Looking for your next read? Check out David Copperfield's History of Magic by David Copperfield, reviewed by Fulco Library staff, Andaiye S.

Since magician David Copperfield and I share the same hometown, Metuchen, New Jersey, I was excited to get my hands on this book. This man is after all, named Magician of the Millennium! Copperfield gives us a private invitation into the International Museum and Library of the Conjuring Arts and his invaluable collection of magic artifacts.

This coffee table book features exquisite photos of the museum, rare items, and the colorful history behind some of the most infamous magicians and illusionists of the past. From 16th century conjurers and 'witches' to Doug Henning and Copperfield himself, there's something for everyone to marvel at and learn in this book, even if you don't believe in magic.
