The Ethics of Magic

Welcome to the official website for the ethics of the art of magic. This site was put together by a team of magicians and researchers, with the help of different books, websites and message boards and with the input and approval from many magicians and even laymen in order to make whatever you find on here as correct, complete and up-to-date as possible, with as goal to inform magicians on how to be the most respected artists in the world.

Please respect our work and do not publish any of the text elsewhere. Link to this website instead. That is the only way to make sure that the ethics are and stay complete, correct and up-to-date.
