The Magic of J. N. Hofzinser
For several years now, Magic Christian has researched the life and works of, Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser, the father of all card conjurers, who was also a contemporary of the singer, actor, and playwright Johann Nestroy. His creative ideas influence magicians to this very day and he is rightfully referred to as the father of parlour- and card-magic. It transpired that the material was sufficient to fill three books with humour, historical facts, and effects. For the first time, this master of parlour-magic is presented as a real person. Fascinating descriptions of his surroundings and his character add to the addictive content of the books. HOFZINSER is presented as legendary magician, a romantic poet, a hated critic, a keen balloonist, and a friend of various well-known celebrities of the time. Because of the importance of this work, the author and the publishers have decided to limit the edition to numbered books.
