I was asked did Barry Mitchell place plans for a "Spider" like backdrop that can be made for $100 in his book?

Yes, Walmart sell a queen size portable air-matress bed which is placed on a "spider-like" frame. (Resell the bed to recoup some funds.) You would also need to buy the cloth, then velcro or sew it on the frame. Barry suggests perma-press cloth so frame and cloth can dropped down together. A real nice touch. It used bigger tubing than the "Spider" and a little heavier but it looks well.

Does Barry discuss any of his routines in his book?

Barry discusses many of his routines as well as giving you premission to use them. His book will be a classic.

By the way, Barry put my name in the book around page 102.

Barry gave one of the finest and humorous lectures of his career at the 2003 Kidabra Conference which focused on this book. A worthwhile book to have in any magic collection. That lecture was video taped and it may for sale in the near future.

Barry also offers two effect in the Vanishing Bandana format. (Taped show, you supply the face, hand and body movements.)

Super Chicken and Super Slouth.. He no long produces the Miser Book which was also in the same format.

See Barry Mitchell's Website for more information on this book and the cool origional products he sell.

This frame can be found at thie online Walmart Site.
