By Georges Proust Publishing...Illustrated By James Hodges (famous for the Fechner Books)...English Translation By Jerome Dumaine FOREWORD—“Every era has seen the birth of great creators who have conceived extraordinary devices in the domain of magic to increase the prestige of famous illusionists. In France, today, the YOGANO name is associated with magical effects and smart mechanics! How did he make these devices and what are his secrets?
In this book, YOGANO reveals for the first time ALL of his illusion building and design secrets, including that of his practical and ingenious “SIT-DOWN & VERTICAL LEVITATIONS,” that have earned him a worldwide reputation as one of our great creators of illusions!
America has its Jim Steinmeyer’s, John Gaughan’s and Bill Smith’s, but all of Europe has only one and that is YOGANO! Together with these revelations in the technical chapters, they are preceeded by a biography that retraces his eventual career. As this book reveals, YOGANO is either a “mechanical genius” or a “poet of illusions,” and is an integral part of the contemporary history of magic.

“After dedicating half a century of my life to professional magic, I feel it is only fair to offer the fruits of my research to the magic community. I know that numerous magicians are presenting my inventions, but I believe that very few of my colleagues are aware of the processes needed to develop the illusions, that you will discover in this book. And to those who this book will help, for them, to go even further in their magical adventures” --YOGANO
