The Celeste Evans Autobiography

Each Copy was autographed before Mrs. Evans passing in 2017.

The Beauty of Magic - From humble beginnings in White Rock, Britch Columbia, Celeste Evans overcame self-doubt and discouragement from friends and family to become one of the most admired magicians of the twentieth century. She was the first female magician to use doves extensively in her act and traveled more miles as a magician and entertained more military personnel than any other woman in the history of magic.

Including 13 Color Photographs & 69 black & white photographs

In this autobiography, Celeste Evans shares never-before-told stories of performing with other celebrities, and before kings, queens, and heads of state throughout the world. She was also featured on national television shows such as The Ed Sullivan Show and Barbara Waters' Not For Womaen Only, and To Tell the Truth, where she stumped the panel and proved who she was by escaping from a straitjacket in nine seconds. Celeste has performed in top venures throughout the world, including The Palace in New York City. Come follow a young, dreamy-eyed Canadian on her whirlwind magical tour of the world, setting the standard for all woman magicians who follow, as she developed into the "Beauty of Magic".

“Magic is a hard life, but there’s nothing else like it,” she says, smiling. “It can show you the world.”-Celeste Evans
