Jonathan Friedman is as strong a writer as he is a magician. And his background is an even split between magic and music. He has combined these passions for this sensational new book, The Magic of Jonathan Friedman: The Musical.

Jonathan delivers 24 fully fleshed-out close-up routines using cards, coins, guitar picks (because, of course!), dollar bills, plastic bags, billets, and more. The material is all original and practical, making it suitable for modern close-up performers.

Jonathan sees magic and the world through the prism of music, and his writing and theory is heavily inspired by the music and musical artists he loves.

You'll learn 24 effects, including:

Edge: Three guitar picks are balanced on top of each other in an impossible feat of skill.

So Pink Rock: A multi-phased routine with the card box, including an amazing ending where a spectator's drawing vanishes from the back of a card and appears on the card box, underneath the cellophane.

The Freshest Coin Transpo in the World: A two-phased copper/silver transpo where one coin is inserted in a plastic baggie. It's as original as it is practical.

The Chewing Gum Incident of 2017: Some chewing gum and its paper wrapper go through a series of magical transpositions!

Card Tricks Suck: An unusual presentation for the Ambitious Card with a wild ending; the spectator's selection gets sucked up through a straw!

In Clenched Fist: A four-phased 'coin through hand' routine that all the cool kids, and magic rockstars, will end up doing.

Friedman is a mix of Paul Harris, Allan Ackerman, Jay Sankey, and Elvis Costello rolled into one. The combination is a beautiful one, and the material itself is housed in a gorgeous, hardbound, full-color production numbering over 200 pages. Above all, The Magic of Jonathan Friedman: The Musical is a fun, funny read that will equip you with 24 practical, close-up routines that are easy to do and high on impact.

206 pages, full-color hardback. Each copy comes with a custom, signed guitar pick.
