This is a magic question really and should therefore perhaps not be in "Not very magical, still...", but I don't know where else to put it:

I'm trying to combine my studies of magic and Spanish by reading magic literature in Spanish. But I don't know where I can find the treasures of magic literature in that language.

I know of Tienda Magia, but their shipping prices are rather astronomical (Starting on 25 Euros to ship one deck of cards within Europe, and so on).

My goal is to find a "must read" book or two which hasn't been translated into English. (Because if it has, I might as well read that in half the time or faster). But something that is perhaps corner stone literature in the Spanish card magic movement. If that exists. Essential reading.

So I was wondering what online sources were good and trustworthy, and what works are considered absolutely essential. Something by Vincent Canuto? Or Ramón Gioboó perhaps? Ascanio's books come to mind, but they are available in English as are many of Tamariz' books.

Not looking for beginners' manuals, but material either on slightly advanced card magic, memorized deck magic or presentation philosophy.

You could try Bazar de Magia or Tango Magic in Argentina

A friend once visited Juan Tamariz' shop in Spain. I don't know if it's on the web, but that might be a good place to start.

Also check here:

Sociedad Española de Ilusionismo (SEI) and some "Círculos Mágicos" at http://www.dirac.es/sei/circulos.htm

Try Magicus in Barcelona. Or, also in Barcelona, Selecciones Magicas.

A web search will give you the details.

Our last magic DVD (Ron Dayton's Rope DVD) Included spanish subtitles, and our next release by Nefesch in December- TelekiNefesch will include the entire book in both English AND Spanish.

Spanish is my mother tongue, so maybe I can help here.
I would visit Bazar de Magia; they have books and also magazines (you may want to check their “Selecciones Mágicas”; it’s an old Spanish magazine of which they still have some issues). When I started learning English I found magazines less intimidating than books. Perhaps it’s cheaper to buy from Argentina than from Europe, I don’t know.
Another source is “Editorial Páginas”, from Spain. http://www.librosdemagia.com Be patient with their site’s absurdly long intro. They are the largest publishing house of magic books in Spanish. The quality of their books is second to none. I’d read books originally written in Spanish. Ascanio is a must-read. Of course Tamariz in his original language is top-notch. Browse their catalogue; they have many things.
Keep in mind that it’s Spain’s Spanish, slightly different to all Latin American “Spanishes” that we speak this side of the Atlantic.
