Jim Steinmeyer’s first book on stage illusions, containing 9 surprising and deceptive illusions and 6 stand-up effects for magicians. In each case, the emphasis is on presentation and practicality, with diagrams and dimensions so the effects can be constructed in workshops.

Now a standard text on the subject, Device and Illusion has been acclaimed as a valuable and important collection of effects, and many of the illusions in the book have been featured by professional magicians.
