This is from a series that I'm working on called, "Phoenix Rising", where I'm teaching effects from Phoenix Magazine.

Very nice, Rudy. I've performed Card Through Handkerchief using what might be described as a more traditional method, and more suitable for standing up. I'm head scratching over this and I like the fact it is conducive to close-up work too. Thanks for sharing it.

Thanks for taking the time to watch it, Andrew! This one is perfect for close up.
It's one of those effects that fooled my wife badly. "You shuffled the deck and I cut the cards. I saw both sides of the bandana." 

Not bad for a trick that is almost 80 years old!

There is a lot of deeply fooling, interesting magic in old texts.  And the best part is you don't have to perform it in a dimly lit, controlled angle manner either.  Sorry, had to say that, but I have grown weary of a lot of the stuff being foisted off on aspiring magicians these days.

Great job Rudy!  Where and when is this new series going to be released?

Thanks Ray and Anthony! I appreciate you taking a minute to watch it.

This is from a project that I'm currently working on that I've titled, "Phoenix Rising", where I'm teaching magic from the pages of Phoenix Magazine. It's kinda like my "Old Is New Again" series. So much great stuff buried in old books and magazines! I'm trying to dig up the gems and share them with the magic community!
 
I'm not sure how many would be interested, but I thought that maybe I could ask folks if they'd be willing to pay a small price (maybe $3 a month) and have access to Phoenix Rising, Old Is New Again, and all the upcoming volumes of the HaLo Project that I'm working on.

I don't expect to make a lot of money but thought that it would be a way for me to cover the expenses of the forum while offering something of value to those willing to invest in what I'm doing.
 
At this point, I'm just trying to get ahead of the 8 ball by filming as many videos as I can before making an official announcement.

That's not the card through handkerchief that I do. And because of you I'm not going to do it anymore.
Outstanding.
Have you thought of using Glorpy as your handkerchief?

Thanks Magic Harry! I'm glad that you like it.

Such a great idea to use Glorpy! I haven't owned one for years and may have to get one.

Great trick Rudy, thank you for posting. I am a fan of pieces that use handkerchiefs (or in this case a bandana).

Ray, I agree, there certainly are some fantastic pieces in the old tomes. Many of the new guys tend to eschew the old books in favour of the "latest and greatest" - not realising that their £15 download is in a book they could probably get for the same price, along with many other tricks.

Magic Harry - if your glorpy has the proper seams, try using it with the old broken and restored matchstick. Slight movements of the handkerchief can really add to the illusion that the match is restoring underneath.


Thanks again for posting the video, Rudy



Jim

Thanks Rudy, that was great!  In one of your posts above you said, “So much great stuff buried in old books and magazines!”  I couldn’t agree more.  Almost all my favorite tricks which I perform come from the older publications in my collection.

Let us know when your Phoenix Rising/Old Is New Again/HaLo Project video series is available.  You’re doing us a great service by spotlighting these “forgotten” effects.  And if it will help with TMF expenses, count me in!

Arthur

Great, Rudy. My first thought was that Glorpy would be a nice addition, too. It would better define the moment in which the magic happens.

This is also fortuitous timing for me, as I'm just about ready to start going through all of The Phoenix myself. It will be interesting to see which tricks you decide to spotlight.

Thanks for taking time to watch it, Chris! Please let me know if you discover any gems that I may be able to demonstrate and teach for this series.

Have a great day!

Hasn’t there been a Grippo book RSN for quite a long time?

I tried Googling the answer. What does RSN stand for? 😉

Well, I hope so.

The first time that I saw Jimmy perform was in this video:





When he pulled the king of diamonds out of his pocket, I was floored. I still don’t completely know how he does that.

Yep, fooled as well.

The presentation is really neat and the effect is top notch. No clue.

Is it "Clear Through" from issue 23?

The book has been published in 1981, but there is a softcover reprint at Houdini : https://www.houdini.com/the-magic-of-jimmy-grippo

There are a good few things in those contents that have peeked my interest. And that was after a quick glance.

And so the internal tug of war begins. On the one hand I know that I have enough books to last a lifetime (and I should really concentrate on getting through them all) and on the other I'm excited by all the great stuff still to be discovered. Usually the deciding factor is funds (or lack thereof).

This Grippo book looks very interesting. Thanks for posting the contents.

I can totally relate :)

I’ve got more books than I could actually work through in a lifetime. Harry’s Apocalypse volumes are enough to keep me busy for years to come.

It’s part of what makes magic such a fun and exciting journey. So many mysteries and secrets waiting to be discovered!

You're absolutely right, Rudy. It does make it a fun and exciting journey.

Funny you should mention Harry's work, because, after his interview the other night, I've decided it's high time I get myself some of his printed material (I have a VHS of his, but no means of playing it anymore - I didn't think that one through properly). It's next on my wish list : )

I'm glad to hear that. Check out Harry's website at http://www.harryloraynemagic.com and you'll find lots of great books. He'll autograph them too!

As he suggested in the conference call, I'd start with Close Up Card Magic.

Take care,

Rudy

It seems Harry's sold out of Close Up Card Magic, Rudy. Which is a shame, as it's the one I'd like to start with. I think he has it as a PDF though. I just like the hard copy.

Thanks for info.

I agree. A entire career could be made out of books from the Kaufmann-Greenberg Era and earlier.

It is a shame that Close Up Magic is trending towards purely visual effects and not mysteries.

Andrew,

Close Up Card Magic can be found on the second hand market place.

It might seem expensive at first but I'm sure you'll get more than what you'll pay for if you're serious about learning magic from one of its best teacher.

I believe you're in Scotland. There are two copies available at the moment in the UK on Abebooks.

Hope this helps,

L.

Thank you for the info, Lucas. I appreciate it.

I had searched earlier today and noticed them on Abebooks. They're very reasonably priced. I certainly recognise the value in those pages, so I'm looking forward to getting stuck in.

Again, thanks for taking the time to look that up and pass on the information.

Take care for now.

Andrew
