Issued on the 15th of March 2005 for the Centenary of the Magic Circle.

I have been lucky enough to meet Fay Presto a couple of times. The first occasion I witnessed some magic/close up and the second time to have a longer chat. 

A lovely lady who was very chatty and ready to impart knowledge. While I already had Fay's signature on a postal first day cover for the Magic Circle, I was able to get this signed card in person. 

Possibly one of my favourite famous signatures with the top hat!. Thank you Fay.

Fay Presto Lecture Notes

Improved picture coming soon.

After attending the Fay Presto lecture at the Magic Circle which was amazing, Fay was selling her notes. 

Certainly a lot of interest in buying the Fay Presto "Performers Workshop manual" in the style of a Haynes car manual. Fay being a bit of a lover of cars.

The thing that strikes my about these notes is the care and attention to detail as it is nice to have a detailed auto biographical section as well.

The book is inscribed by Fay with a message to me along with he classic Fay signature that includes a top hat design.

Jamie Allan Signed Playing Card

I have always followed Jamie Allan, the iMagician and his work. As he works mainly overseas, it is difficult to see him perform in the UK.

 

I was able to meet Jamie when purchasing a copy of his new book "Everything".  I managed to set a signed first edition with certificate. And while collecting the book, I was able to get a selfie and this signed card for my collection. 

 

An interesting performer who I would watch his iMagician live on TV. During the BMC, I was able to watch his lecture as well which was really enlightening.

Justin Willman Signed "Magic In Real Life Tour" Poster

This was one of two posters available to purchase from Justin's online store.  This particular post was for a tour within the US between 2019 and 2020 that of course got cut short due to Covid.
