The book explains 10 cutting edge illusions that are modern in design, building methods and materials. There are no conceptual illusions, ideas or notions detailed in the book; only practical and prototyped illusions that can be built.
J C Sum and his onstage partner, 'Magic Babe' Ning, perform many of the illusions in their live shows and on TV across the world. As "Asia's Most Famous Illusionists" (The Straits Times) and "one of the very top illusion teams in the world" (magicseen magazine), J C & Ning are known for their cutting edge style and modern urban illusions.
This book details the methods and detailed building plans for some of their most well known illusions such as "Crystal Metamorphosis" and "Revollusion".
"It is rare that illusionists will share the wealth of knowledge and insight that J C does in this book. For those who wish to use illusions in their work this book is simply invaluable.
Urban Illusions is a much-needed collection of modern illusions for today's audiences and J C provides an essential new voice in the area of illusion design."
- Franz Harary
