Hi, everybody

Who can tell me who is the creator of this beautiful production ?

The four Aces are on top of the deck.
You held it faces up with your right hand a la Biddle Grip
You make a running cut in your left hand (a small packet).
Then, you turn your right hand palm up.
And you peel the first card (an Ace) in your left hand, out-jogging the card onto the cutting packet.
Then you turn your right hand palm down.
You make another running cut, turn right hand palm up, peel the card, etc...
Eventually, you have four out-jogging cards face up and you can reveal these are the Aces.

If it's possible, i would like too the reference : book or magazine, number, year.

Thanks in advance.

Philippe,

This is the procedure John Bannon uses to get the three required cards in play for "Strangers Gallery" without showing their faces. It is uncredited in the write-up in "Smoke and Mirrors." Presumably it is his? This was my first encounter with the procedure.
