Austrian Magic Magazin Aladin – English Edition

The last issue of the Austrian Magic Journal Aladin aroused great interest. A large report with many previously unpublished photos from the Ken Klosterman collection also attracted international interest.

We have now published this report in a limited English special edition. In addition you can find a big report about the magic scene in Austria on 36 pages.

The edition is strictly limited and available at a price of 25,- Euro (incl. postage):

Just do it….

At our meeting we talked about the importance to present  magic history at general magic conventions too. Talks are important. But a recration of wonders of the past is true magic.
This is what we shall do 2020 at the Fröhlich Festival in Bad Aussee.
Fröhlich Zauberkongress  11th-13th September 2020.
A very very special gala show  “Timetravel” delicated to many famous illusions and magicians of past times. And thats only one of our three galashows…..
Have a look at our website.
2019 we were sold out. If you like to  be part of our special convention in one of the most beautiful parts of Austria, we would love to welcome you.
Bad Aussee is just 1 hour drive from the music capital of the world:  Salzburg
