VALE JIM MC KEAGUE




I am sorry to inform you that my dear friend and magical mentor figure Jim Mc Keague passed away this morning. Jim became an important part of our family and had a big input into all my magic routines.

Jim published three books for the magical fraternity including; “The Best 200 Tricks With A Svengali Deck”, “A Rediscovery Of Ancient Astrology” and “Whispering Fingers. A First Easy Lesson In Sleight Of Hand”.

He was also considered by many (including the late Bob Read!!) to be THE AUTHORITY on the history of the CUPS AND BALLS. In the March 1997 Issue of Stan Allan’s “Magic Magazine”,  Jim discussed the Cups and Balls in great detail as well as retold the story of his adventure to Beni Hassan Egypt to be the first person in history to actually photography the Tomb wall that had a Hieroglyphic (apparently!?) depicting the Cups and Balls.

In recent years Jim was introduced to the wonderful world of the internet and made his Svengali Deck E- book as well as two comprehensive websites (The Indian Rope Trick and The History Of A Fortune Teller) and available to the Magic Community:




My Sympathies to Gwen McKeague and Jim’s Family in Far North Queensland.
