My third book will be published in the Fall of 2011. It is entitled The Book of Destiny.

I have created a temporary web page which has descriptions of 15 of the 45 chapters. The text and photography is complete and is now in the hands of our graphic designer who will lay out the photos with the text in a similar fashion as she did with my second book, Kingdom of the Red.

The book will be hardcover with at least 350 pages and over 750 photos. A companion DVD will come with the book. In addition to the regular edition, there will be a limited edition in leather numbering 50 copies. The same gloss enamel paper used in Kingdom of the Red will be used in The Book of Destiny.

There are a variety of original effects and sleights taught. There are sections on cards, balls, coins, rings, and original apparatus. There is material for beginners, intermediates, and advanced performers.

If you wish to reserve a copy, email me at barnowsky1@aol.com
There is no obligation.
No down payment is needed.
Specify whether you want the regular edition or the special leather limited edition.
I will contact you as soon as the book is available.
Although the book is larger with more material, the price will be the the same as Kingdom of the Red

For any questions, email me at barnowsky1@aol.com or PM me

I just updated my website.

This week I'll be doing the final proofread before it gets to the printer.

The DVD is over two hours long and contains performances and detailed explanations from 17 of the the 44 chapters.

My target date is October 10, 2011 for shipping books. If things go well we may beat that date.

Again, you can order the book now or email me or PM me to reserve the book/DVD. barnowsky1@aol.com

If you want a leather edition, I would suggest you order now. 50 signed and numbered copies only.

For international orders, the shipping is greatly reduced since I will be using Flat Rate Priority Mail at $14 anywhere.

PM or email me for any questions

Thanks Dominique for the order.

Just finished picking out the cloth and leather covers and the textured colored end papers.

The 80 weight gloss enamel paper is the same as used in Kingdom of the Red. I chose the heavier weight glossy paper because the photos are so sharp when viewed on this type of medium.

The printer will be getting the final pdf in about 10 days. They have a 4 week turn around time which would place delivery to me at mid September. My target date is October 10 but I may be shipping before that time.

All books will be shipped out personally by me. I don't use a Fullfillment Service since they can be in some cases unreliable.

Thanks for your interest in the book.
You'll be seeing ads in Genii, MAGIC, and the Magic Café in the near future.
The printer should have the manuscript by next week. So far all is on schedule.

Thanks Peo for the order.

I have placed a two page pdf of the Table of Contents of The Book of Destiny at my website.

To view it, go to this link for the Table of Contents

The Book of Destiny main page also has a link to The Table of Contents.

The chapters are rated with one to three diamonds indicating a relative scale of difficulty. However, there are no impossible or impractical sleights or moves required. One diamond is easy. Two diamonds requires basic sleights. Three diamonds is more challenging or complex.
