Patrick Page Magic Celebrates it's First Anniversary
At Ron MacMillan’s International Magic Convention in London at the end November, we celebrated the first anniversary of the launch of Patrick Page Magic.
Patrick worked and lectured all over the world. He gathered many admirers on his travels and we now have satisfied customers in 33 different countries:
Australia, Austria, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Brunei (Hi Kelvin!), Canada, Chile, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Hong Kong (China), Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malta, New Zealand, Philippines, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the UK and the USA.
We were happy to have the opportunity to meet people at the convention and hear new stories about The Pageboy. Please send us your photos with Pat and we will include them on the Gallery and tell us any stories that you would like us to add to the Memorial Wall.
At the convention we sold some of Patrick’s old magic books and effects and hope that the new owners get as much pleasure from them as he did.
Our main aim has always been to make authorised versions of his work available to as many people as possible. Thanks to everyone who has helped us make the first year so successful.
A couple of weeks ago, the family travelled to Dundee, Scotland where Patrick and his wife, Margaret were born and grew up. We scattered their ashes near the Black Watch Soldier Memorial, which overlooks the city and know they would have approved of their final resting place.
Magic Page by Page
As soon as we got back from Scotland, the long awaited book arrived and is now available exclusively through Patrick Page Magic. We have been overwhelmed by the huge interest in the book and the high volume of early sales.
Thanks to everyone who has bought the book, with special thanks going to Dave Goulding and Pat Fallon, who generously allowed us to include their reviews on our site. (Click on the thumbnail below of any of the book covers, to see the page with their reviews).
Early feedback has been very complimentary. We know that Patrick would have been quietly proud of the book and how it turned out. Thanks also to Matt Field (Editor) and Michael Albright (Designer) - you did a first class job.
There are still some copies left of this first edition and we will send it out to you the next working day. With a bit of luck, it might arrive in time for Christmas.
Life on Planet Page
I normally write a few words about growing up in a magic household. Sorry, but this month there has not been time to write anything. I promise I'll write something for our January 2012 newsletter.
