A quarterly magic magazine written and edited by [[Richard Kaufman]], [[Stephen Hobbs]], and [[Jon Racherbaumer]], published by Richard Kaufman.

'''The Looking Glass''' contained new and novel close-up magic of the kind that elevated [[Richard's Almanac]] more than a decade earlier, as well as reviews and discussions on books, videos and marketed tricks of the day.
