Rainbow Week 2021 – Black & White

"The two-story shop's walls were covered floor to ceiling with bookshelves and autographed black-and-white photographs of famous magicians. Every surface was cluttered with magical items of every sort: crystal balls, decks of cards, top hats, wands, capes, and even a human skull." -The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris
