Born John McBride, in Goshen, New York. In 1973, he made his national television debut as a guest on the quiz show Whats My Line? In 1975, he was booked on a tour of Japan as the opening act for a salsa band. It was in Japan that he was exposed to kabuki, a Japanese theater form, which had such a great influence on his own magic style.
Jeff McBride is currently based in Las Vegas, Nevada. He established the "McBride Magic and Mystery School" to teach the art of stage magic. Working under his stage name, Magnus, Jeff was a performer for several years in Caesar's Palace's Magical Empire.

Jeff has won several awards, including recognition by the Academy of Magical Arts, the Society of American Magicians, and the International Grand Prix of Magic as "Magician of the Year."

Richard Ross (1946 - 2001)
Richard Ross won top honors at the European FISM (Fédération International des Sociétés Magiques) congress three times.
The name is synonomous with "Linking Rings". Ross was the undisputed master of the ancient classic, even bringing it back from disfavor into many a magician's working repertroire.
The Linking Rings routine, in Ross' expert hands, was a thing of beauty in which the rings seemed to plainly and visibly melt through each other with no more effort than just holding them.
It was this classic -- given new life by Ross -- that served as his singular reputation-maker and was a cornerstone of his manipulation act, which also featured a beautifully rendered Miser's Dream and a gorgeous Multiplying Clocks.
A beautiful photo of Richard, very magical, a hero of mine who is sadly no longer with us, and if I didn't already have it this one would be on my wall!

Cha Peau - Roland Schopp
In 1984, the author, award-winning German performer Roland Schopp, aka ChaPeau, awoke the art of Chapeaugraphy. Ever since, it has been an integral part of his repertoire as both magician and quick-change artist. Now for the first time he shares with the reader his knowledge and the experience of 25 years performing the art professionally.
The art of Chapeaugraphy means visual comedy. From a simple felt ring the performer folds various hats in order to impersonate different people and characters. Within seconds, a stoic Napoleon Bonaparte becomes a crying baby; after that a Chinese Mandarin; and then a Spanish Torero, to name a few. The audience is truly amazed and amused by the fast and visible transformations.
This is a very interesting poster, the 3 pictures have been put together to not only catch the magic but also the humour of Cha Peau.

Salvano 1929 - 2006
Salvano the magician was born in Poland.
With his exceptional intellectuality and creativity in magic, he was known as one of the smoothest classical acts.
Salvano lived and breathed magic.
Salvano's act was always very popular at UK magic conventions and was loved by many magicians.
Silent and very traditional, it was jam-packed with great magic moves, productions and vanishes.
His lecture was always excellent, featuring clever original magic that often caught magicians out; a fact which I'm sure secretly delighted him.
He will be really missed.
A beautiful and magical picture of this late master of magic.

Bob's specialty is cards.
His repertoire is culled from the legacies of such as Walter Cummings, Paul Rosini, Ken Allen, and Max Londono, but he exemplifies how to customize the creations of others to suit your own styles.
Whether cutting a card in midair with a pair of shears or slahing through a newspaper page from a distance of 15 feet or more, Wild Man Bob evokes audible gasps of admiration.
There is no other magician-no other human being-in the world like Bob Little. And, because underneath his quirky, sexy 'Wild Man' persona there is an experienced pro who really knows what he is doing at all times and who knows the real work of captivating an audience.
He is the incomparable Bob Little of Hatboro, Pennsylvania.
