FROM THE PUBLISHER:In the early 1900s, Houdini’s handcuff show was a huge sensation that toured the best venues in the USA and Europe.When audiences demanded more, he introduced straight-jackets, water-filled tanks, and nailed shut packing crates.His outdoor spectaculars became increasingly elaborate. In the early winter of 1906, he leaped manacled from the MacArthur Bridge in Detroit, Michigan, freeing himself from two pairs of handcuffs beneath the icy waters. Houdini's mega-star status allowed him to fly airplanes, star in his own movies, write and publish his own books, and even become president of the Society of American Magicians.
This amazing book follows Houdini's incredible career by displaying hundreds of rare photos, posters and promotional materials from Houdini's colorful career.So enjoyable to read!
