Levitation Physics and Psychology SC (2007) comic books 2007
1st printing. By Jim Ottaviani and Janine Johnson. Hypnotic gestures, fancy clothes, and lovely assistants - these things may make the magician, but science makes the magic. This is the true story of the most dazzling illusion ever performed on stage, featuring a cast of characters almost too good to be true. The Scientist: John Neville Maskelyne, the oh-so-proper magician and the trick's creator. The American: Harry Kellar couldn't buy Maskelyne's illusion, so he found a more devious way to get it. The Inventor: Guy Jarrett, the rough-and-tumble engineer who perfected the 'Levi'. The Heir: Howard Thurston, the charismatic performer who inherited the Levi from Kellar...and then ruined it! Softcover, 6-in. x 8 3/4-in., 72 pages, B&W. NOTE: "Fans of magic and of history will enjoy Levitation; it's my favorite publication from GT Labs so far." - Aaron Settle, Lone Star Comics Regional Manager Cover price $11.99.
