Forget about his incredible looks, Handsome Jack’s skill, humor, and humility, make him a great writer of magic.David Blaine
Handsome Jack is two of the best magicians I know.Derek DelGaudio
This book is a vault of original, powerhouse material.Michael Carbonaro
Handsome Jack, Etc. is the anticipated collection of John Lovick’s parlor and close-up material. It was released at Magic Live to great fanfare, and is
now EXCLUSIVELY available for a limited time through Vanishing Inc. Magic. We have a very small quantity of these books, and we anticipate selling through them entirely, so if you’re interested, please order now.
We’re completely charmed by the premise of the book. John Lovick has garnered awards and attention for his alter-ego performance character, Handsome Jack, a male model in love with himself. The premise is that Handsome Jack has written a book claiming credit for all of Lovick’s magic, so Lovick clarifies, redacts, and adds to the text as the book’s editor. So as you’re reading audience-tested magic, you’ll also be laughing aloud at the tension between these two alter-egos.
Magic royalty have blessed the book, with accolades from Teller, Blaine, Carbonaro, Delgaudio, Hartling, and more. It’s a must-read, and we’re proud to offer this wonderful book to you.
