The "I Hate Card Tricks"

Book of Card Tricks

Volume 2:


by B. Robert Pulver



The Origami Queen

This effect was inspired by Jim Steinmeyer's "Origami" illusion made famous by David Copperfield.

As I stated in the preface of The "I Hate Card Tricks" Book of Card Tricks, a literal adaptation of this effect would not be very deceptive using a flat playing card.  I felt that this remarkable illusion deserved to be represented, however, so I set out to develop a method using cards that would be astonishing.

The Effect:

A signed Queen is placed into an envelope.  The envelope is folded into a small packet.  When it is unfolded, the signed Queen is removed completely intact.  It has not been folded.
