These 2014 London Lecture Notes by Jim Steinmeyer are two separate lectures, sold together. The Molecules of Magic is a collection of favorite effects with cards, cue cards, a bottle, a glass of confetti (from the book Device and Illusion) and A Case of Collusion, an amazing card prediction. The lecture includes three new effects, published here for the first time: Co-conspirators, Gobbledygook, and The Emperor’s New Deck. Fully illustrated. Also included: Too Dumb to Ask the Right Question is “a lecture on magic history for magicians who don’t really care about magic history,” a fascinating view of the personalities, problems and inspirations that we encounter looking back at magic. Told with personal insights, it’s a tribute to the art of magic, as realized by the study of its past. These notes consist of the full lecture, illustrated with color photographs. Two separate sets of notes (sold only as a pair), 20 pages in each booklet.
