They say that women love a man in uniform, but actually in the case of Richard Jones, it turns out that a large part of the entire UK population does too! When our cover star won Britain's Got Talent last year, it propelled him from a simple member of the British army's Band Of The Household Cavalry to a national treasure, and his rise as an entertainer since then has been meteoric. Learn more by reading our article on the latest big thing in UK magic inside.
We also welcome two guest contributors to Magicseen for their first time. Geraint Clark incites close up magicians to break 5 'unbreakable' rules of magic in a post extracted from his lively online blog, and young female magician Anastasia, who edits the newsletter of the Philadelphia branch of the Society Of Young Magicians, offers an interview that she did as part of a series with top performers with the late, lamented Daryl, as a tribute to the great man.
All this plus two great card effects in the Masterclass, an article about how electronic signature technology can help you with your show booking process, 15 products get the once over from our ruthless (?) team of reviewers, Olivia Newton John turns out to be a secret magic lover when we speak to her In The Phonebox, and we learn much about Paul Stone's latest venture in Liverpool, the Magic On The Mersey.
