If an item is marked as Special Order this means that we do not currently have this item on our shelves, but we can have the item within 2-4 business days. Since it usually takes a certain number of business days for us to get these items delivered to us (depending on the distributor), we ship them out immediately after they arrive. Special ordering allows us to expand our inventory, giving you even more things to buy at our low club member pricing.
NOTE: Although these items run 98% in stock rate, it does NOT mean that they are guaranteed to be in stock. Sometimes our distributor runs out of these items and they are on backorder. If this is the case, and you happen to purchase an item that will not be available to us within the predefined number of business days, we will let you know immediately by email. If the Special Order item that you bought is on backorder from our supplier, you will not be billed for that item at time of shipment. If you paid by PayPal, we will refund the amount of the backordered item back to your account.
Note: If you happen to order a mixture of In Stock and Special Order items, then your total order will ship as soon as your Special Order items arrive.
Urban Illusions is a stunning collection of professional illusion designs from one of the most prolific illusion designers in the world! Besides being one of Asia's most successful illusionists, J C Sum represents a new generation of illusion thinkers.
The book explains 10 cutting edge illusions that are modern in design, building methods and materials. There are no conceptual illusions, ideas or notions detailed in the book; only practical and prototyped illusions that can be built.
J C Sum and his onstage partner, 'Magic Babe' Ning, perform many of the illusions in their live shows and on TV across the world. As "Asia's Most Famous Illusionists" (The Straits Times) and "one of the very top illusion teams in the world" (magicseen magazine), J C & Ning are known for their cutting edge style and modern urban illusions.
This book details the methods and detailed building plans for some of their most well known illusions such as "Crystal Metamorphosis" and "Revollusion".
"It is rare that illusionists will share the wealth of knowledge and insight that J C does in this book. For those who wish to use illusions in their work this book is simply invaluable.
Urban Illusions is a much-needed collection of modern illusions for today's audiences and J C provides an essential new voice in the area of illusion design." - Franz Harary
