By far my favorite author of the unusual and the arcane, this book is the prettiest that Jay has put together recently. As someone who loves books and all the tactile sensations that come along with cracking open a good one, reading this book is a pleasure. It is an expensive book, but I can promise that if you are interested enough to be reading this review, it will not disappoint. Purchase it and enjoy while reading about learned horses, daring apiarists, fantastic machines, genius animals, and magical impostors.
If you are new to Ricky Jay and hesitate to spend the money, start with the equally great and much less expensive Celebrations of Curious Characters, then move on to this volume. Highly Recommended.
