New York-based magician Joshua Jay was profiled in the New York Times yesterday in an article that looks at his performing career as well as his environment at home, including his collection of magic memorabilia, books, props, and other items. On the Times's web site a video accompanying the article shows Jay performing for tricks to spectators on the High Line and also provides a view of some of the items in his magic collection. The article is connected to the publicity campaign for Jay's latest book, Big Magic for Little Hands: 25 Astounding Illusions for Young Magicians, which is mentioned in the piece. Jay also recently filmed a segment for the "Today" show, scheduled to air January 1.
