El mundo magico de Tamariz

At the beginning of the Nineties Juan Tamariz was asked by “Ediciones del Prado”, a Madrid based publisher, to create a multi-lesson course of magic that would be sold over a longer period serially to the public.

The complete work, consisting of all sorts of tricks, techniques, theories, anecdotes, history and a large etcetera is certainly one of the greatest and most original contributions to the literary genre of “magic for non-magicians”.

The complete file of the series titled El mundo magico de Tamariz is now a sought-after collectors item, and if you can get one you should consider yourself extremely fortunate – on a recent asking even the Maestro himself doesn’t have a file!

Part of the project was a massive magic box that also contained two (!) VHS videos and a full-sized book of 270 pages.

During the pandemic years I have looked through all of this material again, and it is a gold-mine of ideas of all sorts that even the most seasoned professional can profit from.

“El mundo magico de Tamariz” – The book

On one of the videos Tamariz performs several of the routines, mostly very simple but still effective (if done by him!), and at the end there is a most unusual juggling routine he does and which will surprise and enchant you – I’m sure that even as a connoisseur of Tamariz’s magic you did not expect that.

Wish you all an excellent week!
