Is There a Magic Word?

"I don't know what to do! Is there a magic word I should say?"
"I don't know, is there a magic word you should say?" said the toad, and turned over.
—Terry Pratchett, The Wee Free Men (2006)


Don't miss this clip of our eccentric short talk entitled "Jeff McBride and His Precursors," in which we trace one stage magician's effect on art backwards through time.

What a wonderful lecture on McBride! I have an even greater appreciation for this fine magician's artistry.

Listening to your talk, I was thinking how interesting it would be to explore the manifold antecedents of the Tarot.
