The term “Guide” or “Publisher” is what the name is generally applied to when people refer to magicians in books. The term “Guide” means a source for information on performing magic, or a book that contains a lot of tips about different kinds of tricks. The term “Publisher” on the other hand, refers to the person who actually published that guide. Magicians who publish their own books are known as “guide publishers.” Magicians who work in television as “guide hosts” or as the magicians on stage are often called “publishers.”
Guide books are very useful to anyone who wants to learn magic. Most magicians publish their books under this category, because that is what they do. But not all magicians publish their books. Many magicians choose to self publish their books to give them more exposure and credibility. Some people believe that they can get better publicity by publishing their own books instead of working for someone else.
Most magicians have a good amount of experience in performing their trick. The trick is important to the magicians, so they want to make sure that every aspect of the trick is perfect before they publish their book. Guide books will normally contain tips about the best way to perform the trick, the right kind of clothing and accessories to wear while performing, or how to get the best audience reaction.
Guide books do not come cheap. A good guide costs around $50. But since it is the ultimate reference, you will be sure to find an inexpensive book that contains useful tips about performing tricks. Guide magician do not always share their secrets in these books, so you should also ask questions about any aspect of the trick that you are unsure of.
The best tip that I can give you about learning to be a magician is this: It is best that you do not try to do your trick on stage. Stage shows are dangerous. Usually the audience will think that the magician is trying to pull the wool over their eyes. The most popular magicians in the world perform on stage, but you should know that there are people who have tried to do their tricks on a stage and they failed. Try your best to focus your mind on what you are doing.
Some great stage magicians include David Copperfield, Lance Burton, and David Blaine. You can learn some of their secrets from their books, which are usually available at online websites. Guide magician do not reveal all of their tricks in their books, but there are some tips that they do share in their guides. Some helpful hints include the use of mentalism, stage props, and being unpredictable.
