Klosterman Collection Coffee Table book
Just ordered mine today from Salon de Magie.Com
Salon de Magie
By Ken Klosterman, with Gabe Fajuri
After over 30 years of collecting, Ken Klosterman offers a rare look into what has made his collection, The Salon de Magie, a legend within the inner circles of magic and collecting.
Housed 83 feet beneath the surface of the Earth in an abandoned mine, the Salon de Magie is home to some of the finest pieces in the history of magic. Robert-Houdin, Hofzinser, Herrmann, Kellar, Houdini, Germain, and dozens more of the greatest magicians in history await you in this new book from the Salon de Magie.
Read the biographies of the major collectors in history and how parts of their collections came to reside in the Salon de Magie. Then, take a virtual tour of the museum, with detailed histories of over 100 of the finest pieces in the collection. Each book also comes with a DVD containing an interview with Ken Klosterman and a video tour of the Salon de Magie.
The standard edition will be limited to 450 copies, each hardbound in imitation leather with 400 pages and 286 photographs, most in full color.
The Collector's Edition will be limited to 50 copies, each hand bound in fine leather with gilding on the cover and page edges. Imbedded in the cover is Ken's magic token, re-minted in solid silver. Finally, each copy will be signed and numbered by Ken and the purchaser's name will be gilded on the cover of his or her copy.
