What is your favorite close-up effect you read about FIRST in Genii?

And now "What is your favorite stage/platform effect you FIRST found in Genii?"

To Chris I say yes, I read them and have found several. I was simply asking for some sharing in this community forum since I know there is probably at least one good one I missed in my 4'+ stack of Geniis spanning decades. Perhaps someone found some usefulness or appeal I didn't see at first glance. I still read the old ones. Although my main interest is in bar magic I sometimes do family/kid parlor-type shows. When I made the post I didn't have the references nearby but I finally did post under my close-up/mentalism entries.

I have noticed over the years I have found many great effects that were excerpts from books I did not/could not buy or from creators/historians that dug up some good ones that were unavailable through other means.

Regarding the stage/parlor post I found myself simply recalling the many good effects (originally described as close-up or in a non-specific performing situation) that I performed in a parlor show.

Since John adds nothing I shall ask nothing.

I'm a nice guy. I'll still welcome each of you to contribute to this thread - that is of course, if you have something to contribute.
