A place like no other.

There’s is an Art Gallery. Not here no. Somewhere else. I’ve heard a great deal about this “somewhere else” now. It is a huge complicated place. The kind of complicated places we only visit in our dreams.

There are verdant beautiful forests and dells. There are dark and foreboding bogs and caverns. There are loud gaudy glittering places and serene noiseless ones. Places of rich jewel like colors and those of soft muted earthtones. You’ll visit bustling villages and wander roads wending to remote places.

And there are a lot, I mean a lot, of people and things to explore and get to know. Some pleasant, some not, just like everywhere else. In fact, that’s the amazing thing about this Magical place. It’s so different from where you and I live, but it’s so very much the same.

When you wander through the many halls of that art gallery, you’re seeing wonders from a foreign place, but you also sense the familiar. Almost as if you’re seeing old portraits from your childhood and own family tree.

This gallery of pictures is in the World of Paradox. Not heard of it? David Facer discovered this world (because he’s magic and because he believes such things can be just out of sight around a corner.) But now something wonderful has happened. Because David is magic, he’s been able to capture just a tiny bit of this world where “Impossible is Not a Word...” (don’t ask –it’s a paradox– and there that’s taken for granted.)

Anyway, he’s able to offer to you, and to me, a glimpse into his private, special, wonder-filled land. So our world might be just a tiny bit better ...because now we’ll know more about Magic. That’s always a good thing.

It’s one thing to see art framed and hanging on a wall, it’s quite another to experience it live, before your eyes, ringing in your ears. You can do that very thing. Visit David Facer’s World of Paradox. It will be unveiled in January of 2015. You’re welcome to come to our San Francisco Magic Parlor and stay for a while. And after a while you too might believe that impossible is not a word. At least I have.

Introducing Conjurer Walt Anthony as Prof. J. H. Anderson

My guest performances at the San Francisco Great Dickens Christmas Fair has inspired me to create a full Historical Reenactment show featuring the “Great Wizard of the North” Prof. John Henry Anderson.

If your historical organization, school, library, business, or local museum is interested in conjurer Walt Anthony’s portrayal of this world famous Victorian magician, we’d be pleased to offer performance details.

I’ve done my homework, researching Anderson and the magic of his times,  acquired his (rare) biography, and I just learned that another definitive book was published late this year!

It’s one more offering from Spellbinder Entertainment for private celebrations and corporate events in 2015.

Prof. John Henry Anderson (1814 to 1874)
was the “David Copperfield of his day”

He was the first to popularize producing a rabbit out of a top hat
He Performed two command performances for Queen Victoria
He was the first conjurer to entertain the King of the Hawaii
He undertook multiple World tours
He was a prolific magical inventor

Reclaim Your Magic...
