In 1936, Guy Jarrett produced MAGIC AND STAGECRAFT TECHNICAL, one of the most influential books on stage illusions ever published. Jarrett designed and constructed illusions for Thurston, leading Broadway shows, sideshows and world's fairs. He thought a lot of magic could be better and put his secrets and philosophies in his own hand-printed text. The result was that he changed magic forever. The secrets were astonishing, the stories were insightful, and the book became famous as one of the best reads in magic-alternately hilarious, biting and just plain honest. For many decades the book was a highly sought rarity.


The COMPLETE JARRETT is Jim Steinmeyer’s new edition of the 1936 text.  The book reproduces every page of Jarrett's original work, including 250 photos and drawings and the addition of many new diagrams for this edition. For the first time, Jim Steinmeyer has included newly discovered historical information on Jarrett, his feature illusions and the secrets of his remarkable magic.
