In his first book, Danish magician Nicolaj Christensen asks plenty of questions, but doesn’t serve up the answers. Rather than preach a certain view as the truth, Blue Moon is simply a catalyst for your own reflections. It shows you the tip of the iceberg and inspires you to dive in for the rest on your own. 

The book contains seven close-up card routines and six essays on various aspects of magic, such as realism, the magic moment, magician-in-trouble, and matters of expression. The material is strong magic you can do, taught in detail with clear black-and-white photographs, but they are actually included as case studies. Thorough notes explain Nicolaj’s thinking behind each routine, engaging you in the analysis and motivating you to look at your own magic with new eyes. Agree or disagree, you will find yourself faced with issues you have not considered before. 

Blue Moon invites you to explore your own thoughts on magic, thoughts you maybe didn’t know you had. If you are looking for something truly inspiring to help you and your magic grow, look no further. 

Paperback. 163 pages. In English.

"Magicians: read this if you want to be enlightened, challenged and inspired. Oh... and to learn some great card tricks!" - Mark Elsdon (UK)

"Blue Moon is one of the reasons students of magic should read books and not only watch videos: you better understand the author/creator's thoughts and motivations behind the effects and learn the entire structure and strategy that went into building the tricks." - Michael Frederiksen (DK)

"The details, the academic approach and the nuances are really inspiring. I like that you made me rethink all the magic concepts that are part of my philosophy in magic. The last persons who did that to me were Darwin Ortiz and Tommy Wonder." - Fritz Alkemade (NL)

"Blue Moon is an ambitious and well-written book - by a young magic firebrand. A love letter to magic." - Klaus Mulbjerg (DK)

"Blue Moon is not another book filled with plain theory or just some tricks, but it is a balanced combination of both thoughtful theory and nice personal magic. The academic approach to this book is stunning as well as in detail provided crediting of techniques used in the book." - Filip Kouzelník Stružka (CZ)

"Reading Blue Moon is a transformative experience. If you’re willing to seriously think about magic, this is the book to get. Though they are just there to be examples, the routines explained are tried and tested pieces of magic that are worth the price of admission. A truly enjoyable book." - Benjamin Jønch-Sørensen (DK) 

"The essays [...] are fascinating and his arguments convincing. They are also practical, providing questions to ask yourself and actions you can take to apply his thoughts or theories. [...] These discussions are very useful, as the ideas shared here will be applicable to many other tricks you perform." - Samuel Wheeler (UK)
