Jon Armstrong: Taking Charge in Life and On Set
By Chris Philpott
More than just the man behind the Tiny Plunger, Jon Armstrong has long been a successful magician.

Plus, here Jon teaches his Strong Arm Tactics effect.

Breathe Magic
By Alan Howard
Based in the UK, Breathe Magic is an organization that is taking the tools of conjuring and clinical research and applying them to patients in need of physical therapy, with great success.

The Legendary Richiardi Jr.
By Levent
Following reluctantly in the footsteps of his father, Aldo Izquierdo Colosi turned from his beloved singing and dancing to become arguably the finest illusionist in the world. While the Peruvian magician died in 1985, Richiardi's legend endures, with many of his props now rescued and preserved in David Copperfield's International Museum & Library of the Conjuring Arts.

Mural, Mural on the Wall
By Rory Johnston
Four artists spread their magic in a big way, spray-painting scenes of magic across the sides of buildings. These New York-area graffiti artists are "the magic crew" who, with permission, brighten neighborhoods with scenes of rabbits in hats, Houdini, and other iconic images.
