Houdini’s Paper Magic reprint

The books Houdini wrote during his life have all fallen into the public domain and are therefore reprinted again and again in varying quality. I don’t even try to keep up, and let most of these reprints pass me by.

But every once and a while there’s a standout, and that applies to Barnes & Noble’s 2007 reprint of Houdini’s Paper Magic. It’s a small quality hardcover with a very nice dust jacket by Jo Obarowski. The text is a facsimile of the original 1922 edition by Dutton.

If you don’t have Paper Magic and don’t want to shop (and pay) for a first edition, this might be the one to add to your Houdini library.
