Does anyone have any info about Fred Robinson?
I heard a lot about him and his card technique.
Is there any material on his work?

I've understand that there's a book in the works. I believe Peter Duffie may be involved.

I recently learned about the book. I don't know what Martin Breese will produce, but as a former pupil of Fred Robinson, I can witness that he was a true master magician and an extremely lovable person. Since previous Martin Breese production were of very high quality, I'm very impatient to be in January.

Martin's task is not easy for Fred despite is impeccable technique was a believer in naturalness in magic, misdirection and feints. His idol was John Ramsay; his friends were numerous but Eric Mason, Bob Read and Pat Page were especially close ones. Apart from me, I know that he also helped Walt Lees in maturing his magic.

I still miss the malicious smile in his eyes over his half moon glasses and Eric's latest trick with the most unexpected little prop. What a marvelous bunch of kind people and great magicians!

I know that I'm not the only one to remember and miss Fred. Thank you Martin for doing the work on Fred's magic.
