"Stunning effects and jaw-dropping magic!" Jeff McBride,
Creator of the Magic & Mystery School
"Jon Allen's magic is so strong and yet so offbeat. And what sets this collection
apart is the amount of parlor material he includes. Anyone working on their
close-up or stand-up acts would benefit greatly from Experience: The Magic of
Jon Allen." Joshua Jay, Trick Editor at MAGIC Magazine
Jon Allen is a man of many talents: he is a first place winner in close-up magic
at both the International Brotherhood of Magicians and The Magic Circle. He
is also the creator of "The Silent Treatment", one of the best-selling
and most innovative stand-up magic effects marketed in the last decade. And
he is one of the busiest magicians in the United Kingdom.
For the first time ever, Jon Allen is tipping his most prized routines, and
ideas-fifty effects packed into more than 200 pages of polished, performance-ready
magic. More than 400 photos are included to make your learning experience a
pleasurable one. Written with the inimitable style and wit of John Lovick, this
important book will challenge and delight any lover of magic.

Within these covers you will learn professional routines honed over thousands
of performances. And you will learn ways to improve the experience of magic
for your audiences.

"This book is the work of a man who thinks. Like many, Jon Allen thinks about
method (and the results can be insidious)... but unlike many he also, blessedly,
thinks of more than method. Turing a page of this book is like opening a present
on Christmas day. And I say this as a Jew." David Regal
"There is a marvelous elegance and economy to Jon's work as a performer and
as a creator. Experience does an extremely good job of capturing both!"
