OK, who's going?

The Magic Lantern Society's 7th Annual International Convention, that is. (I just have this image of people in cloaks dealing in, well, magic lanterns. But that's uncouth on my part. Still, what a dealers room that would be). The Victorian forerunner to the slide projector, you can read more about the history of the magic lantern here.

I heart Magic Lanterns. Remind me to show you The Magician and the Movies next time y'all come visit. Basically, magicians ended up killing their own fame/station/cache through their pioneering efforts first with the magic lantern, later with moving pictures.
