Algonquin McDuff’s Spirit Cloth Book as told to Rhett Bryson, Jr. & Dexter Cleveland

Published in 1984, this volume presents the history of that fascinating magic/mentalism prop – The Spirit Cloth, sometimes called the "Daylight Seance Cloth".

You will find wonderfully funny routines using the spirit cloth from such luminaries as Martin Gardner, Rick Johnsson, Bev Bergeron, Steve Beam, Hank Lee, Parker Swan and others. The “Further Reading List” alone is worth the price of the book.

This book was thought to be out of print, all copies sold and it was no longer available from the publishers. However we have found just a few of the Original Edition, now available. Don’t Wait!!
