A master of misdirection, Tony Slydini “was an influential giant [among magicians], inspiring dozens of other performers to pursue his ideal of elegant close-up magic requiring almost no props at all. Few magicians were performing in Argentina, where Slydini grew up. As a result, the creative youngster was forced to dream up his own moves, subtleties and routines… Slydini created some of the most elegant, original magic of his day” (Pogue, 321). “Dick Cavett once asked Dai Vernon [the close-up conjurer remembered as “The Man Who Fooled Houdini”] who could still fool him. Nobody, Vernon replied almost regretfully, then added with a smile, ‘Of course, Tony can.” (Visions). This influential magic text reveals the secrets behind such famous Slydini illusions as the knotted silks and the torn and restored newspaper.
