Two years in the making…

The product no greedy magic company wants you to know about or is willing to give you.
368 magic books, 30,000+ pages of content, 91 professional commentaries, an extensively detailed index with 4429 effects, authors featuring. Houdini, Erdanase, Tarbell, Hugard, and MORE—this is a veritable ‘cup of life’ to any and all amateur or professional magicians.

Dear friend,

We were up late when we found it. 

At the time, we were desperately trying to design something to build our email list and we couldn’t find a resource valuable enough.

We’d been scratching our heads for weeks, desperate to find something that could set us apart from everyone else.

It all came down to this...

...two magical words:

Public Domain.

For those that are wondering, the definition of public domain is this:

“The state of belonging or being available to the public as a whole, especially through NOT being subject to copyright or other legal restrictions.”

Ever heard this expression before?

“Want to find something new, read something old. Want to find something old? Read something new…”

This phrase could not be more accurate than it is in modern day magic.

That night, two years ago, we discovered that many of the best magic books EVER WRITTEN—Tarbell’s course on magic, Expert at the Card Table by Erdanase and Bobo's Coin Magic are ALL public domain.

Yes, you heard us right, just between these three books nearly 3,000 pages of incredible magic content is simply bouncing around the internet.

(and hardly anyone is using or knows about it…)

Here’s why:

The content isn’t easy to find (you have to know EXACTLY what to search for and be aware of which sources are reputable and which aren’t)

Many magic companies make NO effort to ensure this stuff is readily available (but they do profit off product after product that uses effects taken directly from these books and given a ‘modern twist’)

People don’t know where to start (300 classic magic books is an overwhelming number, and it can be hard to find the really good stuff)

The magic companies that HAVE collected these books sell them at a ludicrous price and they’re vastly behind the times ($80 for a CD ROM is kind of a joke…)

Here’s what we’ve done to tackle this issue:

We’ve put all the books in one place (let's not even talk about the 1000’s of hours this has taken, we’ll get PTSD…) 

We’ve written a commentary for all the ones we think are worth starting with (91 to be exact)

We’re making this accessible to the entire magic world (let’s just say our price tag doesn’t even get close to $80…)

So enough talk, you probably want to ‘see the money!’

Here are the 91 classic books for which we thought it was worth writing a commentary and adding a blurb.

This list will continue to grow even after the release of this product.

But for now, we didn't want to overwhelm you, the other 277 magic books all have links to their PDF and can be flipped through at your own pleasure...

(but honestly, 91 is more than enough to get you started!)

KEY: The ones that are in bold are those we think are particularly worth your while… 

Here are just 3 out of the veritable 1000’s of effects and routines you’ll learn from this treasure trove of content:

An incredible force by Theodore Annemann found on page 3 of ‘202 Methods of Forcing’ that is not only invisible but would make a fantastic ‘out’ for any good magic routine…

A collection of stunning flourishes and fancy card work taught by T. Nelson Down’s on page 29 of his book ‘The Art of Magic’ that has been flabbergasting audiences for over a decade.

A mentalism routine from Houdini himself found on page 52 of his book ‘Paper Magic’ that’s so audacious your audience would never even believe the method if you told it to them…

As we said, 3 of THOUSANDS of effects, routines, and pieces of theory you’ll pick up

studying under the greatest magicians who’ve ever lived.

And speaking of thousands of effects - thanks to the hard work of an amazing contributor James Marshall - you'll also be getting an index of each and EVERY trick contained in the 91 magic books for which we've produced commentary. 

BONUS: 'The Index' (worth $200+) 

4429 Effects At Your Finger Tips

Just to give you an idea of how big of a deal that is - here's an image of just one page from the index...

This is just 36 of the 4429 effects that have been indexed, that you can instantly reference based on category, book, the effect name, and page. 

Truly this makes this already mammoth resource 100x more valuable. 

Looking for card magic? Instantly find it! 

Only interested in learning coin magic today? We got that! 

This is the ultimate study companion to the book project. 

Now you’re probably thinking, this all sounds a little too good to be true!

You’re going to give me 368 magic books, with commentary, all in one place?

The price tag on this baby has to be ridiculous.

(and I’m worried that my expectations are so high at this point, I could only be disappointed)

Well, here’s the thing:

This is about us giving back to the magic community.

(we'll even be donating 10% of all profits to a charity of our choice!) 

We decided that if no one was going to step up to the plate, as young and underqualified as we may feel—we weren’t going to back down from a challenge that had so much importance.

So in accordance with our usual incredible deals, and our determination to give back…

...we’re making this product: Pay What You Want! ($10 minimum)

Just to put that in perspective - that's $0.10 a book if you only take into account the books with commentaries and $0.02 if you count all the books.

(and a ridiculous $0.002 per effect.)

It's also cheaper than a meal for two and should make this product accessible to ALL magicians. 


You might be wondering, if this is all about giving back, why didn’t you just make this resource free—then everyone could have it!

Yes, the price is low, but it’s still not free???

Here’s why we didn’t do that…

You don’t value the things you don’t pay for.

That’s a fact.

Don't believe us? 

Just think about something you saved for, toiled for, and finally were able to purchase.

(for us right now, we’ve finally got apartments to call our own and it’s the best feeling in the world…)

Wasn’t that just the most valuable object in the world?

Didn’t you just smile every day for a while knowing you finally had what you wanted?

Now think about something you got for free.

However valuable that item is, you simply CANNOT appreciate it in the same way.

So here’s our advice to you, pay however much for this product that will actually make you care.

For us, it takes at least a $100 price tag on a course/resource this big to get us excited about using it!

(and you can bet those courses we’ve paid $1000’s for to get used to each and every day…)

Now of course, we’re not trying to manipulate you into giving us 1000’s of dollars, we’re just saying - be wise in your price point.

If $10 is enough to make you use something, please be our guest, pay the $10 - but if you have a niggle that won’t cut it, please pay more!

(for your sake more than ours...) 

This resource is too valuable to waste away on your shelves for all eternity…

A final note:

We’re so confident this product will be a success that we’re offering a 100% LIFETIME refund guarantee.

If at any point you feel as if you’re disappointed with this resource, please drop us an email and we will refund you instantly. 

Any day, any place, any feeling—you don't even need a real reason.

You want your money back, you will have it.

"We decided not to order out tonight. I am holding my pizza money til black Friday when this is released. Thank you in advance. There's a lot of classic magic books and resources that are available online like the collection you offered for free. Unfortunately many don't have decades of magic experience to separate the wheat from the chaff. This is just what magic needs right now. A curated library with a bit of expert commentary."
