.The Darkest Corners
The Darkest Corners. Ben Hart by Neil Kelso.
This is a textbook for professional theatrical magicians, based upon the work of famous theatre and television magician Ben Hart. The book is written by lifelong friend and collaborator Neil Kelso, himself a recognised expert in Magic on stage and screen.
The book features routines, scripts, and essays on performance magic theory. Since its launch in January 2020, The Darkest Corners has received excellent reviews and has been one of the best sellers in its category.
"I might have to just buy every copy of this book personally as the secrets are too good I wanna keep them for myself."
"Ben Hart is one of the great hopes for the future of magic. He fuses it’s past with his own unique vision of its future producing original material that has a timeless quality. The Darkest Corners is a triumphant collection of great magic. Equally important to the book is the voice of its author, Bens long time friend and a unique artist in his own right, Neil Kelso. Kelso infuses the text with their relationship, shared experiences and observations bringing insight, humour and deep understanding. This is a great book and one I suspect will become a treasure chest of inspiration for magicians all around the world.”

"You can add this title to the tiny list of modern classics that contain the working material that all the top performers actually use. Highest recommendation.”
