Fred Kaps

Fred Kaps was possibly the greatest magician the Netherlands has ever produced. I was never terribly enthusiastic about his work until I saw him do the famous Chinese Sticks trick. I suppose I had hardly taken much notice of him until that time. It seems I missed something! Anyway I came across this clip devoted to his work. I think it will be of great interest to magic aficionados.

There are quite a few  video clips of old time magicians on this site. Here is rather a famous one by the name of Arnold De Biere. He was particularly well known for his rendition of the egg bag trick. I do this trick myself and it is one of my favourites. Anyway here is Arnold at work.
