The Original Manuscript

The Original Manuscript

Traditionally annual membership in the MCA has provided members with two benefits. The first was four issues of Magicol which, under David Meyer’s guidance, presented a superb blend of articles, reviews and commentary. The second was the opportunity to attend the annual Magic Collectors’ Weekend, usually held in Chicago.

Well the price of membership in the MCA hasn’t changed, but the benefits associated with membership certainly have. Yes, you will still receive four issues of Magicol, the first to be out very soon. (Design wizard Michael Albright has been tweaking the look and feel of the journal.  It will be at the printers soon.) You still have the chance to attend the annual conference, but at a discounted registration fee not available to non-members. We have also retooled the website – it features several online exhibitions that we hope you will enjoy. Soon, the site will also have a “Members-Only” area where we will post items of special interest.  (More on that in future blogs – stay tuned.)
