After over 30 years of collecting, Ken
Klosterman offers a rare look into what has made his collection,
The Salon de Magie, a legend within the inner circles of magic
Housed 83 feet beneath the surface of
the Earth in an abandoned mine, the Salon de Magie is home to
some of the finest pieces in the history of magic. Robert-Houdin,
Hofzinser, Herrmann, Kellar, Houdini, Germain, and dozens more
of the greatest magicians in history await you in this new book
from the Salon de Magie.
Read the biographies of the major
collectors in history and how parts of their collections came to
reside in the Salon de Magie. Then, take a virtual tour of
the museum, with detailed histories of over 100 of the finest
pieces in the collection. Each book also comes with a DVD
containing an interview with Ken Klosterman and a video tour of
the Salon de Magie.
