Just ordered the 'Prism' book based on these recommendations.
But you guys are so evil! First you get me all worked up talking about this impossibly expensive 'Color' series, which I know I will never, ever be able to afford. Then you lightly let it slip that the whole thing can be had as a compilation for $40! Evil. Smile
Thanks for the recommendations. The Magic Café rocks!

Never figured out why the original color series went so high in value (I have the original complete set) which initially sold for $3.95 per book. Now they printed Prism and included all the color series inside this book, now my set is back down to being worth about what they originally sold for. I still must say though they all contain GREAT mentalism from a genius in our field..
The effect is the important thing, how you achieve it is not.......

Just received my copy of 'Prism' from Aladdin Books in Fullerton, CA. It not only arrived FAST, they added a library-quality mylar cover to protect the dustjacket. I'm impressed.
As for the book itself, I just unwrapped it. But it's a nice-looking book with clean, clear illustrations (albeit few of them), 220 pages, and 53 effects by a master for forty bucks. My calculator says that's 75 cents apiece. What's not to like? Smile
BTW, Maven says, in the introduction, that 3000 copies were printed of the Blue book, the first in the series, but by the end of the series, he only produced 500 copies of the Violet book. So now I know why they're so expensive. I think 'Prism' is a better deal.
