Tiny Bird Press Houdini: The Great Escape Print by Rob Schwager Release Details

Details from Rob Schwager:

I first learned about Harry Houdini when I was a little kid, one lazy Sunday afternoon while watching the 1953 film starring Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, on TV.
In that movie, there's mention of a great magician, named Von Schwager.

Naturally, I had to find out more about this magician who shared a similar surname with me.

I poured over whatever Houdini books that I could get at the library to find out about this mysterious "Von Schwager" person. Turns out, he was just a character made up for the movie. However, in doing all this reading, I came to learn a great deal about the incredible man known as Houdini. I became obsessed. I learned of his meager upbringing. His drive to excel at whatever he did. His incredible work ethic. How reading a book about magician Robert-Houdin, at an early age changed his life and set him on the path that would eventually make "Houdini" a household name. He was the catalyst for my life-long love of the art of magic.

In celebration of Harry Houdini's 139th birthday, (March 24th) I'm releasing this print, as a small tribute to him. The man who had made a giant impact on my life and inspired my imagination.

Happy birthday Harry. Your legend lives on….
