Arcane: Special Magical Arts Journal Issue - Used Book

Wunderground Magic


This is Volume 2, Issue 7 & 8 (Aug - Sep 1988) of Michael Ammar's Magical Arts Journal, which was a special double issue featuring the magic from the French magic publication, Arcane. 

At the time of this special issue, Arcane was a bi-monthly magazine published in France by Jean Yves Prost and Michel Balandras. The magazine featured the who's-who in magic, and yet was mostly unknown to English-speaking magicians. This was the English language debut.

Michael was allowed to hand-pick material from the 13 year old publication to include in the this double issue. See the incredible table of contents below. 

This is an out of print publication in very good condition. 32 pages.
