Just Magic

Conundrum is a Montreal-based independent magazine for magicians by the husband-and-wife team of Marc Trudel and Sophie-Anne Vachon. Conundrum aims to highlight the best magic, showcase magicians we admire and give back to the magic community.

The stunningly visual and fully illustrated magazine is completely ad-free and printed in Canada on really high quality paper. It almost feels like a book. Its pages are filled with interviews, profiles, tricks, discoveries and creative inspiration! We go in-depth and explore magic through a discerning eye. We also choose to focus on the good stuff. Let’s celebrate what makes magic so great.

Inside Issue 2 you’ll find:

Rematch: A highly visual piece of magic from Michel Huot that can be used in both social media and the real world.

Ring of Gyges: Eric Jones contributes this mesmerizing vanish of a ring with tons of great applications. It’s like having a cloak of invisibility between your hands!
