Hopefully you got your order for The Magic of Johnny Thompson in because Magicana has reported via Twitter that it’s officially sold out:

Give your local magic shop a call to see if they still have any left, because once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Johnny Thompson (aka The Great Tomsoni) is a living legend, a performer who has touched lives with his humor, and an inventive creator who has contributed his magical expertise to the acts of Penn & Teller, Lance Burton, Criss Angel, and more. Now, you can own a small portion of that legacy in a two-volume set of books called The Magic of Johnny Thompson, courtesy of Magicana.
The set is co-written by Thompson and fellow magician Jamy Ian Swiss (Shattering Illusions), and includes details and secrets behind many of Thompson’s famous tricks, including, according to Magicana, “The Cups & Balls, The Balls in the Net, The Egg Bag and The Gambler’s Ballad.” The set also features a ton of exclusive, unpublished material, including content written by Dai Vernon, Harry Riser, and Ed Marlo, and chapters about Thompson’s signature dove and silk magic.
If you’re interested in digging into this wealth of knowledge, this two-volume set is still available for pre-order through Magicana for $295 plus shipping. Each book is hardcover, comes bundled in a special slipcase, and according to a tweet from Magicana, each copy is individually signed by Thompson himself. There’s no exact ship date just yet, but they should be expected to go out “in coming weeks.”
Signed, sealed and delivered. Johnny Thompson receives (Vegas style, of course) the first of his epic boo, #TheMagicOfJohnnyThompson hot off the press! #ThankYouTeller @MrTeller for the #SpecialDelivery Shipping in coming weeks!
