MAGIC Magazine August 2014 Cover
The August 2014 issue ofMAGIC Magazine dropped into the mail on Thursday, August 17, 2014. The digital issue, however, is already waiting for you on MyBookshelf. Click here to log in and start reading.

This month, I'm excited about profiling two amazing magicians you might not be aware of: Xavier Mortimer and Drummond Money-Coutts. They each approach this art with a fresh set of eyes, and that's a very good thing. We also have coverage of the IBM/SAM Combined Convention, and two new television series: Masters of Illusion and Wizard Wars. Finally, if you're unaware of the boom in custom decks of cards — well, let's just say you need to get out more! Designer decks bring a fresh look to the genre, and Chris Chelko takes us behind the scenes of this pasteboard phenomenon that's showing no signs of slowing down. It's all in the August issue — and a lot more!
