Milson Worth: Top Magic Product Producer

The following history comes from the back page of the Milson-Worth catalogue.

milson-worth catalog #3 magicIn the early sixties, Jim Simon manufactured quality wooden magic in Texas. He sold many of his items to Joe Berg in Chicago. When Joe Berg sold his National Magic Company and moved to Los Angeles, he persuaded Jim Simon that the climate for magic was better in California. Jim Simon moved to California and settled in Sun Valley. He renamed his company Worth Magic Novelty Company in honor of his former home. His business flourished, and he soon engaged the services of Eric C. Lewis, a well known inventor and magician.

Meanwhile, Charles Johnson was starting Johnson Products, which was to become the standard of excellence for magic coins around the world. Charlie Johnson sold Johnson Products to Sam La Porte who continues enlarging on principles established by Charlies early work. But Charlie couldnt stay retired from magic. How many can? He soon began marketing a line of close-up magic under the name of Milson Magic.

When Charlie passed away, his son Lynn, an engineer with his own career track, felt obligated to fill his fathers outstanding orders. He did so. But while he was building these items, more orders came in. So, he filled those. But while he was doing that, more orders came in. And while he was filling those

When Jim Simon passed away in 1974, Lynn Johnson, now completely hooked on creating and building quality magic products, bought Worth Magic form Jim Simons estate, merging the two companies under the name of Milson-Worth Magic. With augmented facilities Lynn set out to establish Milson-Worth as a major quality manufacturer and supplier

Svengali Note Book (A5 size 4.25 x 5.5 inch) by Alan Wong – Trick

The Svengali Note Book looks like an ordinary blank note book with a plain black cover.

However, it is constructed in a way such that all the pages in the book have alternate long and short pages at the long edge of the book, from front to end. It will work the same way as a Svengali deck of playing cards, in which you can achieve forcing and changing anything by customizing your own book, and so much more:

  • Forcing: You can force any objects, pictures, words, numbers, symbols, colors, shapes, cards, dates, names, as you want to customize for your effect.
  • Prediction: If you can force anything planned, then you can prepare the predicted outcome and reveal it in ways you wanted. The last prediction box on your next Mental Epic does not always need to be a forced card.
  • Mathematical Tricks: Adapt a mathematical trick where you can force a specific number that looks randomly selected to get to your desired outcome, such as a magic square.
  • Transformation: Change colors by drawing your own magic color book, make anything appear or disappear in the book.
  • Mind Reading: Make your own book test with words, journals, drawings and be able to read minds of what the spectators are seeing.

These are only a few ideas of what you can do with the Svengali Note Book. The idea is to provide you with a blank canvas on a precision made gimmicked note book that looks ordinary.

Flexible Mirror by Mr. Magic – Trick

Flexible Mirror by Mr. Magic - TrickThe performer displays a large framed mirror. He taps the mirror with a magic wand proving that it is solid. It is then placed into an appropriate size cloth bag. Holding the bag in one hand, taking a large needle in the other hand, the performer suddenly pushes the latter through the center of the cloth bag, which obviously passes through the mirror in the bag and that creates an uncanny effect upon the spectators. Immediately the performer removes the needle, takes the mirror out from the bag, which is shown to be O.K. and that causes a great surprise to all!
