Ricky Jay on the mystery of Matthias Buchinger, calligraphy and practicing magic with an injured hand.
Ricky Jay is a man with a particular set of skills. He is a magician, a master of sleight-of-hand, a historian, a writer, an actor and a collector of the odd and the unusual. He is also easily recognized for his performances in television and movies, including the films Magnolia, Boogie Nights and The Prestige.
Jay is also an avid collector of rare books and manuscripts often associated with magic, gambling, fraud, confidence games and unusual entertainers. His passion for unusual performers led him to write his latest book on a peculiar 18th century German man, Matthias Buchinger, who despite being born with no hands and legs, was an extremely skilled performer and calligrapher.
Now, Jay sits down with Jesse to talk about his discovery of Matthias Buchinger, his own theories about Buchinger’s life and works, and why suffering an injury to his hand led him to an even greater appreciation of Buchinger’s skill.
Matthias Buchinger: The Great German Living is available now from Siglio Press. A corresponding show is currently on exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It’s called “Wordplay: Matthias Buchinger’s Drawings from the Collection of Ricky Jay”.
