Anyone know where to get books or other things regarding Mr. Mutobe's work?

I heard "5x5 New Japan Magic" is good. What is in it? (If anyone has it.)

Dear LiquidSn-san

Thank you for your question about me.

Previously I wrote "3 Coins Assembly routine" in a Japanese booklet 19 years ago. You can see this routine on Magic of Japan video of Stevens Magic Emporium. I wrote my lecture notes 14 years ago. These are in all Japanese, of course. You will find the "Quadruplicate Spellbound" routine in the book of "New Magic of Japan" written by Richard Kaufman. And I wrote about "simply Mutobe palm" & "Triple knockout spellbound" in New York Magic Symposium collection V (Yellow one). This book is given an explanation in Japanese and English, as you know. I think that's all!

Now, I've written my Cylinder & Coins version in Encyclopedia of Classic Magic book. It will be put on the market in a few days. Since this book will be released in Japan, it is altogether explained in Japanese. I'm very sorry!

Recently, I think I would like to publish a hard cover book of my coin works with collaboration by Richard Kaufman or somebody else. But I don't have a connection to Kaufman or anybody. There is the possibility that I want to publish my coin book in English (not Japanese). And I want to make a DVD of my fingertip coin magic, too. If I publish my coin book in English first, I will make a DVD without explanation, like Michael Gallo's "Siamese Coins". Meir Yedid made this routine of Mike's a single set; no explanation video, & an explanation booklet.

I'm very sorry about my poor English.

Best Regards
Y. Mutobe

Mr. Mutobe's Triple spellbound can be found in the 5th collection. I think Magic Books by Post has them. Hope this helps.

Is there a lot of Kanji in your Japanese books? If not, I could read them.

There's the typical amount of Kanji you'd find in written Japanese, at least in the notes I've seen, which makes it slow for me to translate.

For those of you who'd like to see Mutobe-san in the flesh, remember he will be at the Coinvention in September!!!

Does anyone have "New Magic of Japan"?

What is the content in it? Is it all close up?

If anyone can post the table of contents, that would be wonderful!

I am very interested in buying this book.
