Invitation to the Presentation of the Art of Magic Stamps

This Wednesday, August 15, the New York Historical Society will host the New York presentation of the stamps honoring the Art of Magic.  The event, in their main auditorium, begins at 9:30am and will be over at 11am.  The event is open to the public (although it is not currently listed on their website).

The event will begin with a viewing of the exhibits from David Copperfield’s collection, with close-up magicians performing in the lobby.  We will have a brief lecture on the history of magic in New York, presented by Richard Cohn, and performances by magicians from the area of the five kinds of magic illustrated by the stamps (levitation, prediction, vanish, production, transformation).

Please let me know if you plan to come, so we can send numbers to the Historical Society and reserve seats.

All are welcome, and there is no charge.
