Derren recently got a pretty big book of MAGIC from TASCHEN (MAGIC 1400s-1950s). The guys over at WhyDoWeRead heard and supplied us with a copy to give away to you lucky lot – oh and just to top if off we got Mr Brown to sign it too – imagine that in your xmas stocking. Enter here.

Don’t forget you can also enter the Polly Wants A Cracker competition at the Parrot Zoo. Entry numbers are low and theres 15 chances to win.

That must be some book TASCHEN puts out some pretty great work… its like they take a subject and literally fetishize it in their works. I don’t mean they dress it up in leather and latex, but rather collect almost every image and idea they can get their hands on relating to the subject and painstakingly and lovingly find the best way to present it. Even on subject matters I have zero interest in and even less curiosity about they have made me drop my jaw with their works. I hesitate to even call them ‘books’ because they are more works of art unto themselves.
