with a softly odd sense of humor.
The result is truly magical.”

“No matter what kind of list I’d be asked to compile over magicians with desirable traits, Axel Adler would be at the top of every single one of them. Everything he does is intriguing, often in more ways than one. Axel’s work is branded with a keen sense for topology, and an astute grasp of dramatics. For years, he has been our own little Swedish secret, and now when he steps out in the world, you are in for a real treat.”
