New Inside Magic Feature: Effect of the Week

 

Steve Allen

Some of the readers of Inside Magic will be too young to recall, but there was a time when television shows (usually done live) would take a moment from the regular program to tell the audience about a new sponsor of the show.  Johnny Carson used to have a sample of the sponsor’s product, he’d tell the audience a little about it and thank the sponsor for the support and urge the television audience to buy as much of the sponsor’s wares as possible.

Tonight, I’d like to take a moment out of the Inside Magic regular programming ? the usual variety, variety, variety ? welcome a new sponsor and friend to the Inside Magic pages.  George Robinson, Jr. has been in love with magic since his youth.  He has a near-encyclopedic knowledge of our art and the great magicians who performed before us.  His desire to keep the quality and integrity of our art is exemplified by the work done through his Viking Magic Company. 

Based in my wife’s family’s hometown of Edinburg, Texas, Mr. Robinson has built a successful business in our art by focusing not on business but the art.  He purchased the rights to manufacture items from John Pomeroy, Joe Stevens, Paul Harris, Al Cohen, Oscar Munoz, Phillip Morris, Tony Spina, Ken Allen, Fantasio, Hank Lee, John Cornelius, Max Suko, Jim Swoger, Bob Kline, Larry Becker, Lee Earle, Derek Lever, Paul Osborne, Mark Wilson, Gene Gonzalez, Bill Merlin Palmer, Vince Carmen, the late Tony Andruzzi, Dick Zimmerman, Rich Bloch, Nick Ruggiero, Zany Blaney, Sunil Batra, and Andy Martin.  In the year 2000, Mr. Robinson also took on the assets of the famous Collector’s Workshop.

What a nice segue to our Collector’s Workshop Effect of the Week.  Each week, we’ll have one of the great effects featured right here for your consideration.

I should tell you that we?re not including Mr. Robinson?s effects because of any promotional payments.  His magic will be featured because it?s great stuff and he?s a great guy.  Check out his website by going to
