Amazing close-up magic - page 1

At Vanishing Inc. Magic we specialize in the genre called "close-up." Think David Blaine, Dynamo, and any magic you've seen up close, right under your nose. There is no question, for us, that a miracle witnessed up close and with interaction is always stronger than some stage illusion seen from a great distance. That's why the focus on our business is close-up magic.

If you're new to magic, our co-founder Joshua Jay literally "wrote the book" on close-up magic for beginners: Magic: The Complete Course.
