Devious Standards is the second essay collection from Jamy Ian Swiss, and it contains twenty of the most acclaimed essays from one of magic’s most distinguished and celebrated authors. When it was first published, Devious Standards received rave reviews in Magic, Genii, and Linking Ring, and it continues to garner praise from magic’s brightest lights. Vanishing Inc. Magic is proud to offer Devious Standards in a new edition, with brand-new typeset, layout, and cover design. This volume now matches Shattering Illusions and the brand-new Preserving Mystery in size and style.
Upon its release, Eric Mead praised Devious Standards in Genii magazine, declaring that, “The finished book is as beautiful as it is challenging, informative, stimulating and a genuine pleasure to read.”
