This is the fourth issue of our magazine Quarterly, a publication aimed at all students of magic. We try to bring to the written published world of magic new approaches, new ideas, and new ways of seeing magic.

All the articles in Quarterly are being published for the first time in English, and most of them are completely original and brand new. Setting it apart from other magazines, Quarterly doesn’t have any ads or publicity, ensuring it is all real content. We will not overuse pages with images, unless they add to the article content. Printed on FSC certified and eco-friendly paper, this issue is 85 pages long, hand-finished, and personally numbered, and it contains these essays:

 

In Pursuit of Aesthetic Beauty by Dave Buck and Elliott Terral

 

This article explores the aesthetic that comes into play in any performance of conjuring and offers an approach by which one can move towards a particular notion of beauty.

 

In Praise of Artifice by Roberto Mansilla

 

Another article that advances the ideas of Fictional Magic and what artifice means in the artistic context of magic. Lose yourself in these notions to find some beauty in the invisibility of technique.

 

Card Tricks, Beer and Orange Juice by Denis Behr and Pit Hartling

 

Another dialogue that, besides the beverage choice, talks about scripting, symbolism and comedy and how easy it is to mess up old routines.

 

Walking Down the Magic Way – Part 2 by Helder Guimarães

 

In this second piece, Helder evaluates and expands upon several more concepts from the work of Juan Tamariz in The Magic Way. This can help your magic look stronger inside the minds of your audience members.

 

Who Murdered Card Magic? by Marty Demarest

 

This thought-provoking article arrives at an answer that may well surprise you. But, along the way, Marty Demarest offers many interesting ideas about the development of a modern and then post-modern approach to card magic.
