Wow. That is surprising. That along with Back in Time and Fan Mail (greatest use of bill switch ever created) make up my top three sankey effects.


Those two are in the books, thankfully Smile

Hopefully it will be on the dvd. I'm curious what effects will be on the dvd, from what I understand its some of his best effects taken from his previous dvds.
My understanding was that the DVDs would be made up of the tricks that are in the books.

Went ahead and ordered the deluxe edition - don't usually do that, but this promises to be a goldmine legacy of one of magic's most creative inventors. So what's an extra $100 for a lifetime resource and a piece of history?

You may be correct, I'm not sure. For some reason I assumed that the effects on the DVDs would be things not found within the books. Looking back I couldn't find any info to support the idea that the effects on the DVDs where different than those in the books so you are probably right.

Sooo , slowmotion coins isn't in the book nor the DVD? I always thought (and more people with me) that that's one of the best Sankey effects! Thankfully, there are plenty more great routines to perform! I can't wait to receive them !

I would say: PM or mail Andi and tell him you would love to have a copy of the books. Maybe he has some for you to pick up?

Dose the price of magic made in the US, but sold in a UK/Euro magic shop go up in price because of the VAT?

Sometimes from release to release an effect will end up with a different name. Possibly Slowmotion Coins will be in the book. Where is it
published elsewhere?

On another DVD there was another version of the routine, but then with an openly exposure of the wristwatch vanish? Maybe that one is in the book?

Shipping costs most of the time.

Received the promo email from Vanishing today, looks really great this.

As for UK/Europe shipping it really depends on how many copies the magic shop orders, because if they can get the shipping costs down, and perhaps get a rebate for volume, then their total prize can be competitive to a ship-from-US-with-shippping cost.

I'm new to the magic world, but this does seem like a no brainer, doesn't it? My advantage is that I don't have anything old by Sankey in my dungeon... Smile

All magic dealers in the UK have to charge VAT (currently 20%) to customers within Europe. There is no VAT on books, though, so magic books are free of VAT. But books that come with a DVD are NOT officially excluded from VAT, in the same way that there is VAT on ebooks but not printed books.

Hello! I'm not sure which Phil you are, and whether we know each other! But remember that you're talking about a set of books that are almost certainly the biggest magic books to be released at any one time. As those who have received them already will testify; they're massive! We don't make a profit from shipping (in the case of the Sankey books, we subsidise the shipping), so the costs are simply because the books are so big.

We print and store our books in the USA (California), so your books aren't being shipped fifteen miles, but almost four thousand miles! In fact, I only have one set at my house: my personal set ... and I'm holding onto that set very tightly!

Best

I ordered the deluxe set literally 5 minutes after the initial email went out and mine still haven't shipped. Frustrating....even though I've already got a ton of sankey material on dvd.

Perhaps these books will be sold by some UK dealers, the same way they're being sold by other dealers in the US and he can avoid the shipping costs.

Even a flat rate postal box that can handle upto 20LBS costs $61 to the UK.

That's awesome, Munseys. I'm curious what the books say about tricks that involve gimmicks, like In a flash, holy moly, etc. Does it have methods for making the gimmicks or are some of the gimmicks included? (I'm sure others are wondering too)


I'm wondering this too.

Are the publishers offering a complete list of what is in each book? That would be much more useful than the rather vague descriptions in their advertisement.

Have I simply missed such a list on their site somewhere?


A list of all the tricks are available in the free "Sankey Sampler' pdf from VanishingInc. It's got a table of contents for all 3 volumes.

Link8822 and Durgy,

I am very sorry for the delay in my reply. I simple missed Link8822's question. For the sorts of Sankey effects that require a gimmick that can't be made at home, the authors indicate where the gimmicks can be purchased (i.e. through Sankey himself or a local magic dealer). To be clear, the VAST majority of the effects in this book do NOT require gimmicks that must be pruchased.

Best Wishes
