It was started in 2016, today it already hosts about 900 entries, and it keeps growing.

The layout is so Nineties, but the content is wonderful! Serious students of the past should find the articles and conference papers of magic historians particularly interesting. Here’s an excerpt:

Go and have a look, but don’t complain to me later that you have just spent two or three hours of browsing, reading, and marveling over there!
