The Magical Production of a Pack of CardsT
his is a logical opening for a series of feats with cards. You prepare byplacing the deck in your lower left vest pocket, one end protruding so thatyou can readily take hold of it. If necessary push a silk handkerchief intothe pocket first.
To begin you show a large silk foulard, youshake it out and turn it around, then, holdingone corner in your teeth and the opposite cornerin your left hand, you stretch the silk out so thatyour vest is covered. You thrust your right handunder the silk, pushing out its center, which youseize with your left hand. Turn this hand overquickly, causing the silk to fall down over it, andrevealing-nothing. So you try again.You stretch the silk out as before and againthrust your right hand behind it. This time youseize the deck, pull it out of the vest pocket and thrust one corner againstthe middle of the silk. You let the corners of the silk drop and quicklygrasp the pack through the silk from the outside with your left hand. Turnthis hand so that the silk falls over it, exposing the cards which you atonce fan the fullest possible extent.
The Cardini Snap Color ChangeY
ou hold the pack in your left hand, face outwards, almost upright. Insertthe top joint of the third finger under the face card, the tips of the otherthree fingers resting on its outer side. Bend the card up lengthwise slightlyby squeezing it between the thumb and fingers. Fig. 2.Call attention to the face card by snapping itseveral times with the nail of the right secondfinger. At the very moment that you snap thecard a third time, sharply extend the left fingers,carrying away the face card, so that its free sidestrikes against the right hand at the middle of the inner side of the right forefinger.Pressing the right hand downwards you bend thecard in half lengthwise, and at the same instantgrasp the pack by its outer corners between thethumb and forefinger. The second and thirdfingers are extended, being kept close to the forefinger, and the littlefinger is also stretched out but held separate from the others. The secondcard of the deck is thus exposed (Fig. 3), while the first card is hidden by
the three fingers of the right hand, left fingers retaining their grip of thecard.Under cover of the surprise caused by thechange, a moment later you move the handsbackward and upward a little, as if to show thenew card to better advantage, and bending theleft fingers inward you bring the first card backunder the pack. The move is hidden by the backof the right hand which lifts the pack slightly toallow the card to pass. Complete the action byrunning the thumb and fingers along the ends of the cards, squaring them, then casually show theright hand empty.The change is instantaneous. I am indebted to the Ace of manipulators,Cardini, for this fine addition to the standard Color changes.
New Palm of Top Card and a Color Change
ou have pack in your left hand. You bring your right hand over to takethe deck, holding the hand vertically with its back to the audience. As thehand arrives at the deck, with the left thumb push the top card halfway off to the right, letting it strike against the right forefinger, but holding theleft side of this card firmly on the deck; continue the movement of theright hand and grasp the pack between the thumb at the rear end and thetwo middle fingers at the outer end. The top card is thus doubled overlengthwise and you can then turn the packupright with its face to the front in perfectsafety. Practically the whole of the palm isvisible to the audience. You replace the pack inthe left hand, as that hand moves away the bentcard springs automatically against the rightpalm.To apply this sleight to an effective COLORCHANGE you take the pack in right hand,bending the top card as described above. Holdthe deck up, displaying the face card andnaming it, turn to the left, transferring pack toleft hand and palming the bent card in right. Turn the pack over in left
