD. This will be on a first come first serve basis. For these, you can order them from my website.
http://www.geocities.com/larrybarnowsky/kotrpricelist5.html

I will not be reserving them as I do with the regular book prior to publication. The target date for publication is Aug. 31. The regular hardcover book and DVD sell for $60 directly from me.

Update for KOTR:

We're on schedule. The printer gets the pdfs of the book and dustjacket this weekend. We're going with red leather for the special edition and red cloth for the regular edition. We're still shooting for Aug 31 as the date we plan on shipping books. Once I see the galleys, I'll be placing a banner to run on the Café for several months and print ads in magic magazines to follow. The DVD goes to the duplicator next week.

Thanks for your support and encouragement.

Thanks for the order. The Magic Café and it's members have been wonderful supporters of my work. In the coin forum and the book review forum you'll see banners for the book, Kingdom of the Red. They help keep the Café going and at the same time advertise my new book/DVD.

UPDATE:

1. My printer has informed me that they will be shipping Kingdom of the Red to me Aug 31. I've asked them to split the shipment and send a partial shipment by overnight delivery so I can mail out the books ASAP to those who have already ordered. My target for shipping was Aug 31 but it looks like I'll be shipping in the first week of September.

2. The DVD is being replicated. This will be a 90+ minute DVD which will play on all DVD players and computers. The face of the DVD features artwork from the bookcover. I should have the DVDs next week.

3. I'm selling on my website (page 4) some accessories which are for effects in the book. I'm offering them because these items are hard to come by so I purchased them in bulk. You'll find high quality velvet rope (Wedding Ring Redux) and a heavy plated 3 inch ring (Comedy Rope and Ring). Soon I will also be offering the Time Tunnel Coin Prop and gaffs that go with it for the effect Gateway Through Space and Time. The Time Tunnel is hand made and my supplier will be getting them to me later this month.

Thanks for your interest,

Larry

For the coin and card effects in your new book, do you need any special gaffs?

BJ,

In Chapter 7, Gateway Through Space and Time uses a custom coin prop which I teach you how to make. It also uses some basic gaffs that you may already have or can obtain from a magic dealer. I will have a limited supply of the 2 coin gaffs that you'll need and soon you will be able to buy them from my website. The coin tunnel prop will also be available from my website soon. I'm waiting on a shipment of some materials from a supplier. I make the time tunnel coin prop myself.

In Chapter 2, Binary Prediction, there is a gaff that you may already have but if not it's inexpensive and readily obtainable.

Only one of the card effects require any gaffed cards. I'm sure most of you have these (like a DB).
