Life of the Party: A Visual History of the S.S. Adams Company Makers of Pranks & Magic for 100 Years
In celebration of their 100th year in business, the S.S. Adams company released this beautiful pictorial history of their novelty items. These are all the pranks that seemed so wonderful in the ads in the comic, but were so disappointing when you saw them in real life. From Sneezing Powder to the Whoopie Cushion to the Smoking Donkey, Adams was the originator and all the others were imitators. Filled with color pictures of the actual items, rarely seen promotional materials and even a comic biography of S.S. Adams himself, this book is a must have for anyone who loves novelties. Written and compiled by Kirk Demarais with a foreword by graphic novel legend Chris Ware. You'll finally get to see all the stuff you could never talk your mom and dad into buying for you.
In the world of magic, the secret is told when the trick is sold. Accordingly, Magic Inc. has a strict no-refund policy.

For this reason, we do not issue refunds and we do not exchange product that is in working order. However, if the merchandise should be defective, we will gladly replace it with a non-defective version of the same trick. No exceptions.
