Sorry to report the sad news that Arthur Setterington died on Wednesday 25th January 2006 age 81. Arthur was a warm, generous magician who will be sadly missed by his many friends and correspondents throughout the world.

He was a prolific magical inventor, writer and performer. A MIMC and recipient of The Magic Circle J N Maskelyne Literary Award in 2003. He had published over 1000 tricks and ideas in many magical publications throughout the world starting in 1947 in Abra.

Arthur is acknowledged as the originator of The Penetrating Rubber Bands and was a winner of many Linking Ring Awards for his ideas.

Arthur's funeral will be held at Kingston Wesley Methodist Church in Hull on Thursday 2nd February 2006 at 11am.

Thanks for your kind words – Arthur will indeed be sadly missed. Arthur was of course a close friend of Eddie Dawes and they shared a passion for magical history. Knowing Eddie’s (and Arthur’s) concern for historical accuracy, I should correct the date of Arthur’s passing, which was given to me in error. Arthur died on Thursday 26th January 2006, not the 25th as I reported.
