Re: Kaufman and Company Publishing Schedule for 2017

My wife has finished the layout of Ryan Matney's book ("Spoiler Alert!") and she's fixing the contrast on the photos (big job). We're running late, but that's life.

Re: Kaufman and Company Publishing Schedule for 2017

We are planning on taking the photographs for Mr. Jennings Takes It Easy before the end of the year. The text itself is essentially finished.

They've already blown the fact that there are two sets of twins. I would have used this act for the finale, and used other illusions where the twins were used secretly for the earlier competitions.

Sankey's idea was an interesting one: he uses a rubber band around the center of the card, which has been folded in quarters lengthwise. This lets him use a Paddle Move.

I enjoyed it very much. My critique would be that he did too many things using the same principle, and it was too perfect. In other words, the repetition of the effect led even laymen to the method.

But there's no question that it was beautiful work.

Chris, The Learned Pig IS defunct.

You are simply storing his old material.

It is not an ongoing concern, hence it is defunct.
