Last week The Shropshire Magic Society saw the visit of Steve Short, who gave one of the most entertaining lectures we have had at our society. The title of the lecture was ‘The Supreme Magic Company’, founded by the late Edwin Hooper.

Steve gave us an insight about how the firm was formed and eventually how it became the largest magic dealing business in the world. The story was told with rare and unseen photos and video clips and also some very funny stories of running an unusual business.

In the second half of the lecture, Steve gave a slick demonstration of a selection of Supreme exclusives, mainly wooden and metal effects, including the wonderful Cube in a Tube, Silken Lady, production boxes, children's effects and mindreading magic, finished off with the Fantastic Frame and Cabby.

This is a very entertaining lecture that will be of interest to all ages and I would highly recommend this to any magic society.
