I’m taking the time to thank people whose work I value. While they’re alive to appreciate it. Today it’s RICKY JAY, legendary master of magic, card tricks and sleight of hand.
Author of LEARNED PIGS AND FIREPROOF WOMEN, DICE and, most recently, his incredible history of MATTHIAS BUCHINGER. ‘the little man of Nuremberg.’ A historian of stage magic, he is a walking museum of stage craft and con artistry.
