Cellini has a new book out! Titel: "Dreamer's Highway" Price will be around USD 65.-
I had a sneek preview and was surprised to see my picture in it. WOW! Great
I think all the magicians in Stockholm at FISM can buy It right know. As soon I know where you can order It, I post It right away.

This book should be fantastic. Cellini definitely knows what the "streets" are all about and has tons of stories he could share about "the real world" of street performing. I'm looking forward to reading his new book.

I should say it is a combination of Jims adventures over the years, he also write about a few streetperformers and there acts and storys, plus a lots of unpublished Routines from him and a Chapter about Hofzinser. that's all I know so far.

Hi Shorty,

Any news on where we might get Mr Cellini's latest yet? Any info from anyone would be welcome...

Thanks much and all the best,

Since he hasn't posted it yet, and FISM isn't over, I think we can assume that it hasn't been made available the wholesalers yet.

Unless I miss my bet, H & R will probably pick up some copies while they are over there.

Hi Friends

So far its not clear, whos sells after FISM the book, but It could be there is one personen that sells the book exclusive. But that's all Gosship, we will see it after Fism, I am sure you can buy it the first time there. And I don't know how big was the printing ( How many Copies), so my Copie I will sure get at the first day at Fism. It will be a teriffic book another must have. As soon I have the book I let you more know wahts inside, to make you hot :rotf:

Greetings from Shorty, shortly leaving up north to Stockholm

I bought the book at FISM and am very pleased! It is wonderful reading. The stories are great and the information in it is well worth the money. Though it is not a book about tricks he have written down a bunch anyway - which are great.

Dick Hatch ordered some to be delivered shortly. They should be here in about a month or so.

He is with H&R Magic Books.

Thanks Bill. I was hoping someone in the US would have it soon. Now I know who to check with.

H&R Magic Books? Bill always has a new resource I haven't heard of. Is there a list/web site anywhere of quality magic vendors/auctioneers? I guess it's back to the search engine.....

You are in for a very pleasant surprise. Richard Hatch (H&R Books) runs one of the finest shops in the industry. I rank him right up there with Mike Henkel, Dennis Loomis, Denny & Lee, Chris Wasshuber and Aaron Smith. Great folks to deal with!

I agree with Magiguy. I have dealt with Richard Hatch (H&R Books) in the past and have found him to be nothing but a stand-up, top-notch guy.

He has helped me track down things that were long out of print and even provided names and numbers of his competition when he was not personally able to get what I was looking for, as possible sources to contact.

Highly recommended! Mark.

Great! You've got to love the information you get on the Café'---I'm on my way to H&R Books!

Richard Hatch is a gem of a fellow and a genuine God send to those of us who are constantly searching for stuff that has been out of print for a zillion years. He has a literal treasure trove of tough to find out of print books, notes, manuscripts, etc. He also has a very sweet selection of the very best of the new stuff. For that reason, it is no surprise he would carry Cellini's book. This book is going to be very important not just for buskers but for the history of magic.

In no other time in history has so much information been available on busking. A lot of it has been put out by people trying to make a quick buck but some of it is done by those who walk the walk. Jim Cellini, Eric Evans, and Bill Palmer, are just a few who spring to mind immediately. All guys who do or have done a table act that is completely scalable, circle or doorway. The ability to do both is where the strength of magic lies on the street. When the jugglers have to go home because a bucket drummer set up and killed four circle pitches a magician can fold his table and bring his stuff down the street and work a 10 minute sidewalk show and still make the money.

I am very excited to hear about Jim's new book and can't wait to see a copy. If it were not for Jim Cellini I wouldn't have had the tools to get started on the street. Pick up a copy of his first book as well. Just great, great, stuff.



P.S. The art of street performing DVDs are an awesome investment as well.
