There are two main types of Cards
Across. One form is Cards to Pocket in which
some cards disappear from your hand, apparently skitter up your
sleeve, across your body, and end up in your pocket, or some
variation on that theme. The other is usually in the form of
cards in two sealed envelopes or boxes, in which cards disappear
from one and end up in the other. This e-Book studies methods
used in the past and comes up with some new variations for the
While both forms can be
entertaining, given the right type of presentation, both are
magically flawed, as I will try to explain at the end of this
e-Book. But first, I give you models and examples from the past,
from Harlan Tarbell, U.F. Grant, Michael Zens, Paul Le Paul, with
my own (ahem!) improvements and tweaks to give it that Wizard
touch of which I am so fond.
Most of these effects can
be followed by one of the Diminishing
Card routines given in the previous chapter, as a way of explaining how the cards manage to
get across without seeing them go (they shrink down to atom size
and that makes it very easy!).
Qua-Fiki demonstrates one of the methods found
in the E-Book.
