I know that this is something that Jeff McBride or back in the day Norm Nielson would do on stage. The performer would interlace their fingers and show both palms to be empty, then he/she would turn their palms toward their chest, and then back to the audience, but now those palms show that a card is there, and it can be repeated to produce more cards.

This could be a brief interlude in-between effects. I am also thinking about doing a diminishing pressure fan, I know how to do it without gaffs, it's done 3 times.

Is this a good idea or a bad one?

Can you give me a source for the interlock production of cards?

Hi Logan,

I´m not really a card-manipulator and besides Jeff McBride´s DVDs or Jeff Sheridan´s I think the first source was in Cliff Green´s book Professinal Card Magic, but I just looked up in Apocalypse

there Vic Sendax is mentioned to be the originator of Interlocked Card Production (Apocalypse, Vol. 1, No. 6, June 1978...or in the blue compilation p. 61).

Hope it helps,

Axel

I think Kaufman has a booklet on the Interlocked production of cards.

I've never done card manipulation but one of my teachers Romaine, (The Monarch of Manipulation) was one of the best.  The only thing I know about that particular move that he did so well, is he always told people it was one of the hardest moves he ever learned.    But of course what is difficult for one is easy for another. 

I have bad luck with Links but if you go to Penguin magic and type in Romaine The Monarch of Manipulation there is a dvd and you can watch a clip of the man at work.  For those of you who know Romaine.  No such intro is needed.  The man is brilliant.  http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/915

Maybe I mis-remembered the Kaufman book. I'll look.

Yep - it is COINS not cards. Sorry!

According to Expert Card Technique (1940), the Interlocked Production belongs to Cliff Green, and was being used by him around 1920.

Here's what a search of "Interlocked Production" produced from the Denis Behr archive:

http://www.conjuringarchive.com/list/search?keyword=Interlocked+Production

There's a reference to Channing Pollock in 1954.

Inspired by Barden's post on Favorites from Genii Magazine? thread I was browsing the 75th edition of Genii (November-December 2012) and came across An Original Interlocked Card Production by Jeff Sheridan on p172. May be worth investigating.
