FISM winning magician from Korea, Seol Park will be joining us to lecture. Find out more about his lecture in the video below:
David Ben is on the cover of the April 2017 issue of Genii Magazine. David is no stranger to members of the Hat & Rabbit Club, having been a prominent fixture of the local community for decades, including being president of the club (1984-85). He is also the author of the important modern books, Zarrow: A Lifetime of Magic, The Experts at the Card Table and part one of the Dai Vernon Biography… cough… still waiting for Part 2… cough…
The cover story focuses on his most recent show in Toronto, Hocus Pocus, along with his multitudinous other interests and obsessions in the world of magic.
Subscribers to the magazine should see their issues arriving in Canada soon.
Longtime members of the club will have heard of Msgr. Vincent Foy. One of the country’s longest-serving Catholic priests, passed away earlier this week at the age of 101.
Among magicians, he was better known for his contributions to the literature of magic, including publications released under the pen name “Dr. George E. Casaubon” and for his assistance in writing the important books The Magic and Methods of Ross Bertram and Bertram on Sleight of Hand. Later, in his nineties, Ron van Someren photographed him performing the nearly one hundred one-handed cuts with playing cards he invented, which were compiled and published in 2011 A Cut Above.
