A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

Could someone please point me towards a book containing the Larry Jennings effect "Transmutation"?

Thanks in advance.

"Transmutation" originally appeared in Genii!
An improved handling by Jennings appears in my book "Jennings '67."

I believe the version I use is by John Mendoza, not too sure how close it is to the original Jennings handling, but I believe I read in Ortiz's Strong Magic that John had changed the climax so the selections were revealed first then the colour change, thus making the climax stronger, maybe thats the only difference?
