Praise

ILLUSIONOLOGY includes a visually dense array of interactive elements: flaps, 3D pop-ups, foldouts, sealed envelopes. Among its revelations: the secrets behind Harry Houdini’s straitjacket escape and needle swallowing tricks, the “science” of levitation and the trickery behind spirit mediums. But watch out: readers also learn dice and card tricks that require no special extrasensory ability.
—The New York Times

Purportedly written by magician Albert D. Schafer, who vanished in 1915, this handsome addition to the Ologies series, which mimics the look of advertisements and periodicals of the era, explores the history and practice of magic…Step-by-step directions and props let readers try simple tricks, while clues lead to the revelation of the author’s fate.
