Postidigitation by John Wilson

$39.00

Postidigitation is a book of Magic, however it does not contain a single conjuring trick, sleight, gimmick, or routine. Within its pages there is something much better.

This is a book of spells cast by a true wizard—it’s part theory, part philosophy, and part poetry. The prose unlocks the path to understanding magic as it really is, pondering the structure of the impossible.

If you're looking for a ‘cool new card trick to wow your friends’ - you're not going to find it here. If however, you're searching for a deep-seated understanding of this craft - a way to leave an impact that lasts a lifetime on your audience, in John Wilson, you've found your guru. This is something entirely new - and that which no serious performer should be without.


Delivery: Printed 6 x 9 Book. 108 pages. 15 Black and white illustrations by Brooke Opie. Edited by Jared Kopf. 

Reading 'Postidigitation' it's a transformative experience that will leave a mark. It's a book that performs magic for the reader, colouring you in ways only recognizable to the few souls who have undergone the same.
We are so deeply pleased to be able to offer to a wider audience one of the best-kept secrets in the conjuring world, albeit in a limited release.

"If you are interested in the breadth of the human experience and the depth of the human soul, this book is for you."
- Genii Magazine

A Wizard hidden away in Dallas, Texas, John Wilson looks at spaces and discovers answers, empowering others through magic, hypnosis, and mentalism. You'll likely not have heard of him before, but after reading his work you’ll be hard-pressed to deny the impact he has on your art.

Explore the ‘Laws of Magic’ by understanding how experiences build and link together through shared happenings, reorient yourself into crafting magic through symbols, transform your interaction with reality into meaning-filled moments and find your voice in a world that desperately needs real magic.

This book teaches you the secrets of magic that have never been written down before. Things only learned through experience and passed down late at night from mentor to student. The Big Things. The things about how to actually be a magician, not just a person doing tricks. This is not a step-by-step of card tricks, it's a guide to recognising, appreciating and creating miracles.
