The Complete Professional Pickpocket Book by David Alexander
From Thomas Baxter:
A great friend of mine, David Alexander, passed away tragically a couple of years ago. David was a fine performer and very successful with Magic and as a Stage Pickpocket.
Back in the 1970s he wrote a book on the Stage Pickpocket Act, which he mimeographed and sold to his friends - about 50 copies in all.
His widow, Cassidy Alexander, is a terrific, award-winning portrait artist. She does the illustrations for my books. Cassidy asked me if I would like to publish David's pickpocket book as a hard cover book. I've just sent the files to the printer.
It has turned out to be an excellent book. Cassidy has done new illustrations, and I'll updated and re-edited the book and redesigned it and the cover.
