The art of conjuring was a lifelong obsession for Will Alma, and his collection reflects his engagement with all aspects of a magical life: performer, maker, publisher, collector and archivist.

Librarian Dominique Dunstan shares unexpected delights from the collection she has worked with for 20 years, as magician Nicholas Johnson takes you behind the curtain to glimpse the life and times of Alma and his circle.

This event is in partnership with Rare Book Week.
