|Handsome Jack, etc. Book by John Lovick and Handsome Jack|
Handsome Jack, Etc. is the anticipated collection of John Lovick's parlor and close-up material. It was released at Magic Live to great fanfare.
John Lovick has garnered awards and attention for his alter-ego performance character, Handsome Jack, a male model in love with himself. The premise is that Handsome Jack has written a book claiming credit for all of Lovick's magic, so Lovick clarifies, redacts, and adds to the text as the book's editor. So as you're reading audience-tested magic, you'll also be laughing aloud at the tension between these two alter-egos.
Magic royalty have blessed the book, with accolades from Teller, Blaine, Carbonaro, Delgaudio, Hartling, and more. It's a must-read, and we're proud to offer this wonderful book to you.
