The Supreme Magic Company was a British magic manufacturer and publisher, operating from 1953 until 1993.
Founded by Edwin Hooper in Devon, England with a loan from his father and with encouragement from inventor and propmaker Jack Hughes and from Percy Abbott, Hooper launched the Supreme Magic Company. He partnered with Abbott's Magic Company and over the years built Supreme Magic into one of the largest magic dealerships in the world. It was exclusively a mail order business. Supreme was not merely a retailer; they also published hundreds of books plus the magazines Magigram and Pentagram .Supreme Magic also manufactured numerous magic apparatus that is very collectible today.The company eventually employed about 100 people, including renowned magic inventor Ian Adair. In 1987, due to ill health, Hooper sold the company to Brian Head and Paul Dupee.They closed the business in 1993.
John Hofner was the magical stage name of John Blackburn, an English percussionist who performed with countless celebrities (like Roy Orbision and Gene Pitney) with the house bands on various British television programs in the 1960s.By the late 1970s, he had performed with enough magicians that he decided to create his own nightclub hypnotism act.Because of his musical commitments, his stint as a mentalist was shortlived.He did, however, write several very insightful books on mentalism, including this one.
