Asher headed to Japan for lecture tour

October 30th, 2009 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under General, Products

The only Thunderbird better than the one created by Lee Asher rolled off the line in ’57.

Part of the thrill of releasing the Arcane deck was to offer an Arcane version of one of the greatest, power-packed four-ace productions. If you haven’t seen his sweet performance clip in the Artist Gallery, stop what you’re doing right now, and check it out. It’s OK, we’ll wait. Go ahead.

But if you live in Japan, you can see Asher do it in real life. Lucky.

During the month of November, the creator of the Asher Twist and the Diving Board Double will be lecturing across Japan, talking about technique and presentation. Asher is one of the best in the business, and has a prolific library of solid sleights used by countless professionals. His plan for the Japan tour is simple: He will supply powerful information that will encourage you, inspire you and help take your magic to the next dimension.

Here’s where Asher will be when:

Nov. 11-17: Tokyo
Nov. 14: Yokohama and Tokyo
Nov. 18: Shizuoka
Nov. 19: Hamamatsu
Nov. 20: Kanazawa
Nov. 21: Nagoya and Osaka
Nov. 22: Okayama and Hiroshima
Nov. 23: Yamaguchi and Fukuoka

If you want to see him in one (or all) of the cities above, put in your request to Lee directly. He will send you the proper information on how to attend. He tells us that he WILL bring some Arcane decks from his personal collection to give away as prizes while in Japan. But the cards are the cake. From participants of Sorcerer’s Safari to professionals who have worked with him, Asher is one of the most inspirational and insightful lecturers and creators in the field.
