Author(s): Wilson, Tyler
Publication Summary: 2011, 194 pages
Earlier this year at Winter Carnival, Eric Jones raved to us about
Cherry Villain's debut publication, Reinventing The Real by Tyler
Wilson. He handed us his copy of the book. Upon first glance, it's a
strikingly gorgeous production with two-color printing, spot UV coated
printed case, die-cut wrap, and creative edge bleeding. It feels
luxurious just to hold. We wanted it. And so did the other shops we
talked to about it. Now finally after a long wait, we not only got a
hold of a few copies, but we're one of the only shops that did. H&R
Books secured exclusive rights for the midwest on this elegant book.
Once you get past the physical allure, you'll start to appreciate the
inner beauty. Tyler Wilson has released some of the most breathtaking
magic seen in recent years. In this book, no stone has been left
unturned; not only new plots and new methods, but in fact, new
principles! Rarely has so much innovation been packed between two
covers. The material isn't like that which you find in other books.
It's not just minor variation after minor variation. It's refreshing,
original, deeply-fooling magic. Tyler Wilson is driving magic forward.
Hop in shotgun, and come along for the ride.
Here's what some of the most respected men in magic are saying:
"Reinventing The Real is the best and most exciting book on close-up
magic I've read in a long time. In it Tyler Wilson shows himself
wonderfully inventive, a serious student of his craft and very funny.
The only fault this book has is that I'm not publishing it.”
— Stephen Minch
“There are very few magic books that make me laugh on purpose. This
one did. I have not met Mr. Wilson, but it is clear that he is
impressively well read, and threateningly clever. Had I not read it
first, this material would have fooled me. Thus, I’d probably find it
difficult to like him."
— Max Maven
"Wow! Reinventing The Real has so much variety it could have been
called Kamasutricks. The book is an inspiring read. It's full of
unique presentations, methods, and strong effects. Make room on your
bookshelf and get ready to add to your repertoire."
— Ray Kosby
“Reinventing The Real is a well-written and well-produced book with
great magic, solid methods, terrific presentations and spot on
references and credits.”
— Jason England
We only have a few copies and we don't know when or if we'll be able
to get more, so don't miss your chance.
