I'm one of the lucky few who got to proofread this book. My first impression was just how many tricks there were using different items, not just the usual cards and coins. The very next thought was just how solid and visual so much of this unique magic was.

If you are looking for truly solid, high impact magic with non typical items, you will find loads of effects for you in Sessions.

And as others have stated, the way it reads in real time is a great direction for magic books to strive.

Kudos to Josh and Joel!!!

I went to visit my brother in Raleigh last week, well I knew that Joel lived in that area as well so that was another reason for going there. Anyway, Joel had an advance copy of Magic Magazine (July) where he has taken over the talk about tricks section with his magic. He showed me several items from the issue and stuff from his new book as well. Joel is not only a fun guy to be around but he has some really fun magic as well. It was great being able to session with the 'Session' man himself. Keep your eyes peeled for this book!

I don't think they have been sent out yet, although I may be wrong. Josh has ALWAYS been very prompt and attentive...I have no doubt he will shoot them out to us as soon as he gets them.

Looking forward to it too! I have seen Joel do much of what is in the book and it ain't nothing to take lightly.

Hi guys,

I believe the book is back from the printers any day now.

It's a great read with some amazing material.

The excerpt is outstanding, but what really struck me is the quality of the photos - very clear, and beautifully done. The title page credits Stephen Heinzelmann with the photos; he did a great job.

Hello all,

Update on Session: After a slight, unexpected delay at the printers, the books have apparently been shipped to me. So…we’re still planning a same-day turnaround for all orders. You’ll hear more when I know more.

On the photos: So glad you noticed! There’s a lot going on with those photos. Here’s the thinking behind them.

I wanted the photos to do more than convey the mechanics behind each effect. I wanted them to help tell the story. That’s why they match the venue, right down to the restaurant label on the glasses. Even Joel’s watch matches the time in the book.

The photos themselves were taken by an absolute expert, Stephen Heinzelmann, of Raleigh, NC. I knew they would be good. I didn’t know they would be THAT good.

Enter Ben Harris. What he did was unbelievable and, again, unusual for a magic book. He rated the photos based on both importance and artistic value, and varied the sizes accordingly. So, a trick might have ten photos. Four of those might be on the same page. But then one photo—an important one or a pretty one—might occupy a full two-page spread, bigger and more beautiful than the others. Then a photo might be wrapped around text, etc. I think this layout choice keeps every page different and exciting, and is a new way of conveying magic. Thanks to Ben and Stephen!
