Jay's Journal:

In this series of essays, Ricky Jay, the celebrated sleight-of-hand artist, actor and "scholar of the unusual," waxes eloquent on such esoteric topics as learned dogs, cheaters at bowling, human levitation, crucifixion for fun and profit and the surprising historical connections between dentistry and legerdemain. Often addressing his readership as "students of deception," Jay imparts an intimate understanding and deep appreciation of the complementary disciplines of lying, cheating and showmanship. You will learned how circus fleas were "trained" to play soccer and pull miniscule chariots; how 19th-century performers "danced" on ceilings; how performing dogs "learned" to spell; and how Alexander Graham Bell found inspiration for the invention of the telephone in an ersatz "mechanical" chess player. Altogether a quirky, spellbinding, delightful volume.


An Exhibit of Failing Dice from the Collections of Ricky Jay recently opened at the Museum of Jurassic Technology. Rosamond Purcell's photographs, in this book, illuminate the mysterious beauty of these curious objects.
