Magician of the Week - Joshua Jay

As someone who is attempting to learn magic, I have started purchasing various beginners magic books.

Many are of course on the market and I find it relaxing to learn the theory of performing magic.

One such popular book is “Magic: The complete course”. When researching books to buy, this often featured.

At nearly 300 pages, I bought the larger paperback version with glossy print pages with many photos. Also available as a digital download. Divided into different sections which includes coin, card magic and of course sleight of hand.

While I knew of Joshua, it seems relevant to me to find out more about him.

Social media links follow at end of profile.
