Jack Parker Presents: The Magician's Ltd Cookbook (2007) is a "cookbook" of card magic, written by Andi Gladwin and Jack Parker.

This book offered a peak into the repertoires of some of the world's best card magicians. Stars such as David Acer, Allan Ackerman, Steve Draun, and David Solomon have all contributed fantastic tricks that range from incredibly easy to knuckle busting sleight of hand.

The story behind this book is inspiring. In 1989 Jack Parker was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. After a year of treatment he achieved a full remission from the illness, and decided that he'd like to give back to give back to The Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust—a charity that helped him when he was most in need. He collected magic from 23 of the world's top card magicians and along with Andi Gladwin started to compile a book of that fantastic magic.

Given how much they helped Jack, proceeds from this book will be donated to The Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust to help assist their ongoing Leukaemia research and everyone involved in the Magician's Ltd Cookbook has given their time generously and for free.
