Johnny Thompson is one of the last of the living legends in his era. There is only on Vernon, Miller, Elmsley, Jennings, Marlo, and only one Thompson. Fortunately, ten years ago Johnny documented FOUR VOLUMES and nearly his entire close-up repertoire. This is a collection of private magic lessons from one of the formative figures in our art. it boggles the mind how these volumes are not in the collection of EVERY serious magician. Now, here's the really great news: we can now offer the complete collection as a download. You can finally enjoy this material on the go, on your computer, or just about anywhere.
