    I’ve loved his work since I first heard of him. He does with one hand, what most can’t do with two. Imagine the challenges he must have faced. Reinventing almost every card trick, sleight, routine etc. that he then had to master. What a treat it would have been to see him in action. Bravo Mr. Lavand! Bravo!

    Rene Lavand IS a Magical Artist of the Highest Caliber, his thinking, presentation, & card work are truly amazing. He is fun to watch, and shears his magic readily with other magicians. Bravo MR. Lavand!

    He’s still alive and 81. I’ve never seen him live but I would very much like to.
