I'm a BIG fan of Lewis Jones's work. He has just released a new book called "As If By Magic," and his site states that it is a limited edition of only 150 copies.

I have all of his other books, and I have NEVER been disappointed. Looking forward to receiving this one! Just thought I'd give you all a heads up.

Absolutely, order now. Lewis Jones is a best kept secret in magic, his mind works in wondrous ways, his work is always excellent.

Wholehearted endorsement for Lewis's latest book. And I also agree - get it while you can as Lewis seems to focus on doing one print run, after which the book is no longer available.

As an earlier poster commented, Lewis does appear to be a "best kept secret" though he has been mentioned more frequently recently after his "Binary Code" principle was used by Rick Lax to fool P&T.

The thing that I like most about his magic is that it captures the "real magic" element - in that the spectator sees that it is not something that "with practice, I could learn that too" - i.e. it's not some fancy sleight, or flourish, but something truly weird/odd/magical/inexplicable happens. Though I still enjoy seeing some clever manipulation magic, what I most enjoy is not the demonstration of juggling skill, but rather weird coincidences and apparent impossibilities. Where the effect is not just "difficult" but (ideally) scientifically impossible. This book, like everything else I've read from this man, has those ingredients a'plenty. ala

It's always hard to make accurate comparisons, but personally I find his ideas are in a similar vein with Karl Fulves.

Quality stuff from Lewis, as usual; some offbeat thinking and meticulous development of ideas to fruition. Plus, he is a delight to deal with, prompt personal service.

This may be a year too late, but I just came across 3 copies of this Lewis Jones book, "As If By Magic".

All three of my copies have a dent or crease on the front cover, but are otherwise in LIKE NEW condition.

Here is the link to purchase:

Thanks all.

Philippe - the book still seems to be available directly from Lewis Jones on his site - and he is UK based - so guess you could buy from the creatort if you are having a problem with shipping to UK?
