Personally Speaking – Jan07 – Part 3

Spider Folding Table 4 Without question the most universally recognized product Spider manufactures. Sleek in design, compact, durable and secure-these are the perfect prop tables for the working performer. Whether purchased individually, or to accentuate other Spider products. Either way, they will serve you well. The tables are constructed by frame aluminum and feature translucent […]


Aldo Colombini – Nobody At Home

Columnist: Aldo Colombili I think this is a showy routine, full of magic and I am very fond of it. It was published in Linking Ring Magazine (my third Parade, October 1994.)

Aldo Colombini – 'mamma Mia Magic' Aldo Colombini

It is a good piece of impromptu magic. It was published in my SAND CASTLE lecture notes (my fourth lecture at the MAGIC CASTLE in Hollywood) […]
