The Latin word for Book is Liber. Liber is the root word for Liberty which is the quality or state of being free; the power to do as one pleases: freedom from physical restraint: freedom from arbitrary or despotic control: the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges: the power of choice. Houdini Books is all of the above and more. We are publishers of great authors who have these qualities in mind. Whether the reader wants to explore the world, learn magic, harness technology, grapple philosophy, crunch numbers, learn the inside story of the mob and true crime, laugh or escape from reality, Houdini Books wants to deliver the reader to that place. In being the delivery medium to our readers, in our opinion, it is not about the green, but about VERITAS, In Roman mythology, Veritas, meaning truth, was the goddess of truth, a daughter of Saturn and the mother of Virtue.
What began as a necessity for printing the collateral printed items for Houdini Magic Shops turned into a publishing house for the writer? Houdini Publishing has more equipment for booklets, perfect binding and hard binding than 98% of all printing facilities.
Geno Munari began Houdini's Magic Shop in the MGM Grand Adventure Theme Park. In this bold endeavor, there became a need to supply additional instructional and technical collateral for many of the magic, pranks and gags supplied to tourists, locals and the worldwide market. The simple printed booklet enhanced perceived value and made the specific sales item more appealing.
Simple multipage instructions led to the creation of stapled and perfect bound books, posters, postcards, and even hardbound books. All of this need grew from necessity!
