Magician of the Week #19: The One and Only

Hard to believe it’s taken us this long to get around to him. Even from a stylized cover image, he’s probably still recognizable as Harry Houdini:

Our Percival Collection includes a number of Houdini’s books, some of them signed by their author. Stop by to take a look.
