Mark had originaly intended for the sales just through his own site, but has chosen to include Stevens Magic, Viking and UGM in the process as they approached him about being part of the project and are valued dealers and supporters of Mark's work in the past.

I received an email that the printing has caused some delays.
Mark writes that the book will now ship closer to the end of October.

Hello all
I am very pleased to let you know that I am sitting here reading a copy of Marks' new Illusion book - Vivify. It has just come to me hot off the press (literally) and this is like no other illusion book on the market. This is one of the best produced books in magic I have ever seen. The quality of paper and artwork alone make this a stand out book and way beyond production of 99% of magic books that are being produced today. My wife actually loves this book - it's a work of art in of itself.
I have sat here for the past few hours reading every page thinking to myself - I want to build that - I want to build that!! The illusion ideas in here are truly for the modern day performer - I'm trying to decide on the highlights - but in all honesty his two essays speak volumes - he is saying what has need to be said for quite some time!!
There are some truly amazing concepts and illusions, my favorite is his take on the 'slender desk'. Having produced and performed my own version of a natural looking desk, for over 15 years, I can tell you that when I finish this tour I'm on of Asia, Mark's prop is going in to production!!!

If I were to compare this book to anything I would have to say it is a modern day Harbin Illusion book. With only 500 copies available this will definitely become a collectors item in a very short time.

If, like me you own Mark's previous illusion book, then you'll know the wait was more than worth it. Even as I sit here writing this I can't stop looking at the book and deciding which illusion I want to get built first:)

There is a huge range of material in here from an amazing motorbike appearance to a volunteer based illusion to his well known Vivesctioned illusion. All in all, TEN awe inspiring illusions and some very well thought out essays.

Thank you Mark for your inspiring ideas, your willingness to share your illusions and essays with us all, and for taking the level of a 'magic book' to levels that truly inspire me in my own productions.

Mark, I realise you are not a member of the Café, but hope that somehow you'll get my message of praise and thanks through friends of yours on the Café.

Mark tells me they are shipping out of Singapore. So depending on the means of shipping we will have to wait and see. Could be a week could be a month...

I got mine 5 minutes ago!!! (number 17)

What can I say? It is the most handsome book on magic that I have the pleasure to own. The quality, the layout...everything. The illusions all look brilliant, though I haven't had any time to really read it.

Even if you're not into stage illusions, I'd recommend this book just for the sheer beauty of it.

I KNOW! I'm waiting on the Taschen book, Marks 2 illusion books, Fortes Casino Game Protection, Scripting Magic, and a couple laymen books on marketing and such.

I'm getting antsy!
