“A small, squat man is speaking before a huge crowd. All eyes are cast upon him, most in awe, some in adoration, and others in complete envy. Yet, all are rapt. Casting aside the realities of their everyday lives, they have willingly entered a world where disbelief is common, where the impossible frequently happens and where anything is seemingly possible.”
Yellow Magpie

My 12 year old son has an affinity for magic tricks and slight of hand.  He’s scoured the web for YouTube videos and has purchased numerous books and magic kits to ascertain the tricks of the trade.  Inspired by this and my love for vintage typography I bring to you this selection of Houdini themed vintage posters.
