- Send to a Friend
|Scrolls, marvelous, wonderful and secret things were written upon them. Now, a new kind of Scroll.|
Scrolls is about magic. Scrolls is about story telling. Scrolls is about The Author's efforts, thoughts and journeys into the world of Bizarre Magic.
To the author, Bizarre Magic is about story telling. It's about using a combination of magic and stories to produce a feeling.
Contained in these pages are some of Tim's routines, articles and obsessions.
You will not really find anything in the way of new moves or innovative handling. If anything, you will find that handlings are as simple as possible and even very close to the moves you find described in the store-bought instructions. Where possible, he tries to give credit where it belongs and where it is most certainly due.
Everything is about stories.
Also, as a matter of general concern, you will find that everything is kept as simple as possible. There aren't many books which focus on Bizarre Magic to begin with, and of the ones that are available, many contain very elaborate effects and very elaborate setups. While these effects are often excellent, sometimes they are so intensive they become difficult to use regularly. And they shouldn't be.
125 page, large format book, features Essays on Character, Acting, Material and 20 plus routines that you could actually USE.
