The Magic Memories (132)

Hello everyone!

Today’s topics are: A trick problem – The Bookworm (rising card from book)

These are The Magic Memories 132, gone online Sunday, July 9th, 2023, at 0:07h sharp.

All The Magic Memories from 2021, 2022, including the Magic Advent Calendar from 2020, can be found HERE.

I am right now (9th July, 2023) in Valladolid, Spain, and will report in The Magic Memories 134 about my adventures at the Spanish national convention. Meanwhile, thanks to the magic of IT, I was able to pre-write this blog, which will be a short one, but could keep you busy until next week.

A Trick Problem

I found the following item in a booklet from 1920, so, out of copyright, and would like to share it with those of you who like this sort things 🙂

It is from: Waller, Charles, Original Creations for Magicians Hitherto Kept “Up His Sleeve”, Thayer, USA 1920

I’m convinced a few among you can make a really nice worker out of this, as the effect is excellent, and the method very practical and deceptive. Also, it will work nicely as a stand-up performance piece for parlor and small theatres. Still, you will have to “do a little think”… but that’s the best way of making it “your own”.

To read and/or download the piece CLICK HERE.

Wish you all an excellent week!

  1. I had a thought while reading the download you provided this week (Thanks, Roberto!)

    Since the card originally placed in the book is still there, when the card has risen from the book, give the book to the spectator to hold. Take that card and vanish it using a card box, sleight of hand, or some other method. The spectator could then find the card back in the book.
