Build Your Own Illusions by Jim Sommers - Book
Jim Sommers (1934-2018) was a full time professional magician who specialized in illusions. Throughout his career he always used a few illusions in his show that he built himself. His philosophy in designing, building, and thinking about illusions is based on the presupposition that many magicians live in small apartments, drive small cars, and have to handle their props by themselves. The tricks in this book are designed to fit into the life-style of these magicians.
