Ta da!!!!!

(and other fanfare-esque noises)

Owing to the fact that he is rubbish at marketing himself...

This is to announce the launch of the most awesome book on Contact Juggling to hit the shelves since, well... ever wink

For those who don't know:

Drew Batchelor (aka Glass) has been a highly respected part of the UK juggling/object manipulation scene for the last 10 years...

His innovative approach to poi, staff and contact juggling have inspired people and ideas for years.

And now... after two years of hard work, planning, sleepless nights and expense... he has completed his first tutorial book... Multiball Contact.

The book is in several sections and will teach you the basics, and advanced, techniques of contact juggling (no clicks... make it look like an illusion...).

It has great, easy-to-understand, pictures; excellent descriptions and handy hints to refine your ball manipulation skills biggrin

Anyone who has seen Drew contact juggle, or has taken one of his workshops at juggling conventions, will know that he is the most able CJ teacher around...

So, if you want to improve your contact, if your ceilings are too low for poi, or if you just want something else to amaze your friends... get this book. biggrin

You'll be supporting a local artist and learning stuff at the same time. Win biggrin

Copies can be pre-ordered here:
http://www.ministryofmanipulation.com/shop.php

And the book will be ready for delivery on Friday smile


Best wishes
Clare
