Last month, legendary magic designer John Gaughan was gracious enough to open his workshop doors for “The Doug Henning Project.” John was one of the website’s original interviewees, and at that time he had briefly mentioned to me that in his collection he owned Doug’s original Trunk Illusion from “World of Magic IV.” Never one to pass up a good Doug story, I eventually circled back around to this and asked if I could profile it for the website.
John went above and beyond for me, and had his team of people fork lift it down, clean it up, and operate it for the first time in years. What you’re about to see this week will be a mixture of pictures and video from that day. It was truly a remarkable time.
Special thanks to John’s assistant Jeffrey Chang for everything he did that day.
