Just wanted to let everyone know that Steve Forte's brand new book chronicling his entire gambling collection is going on sale September 1, 2022.

It contains over 2600 color photographs and is a fantastic wealth of information for any collector or magician.

You can find more information at www.steveforte.com or www.gamblingsleightofhand.com. Sample pages are provided so that you can see the layout and format.

PS: I was fortunate enough to help proofread the book so if you have any questions that aren't answered at one of the above two sites, feel free to ask

That's a generous helping of sample pages on his website, and it gives a solid picture of the tone of the book.

I had thought that this book was largely taken from his auction catalog, but I note that there is specific text in the sample pages in which S.F. makes note of "when I sold my gambling collection".
Does the book only have partial text from the auction catalog Jason, or is it entirely re-written?

The official VCA auction catalog from October of 2009 doesn't hold a candle to this book. Gambling Collectibles is light-years ahead of it, both in terms of photography and written details. However, if you are fortunate enough to have seen one of Steve's informal and privately produced "catalogs," then yes there are a lot of similarities between that and Gambling Collectibles.

Thank you kindly.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
