Retention Vanishes

by Professor Spellbinder

There are a great many sleight of hand moves to vanish small objects, but I only use two... the most ordinary and natural of them all. As a Wizard, I do not want anyone to know I can even perform "sleight of hand." While young magicians delight in learning fancy manipulations of cards and coins that they call "flourishes," young Wizards must avoid such showy displays because they take away from the "magic" and turn it into a fancy juggling trick.

However, there are at least two sleights all magicians and Wizards should learn, and those are the two retention vanishes I describe in this article. My Wizard friend, Professor Kyva, poses for the photos to make everything clear to the beginningest beginner.
