An International Collection... Decades of Entertainment !
Mark and Nani's careers started well before their first local TV shows in Dallas. Blossoming with their network show, "The Magic Land of Allakazam" they kept so much from their origins.
The "Magic Circus" was the first of the color magic TV specials, setting a new standard for modern magic. And of course all of the amusement park shows and trade shows around the world. Sets, Costumes, Props, and all kinds of advertising memorabilia.
Their history making performing tour of China in 1980, and decades of "Incredible Acrobats of China" shows in the US. Puppet shows and live "Marvelous Magical Burger King" custom made shows. Every time Mark had a new idea, he had beautiful concept art created. And there are the other sales tools too, Kodak Glossy prints, custom corporate magic gifts, and so much more covering decades of productivity.
The Mark Wilson Complete Course in Magic is perhaps the most popular text of magic instruction in the world. Published in many languages, we have the original hand made paste up boards, printing negatives, photos and art used during the creation of the book that has influenced magicians of multiple generations. Mark continued to create new projects right up to his passing in 2021... Just a few weeks shy of his 92nd birthday, his mind had new magical visions of things to come.
why we do it
It's time to share...
I have learned that there are people around the world that have warm memories of my parent's magic. I'd be selfish to keep it all. So my brother Mike, and mother Nani have given me permission to share Nani Darnell and Mark Wilson's life achievements with you all. Please help us spread the word, because eventually we will list something here for everyone. And like I said before, "if you don't see something you are interested in, please write to me and let me know!" (By the way, I'm the baby in the photo.)
Auctions that are fun and easy to do, many with "buy now" options.
I've run live auctions, but I really enjoy participating in online auctions. It's so easy to bid from home, work, or on the road. And with all the different categories, be sure to come back often for the new listings. Even if you've never participated in an online auction, I want to make it easy for you. I'm happy to help. Soon, you will be a master at it.
What they say
Magician, Lecturer, Writer
Mark & Nani: Your ground-breaking shows are the "for real." They are the gold standard which the rest of us try to reach if we could do it as magically as you. Thank you for setting the bar so high back then, for now, and for many generations to come.
