From making a motorcycle appear while surrounded by an audience, to making a car materialize within an empty enclosure, to walking through a giant industrial fan; this is the ultimate collection of professional illusions for the modern illusionist!

J C Sum is a professional illusionist and widely regarded as one of the most prolific modern illusion designers in the world today. The “Ultimate Illusion Collection: Trinity Edition” is the 3rd edition of J C’s illusion omnibus; 100% reformatted, expanded and updated into a single massive tome.

The Trinity Edition contains the latest versions of J C’s entire collection of illusions detailed in his professional illusion book trilogy, “Illusionary Departures”, “Equilateral” and “Urban illusions”, including new images as well as brand new illusion designs.

In addition, all the stage acts & illusions detailed in his book “Illusionism” are included in this collection. These are specialty illusions designed with mentalism plots.

As a bonus, the secret method of J C’s first mega illusion, “The Impossible Teleportation”, where he teleported 50 stories in 5 seconds in front of more than 9000 people, is outlined at the end of the book; along with a discussion on creating a mega stunt.

The illusions have been sorted and divided into nine categories, classified according to illusion effect & genre, to make referencing easy. This will allow the reader to cross-reference methods, ideas and presentations between similar illusions easily.

All illusion designs are detailed with full building plans, detailed fabrication instructions, material lists, performance and presentation notes.
