One of my favourite moves.
I still vividly remember Mr. Kaufman's written instructions for this and can still see the illustration in my mind's eye from all those years ago.

I find the pages far too wide in that book.

Wait, how would you know? It was written after 1954. Or did you divine it using your incredibly powerful psycho abilities?

I was given the book as a present because it was known I was a great fan of the Brother Hamman book written by Paul Le Paul which although copyrighted in 1958 has material in it which was no doubt devised before 1954. Come to think of it the book may well have been written before 1954. I do know certain authors write their books at a snail's pace.

I have never read the newer book because as mentioned I found it very tiresome getting from one side of the page to the other. However, I did try and I may even try again even thought the stuff looks technically challenging and I have too many tricks already. However, I have kept the book because of the message inside from the person who gave it to me. I am far too modest to inform you that it says, "To Mark-One of the World's Greatest Magicians whom I hold in the highest regard. Christmas 1989"

I have no idea who wrote this. It was probably myself.

There are big spaces between each word and it is half written and half printed out in capitals. No doubt in graphology this means a a very calculating person.

Speaking of the chief Genii books, which that one is excellent. The weight of the recent So Sato book was very light, extremely light, I compared it to a similar size book, which appeared to weigh twice as much. The exact opposite of the weight of the paper in Tenyoism.
What kind of paper did you use, or is it a trade secret? I did not remove the DVD either. Thank you in advance.

And a great book it is! I still love The Doppelganger Card.
