Soumya Deb: Soumya's Brainstorms

Comments: Translated from Bengali to English, with B&W illustrations. From Sam Dalal's description: "When I told Soumya we would put out his better ideas in book form, I again received twice as much material as we could possibly use. This book brings you the best and most practical of his “brain storms” spanning from novel card tricks to easy to make and perform illusions." Now available as an eBook.
