60 Great Magic Posters book and DVD

Dover Publications has released a book and DVD combo, 60 Great Magic Posters, containing vintage poster art from the great age of stage magicians, including Houdini.

Full-color illustrations depict conjurers performing acts of hypnotism, levitation, and other mystifying feats. Posters can be used in arts and crafts projects, printed at poster size, and played as a slide show on a computer or DVD player.

The Houdini posters include the classic Milk Can poster, King of Cards, Europe's Eclipsing Sensation, The Master Mystery episode eight, a British Water Torture Cell poster, and the uncommon 1914 Buried Alive poster (which raised interesting questions investigated here).

Thanks to MSW for the tip.
