"J. N. Hofzinser--Non Plus Ultra, Volumes I & II: In 1998 and 2004, Magic Christian released two mammoth volumes of his unceasing and extraordinary research on the nineteenth-century Viennese master Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser, one of magic's greatest artists and innovators. For more than a century it was believed that most of Hofzinser's magic had been lost. Through Magic Christian's untiring efforts, that is no longer the case. These two volumes, published in German, fill in huge amounts of information about Hofzinser and his card magic, exploding myths, correcting misinformation and presenting everything currently known about his life, sleights, tricks and presentations. Both volumes are now translated into English and are being edited and typeset in a deluxe format emulating the art-book design of the German editions. Christian has also added new discoveries made since the original editions were published. These books will be produced in collaboration with the Conjuring Arts Research Center, assuring that they will be of the finest quality."
This is THE book I been wating for. After a chat with Stephen Minch, he told me that the books will be about 800 pages, sold together in a slipcase. They will cost about $250.00.
Stephen estimated they will be out in early december, but nothing that is written in stone.
I'm salvating allready, got my piatnik cards ready!
This has to be the book of the year!

"And these are “deluxe” editions, are far as the production values go: slipcase, special paper, hand-tipped decorations on the bindings and slipcase. And only 900 sets will be sold. However, sadly, Herr Hofzinser has made himself unavailable for autographs."

Just recieved an email from Conjuring Arts saying that they will be offering a 5 month installment plan for Non Plus Ultra. Won't ship until after the installment is finished.

I was on the fence whether to purchase or not, with Holiday shopping around the corner, but with this offer, it might be too difficult to resist.
