Nothing up my sleeve


A story of mine has been published in The Age today and is available online here.

The story focuses on the history of magic in Melbourne and a new exhibition covering that subject at City Museum, which runs through December and January. One of the people I interviewed was magic historian Gerald Taylor (pictured above), a sweet elderly man and a fountain of knowledge on all things abracadabra. After our interview Gerald showed me a scrapbook of news clippings that have been written about him over the years - amongst other roles he worked as a high profile magician/illusionist for decades - but the book ended at about 1990, so it's nice to think that he now has a new clipping to paste in there.
