Al Koran Professional Presentations

Al Koran Professional Presentations
by Hugh Miller

Hailed as THE mentalism book to own.

Al Koran was a legend in his own lifetime and now his reputation is enhanced by countless mind-readers and mentalists who draw on the subtle and entertaining magic of Al Koran.

Hailed as THE mentalism book to own, Prodessional Presentations has been reprinted and made better than ever! Al Koran 's Professional Presentations is a magical classic and was first published by Harry Stanley in 1967. This revised edition has a new introduction by Hugh Miller and stunning new illustrations by Paul Griffin that are based on the original photographs.

As Hugh Miller says in his, introduction: "Right up to the time the manuscript was finished, something of a whirlwind set in. Four evenings a week for six weeks Al and I worked steadily on the book cutting no corners, pushing ourselves hard and actually enjoying it. Al took extraordinary pains over the routines, chucking out four that had been on the shortlist - two of them that had even been written up - because in his view they didn't match the impact or audience appeal of other material already in the manuscript. I found myself rejecting a whole set of photographs because they had a different background tone from others already printed. Nit-picking, ruthless weeding, the production of endless drafts until descriptions were as clear as they could be - such behaviour was standard for the project. And we were having a good time!"

The book is packed with wonderful gems of magic from the fertile mind of AL KORAN. The Flying Ring, The Gold Medallion, The Torn and Restored Cigarette Paper are just a few of the brilliant effects you will find within these pages. If you wanted to do a wonderful show and only had this book to hand you would find that there is enough material in this book to do just that.

Al Koran's Professional Presentations is a magical classic and was first published in 1967 by Harry Stanley at the Unique Magic Studio. The original publication was marred by poor photographic reproduction so this new edition from Martin Breese has illustrations by Paul Griffin based on the original photographs. Hugh Miller has contributed a fascinating and lengthy introduction which explains a great deal about the background of this book which is a 'must' for every performer's library. "Each effect is a stunner and the original Koran Medallion and many other now classic effects, are explained in detail."
