This incredible resource explains 107 illusions, with the methods in one book and a second book dedicated to plans and working drawings. This is of great use to illusion builders but also a fascinating read for those interested in illusions and their history. Some of the illusions explained are the Substitution Trunk, Buzz Saw, Monster Guillotine, Asrah, Sword Box, Artist's Dream, Broom Suspension and Thin Model Sawing.
