I remember when I was in Japan one of the Tenyo guys showing me a new handling for Prison Box. He basically violently shook the unit in the air to disguise the secret action to make the ring jump compartments. Looked good but cant remember who exactly showed me. Was years ago. Again with Mini-Morphosis, instead of a curtain, a jumbo card was placed in front of the box to hide the change. A magnet was stuck to the back of the card in the right position. Again I don't remember who showed it to me. What this is leading to is I bet there are tons of new handling ideas for existing Tenyo. Maybe worthy of its own thread ��

I just returned from Japan, where I interviewed all the major creators of Tenyo's tricks. Each interview was four hours long and very detailed. I also interviewed the founder of the Tenyo company, Akira Yamada.

The book will contain new handlings and tips, photos and videos of prototypes (both produced and not produced) many tricks from the Tenyo creators that have never been published in English, reproductions from the Japanese catalogues, and much more, including at least two DVDs tipped onto the inner covers (the way I did with the Berglas book)

Each book will come with an envelope containing the props for at least four tricks by those who have created tricks for Tenyo. The book should be between 300 and 400 pages and in full color.

There will be a deluxe edition with a page signed by a dozen members of the Tenyo creative team, including all the original members (Hideo Kato, Shigeru Sugawara, Hiroshi Kondo, Takuya Yoshizawa, Tomoyuki Shimomura, Tooru Suzuki, and Dr. Sawa). The deluxe edition will also contain props for two additional tricks.

How about getting some / all of the original creators to sign them?

Nashville,

From Richard's post above:

Because of the level of interest, I have decided to begin compiling a list of people who want a deluxe edition.
If you're interested in being added to the list, please email me at moobooks@verizon.net.
I will sell only one copy per person. The price will probably be $300 or $400.
Do NOT send any money yet, just your name so I can add it to the list.
You will be notified when the book is available.

For those who are interested to add their name to Richard's list, just make sure to delete the last dot of his email address above... So his correct address is: moobooks@verizon.net

The more folks who buy the deluxe editions, the more cool stuff I can put in them. Economics, you know. Smile

I was reading through the thread and was thinking this will be great to have until I got to the post saying it will cost $300-$400. Am I the only one taken aback by this price? What will the standard version cost?
