Looking Glass was a close-up magazine with tricks, commentary, and reviews. The editors were Richard Kaufman, Jon Racherbaumer, and someone else. There were four issues total. You can purchase all four issues from Richard Kaufman (http://kaufman.geniimagazine.com/booksandtapes.html) for $40.00.

Richard took over Genii at that time, and ceased his own publications including The Looking Glass.

Yes, there is some very clever material in these issues, and a great list of contributors (not to mention the always amusing "Dear Mr. Busby" column). Predominantly cards, but contains a fair sampling of coins, bills, etc, as well.

You can always find mine in the land fill outside San Jose California along with about 20 years worth of magic magazines my freakin' wife had thrown out.

Agree about the Busby columns, its seeing a small portion of Magic history in written form, what was popular, who was releasing what to the community - most informative
