Houdini also makes the pages of Magicol this time out. The magazine features a nice Houdini frontispiece, as well as an article by Karl Johnson, author of The Magician and the Cardsharp, about the New York exhibition Houdini Art and Magic. Johnson provides real insight into the overall feel and effect of the exhibition, believing it will do much to quell the "anti-Houdini reverse snobbery that had evolved over the years." He also gives a refreshingly honest assessment of Matthew Barney's "The Ehrich Weiss Suite."
Mega-collector Kevin Connolly also checks in with a review of the exhibition's superb companion book.
