This book is just a pleasure to read.

The concepts are creative, every item is sooo deceptive and all illusions are workable.

His essays are also a highlight and I'm sure every illusion fan will find several items of value within these pages.

Congratulations Mark on yet another stunning book on the art of illusion. Highly recommended!!!

I had a close friend build two of Marks Illusions and I was lucky enough to see a private showing - even though I know how they work and own the book they *** well fooled me!!!

The Asrah T***e redesign is brilliant. I have seen a lot of these and they have always put me off owning one. However, Marks 'in your face design' has got me building one.

I have not had a lot of dealings with Mark but every time I have called on him he has been happy to help.
