I'm going to help out a few magicians during this tough time by giving away six copies of my book. It is a random drawing - here's a link to what you need to do:

"I seriously love the disarming flexibility of Mick Wilson's SDP...one of those rare card-handling procedures that exemplifies the concept of 'why run when no one is chasing you'. SDP is an open-handed utility tool that conjurers will use to great advantage when creating new effects in the years to come."

The 2019 Magic Café Book of the Year Award goes to:

I just saw this - how nice! Thank you all for your kind comments. The second printing of the book has arrived in California, but is being delayed at the port by the virus situation. To those of you who may be frustrated that your favorite shop does not have a copy - they will have copies pretty soon (and we want to support the shops, both physical and non-physical).

I have some copies of the first printing available, but if you live outside the U.S. it will be much, much cheaper to purchase the book over there due to Murphy's Magic excellent service.

And the two most important things:

1) Stay safe, calm, and kind.

2) There were many lovely books put out this year. I was proud to be in their company and I urge you to build your library with their work as well.

Thanks again. This made my day.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to travel plans changing in relation to current events, some new First Printing copies of Interpreting Magic have made their way to Europe without me. For this reason I will give a discount on the book to FOUR EUROPEANS, and send the book postpaid anywhere in Europe for 50 euros.

I can only do this four times.

If you would like to take advantage of this offer, do NOT order from my site. You need to contact me directly at david@davidregal.com

Thanks,

David
