The classic paradox but in a box = Parabox. Your assistant enters a small box only just big enough to hold them, then the box is filled with another box, spears and finally opened up completely to show there’s nothing inside – no two objects can occupy the same space!
Utilizing a principle I have been refining for 20 years and endlessly refined and improved using the latest state of the art 3D design technology to make the design as practical, portable and deceptive as possible. Designed to fit within the “Harbin style” of wheel-on-and-perform compact illusions it is designed to be practical and deceptive everywhere from a tiny cabaret stage to the biggest theatre – there’s no black-art, mirrors, trapdoors, special lighting or deceptive steps to worry about and the entire illusion has been designed to fit in the back of a car and wheel through a normal doorway.
You get the complete, detailed, plans for this illusion for just $50 – these aren’t your usual “magic plans” drawn 30 years ago and missing lots of important information but rather full colour A3 size, 15 page, workshop-ready, fully annotated plans that you can hand straight to any craftsman for them to build without any specialist magic knowledge needed.
What everyone is saying about Thomas’ previous illusions plans…
“Thomas has a very keen sense of what is going on in the world of illusion building as well as the world of performers. He offers some very sound advice… Hands down this is one of the best investments an illusionist could make if they are looking for a fresh approach to the world of illusion”
– Paul Romhany – Vanish Magazine
“What a wonderful work. Every magician in the land should be forced to learn it by heart before inflicting their performance on an unsuspecting world.”
– Andrew o’Connor – TV magic producer
“This Book is enormous… genuinely surprised me… I haven’t seen this concept before… just got (their) money’s worth… it’s a very interesting idea… you’ll find some interesting ideas here…. (it’s) a high price but relative to what a professional might get out of it it’s a small investment”
– David Britland – Genii Magazine
“You write so well – it’s a VERY nice book”
– John Taylor
“The large blocks of text might make for difficult reading but the soundness of his advice and the sensible observations about how illusions work make the grind quite worth it. This is obviously a work of love… (Thomas) delivers an essay that should be read by magicians of any genre… (he) breaks down the difficult task of being oneself on stage, giving the reader a good starting point that could lead to some interestingly diverse ends. The price of the book is hefty…. But if you are looking for a few new illusions to add to your stage show, then Confictura might be exactly what you need.”
– Jared Kopf – Magic Magazine
“Fantastic!… I have read Steinmeyer, Parker, Osborne, etc. your tome has the most usable information I have seen in an illusion book. Very well done…”
– Patrick Wolford
“Congratulations Tom on Confictura, I was thrilled to see what you’ve come up with. It’s a valuable and insightful work obviously underpinned by your contemporary, innovative and exciting illusion designs, but more importantly focusing on the rarely discussed elements of stagecraft such as material selection and music choice. I feel sure it will become a must read work for all interested in illusion magic”
– Chris Murphy
“…and it looks great, very interesting articles and I like the ideas of the illusions, I will read it carefully!”
– Daniel Ka
“Thank you so much for the amazing book… WOW!!! It looks amazing!!!”
