Trying to track down a Michael Skinner routine

Discuss your favorite close-up tricks and methods.

Didnt know if maybe Richard K. or Gary Plants might know this; anyone can answer if they know.

On Legendary Repertoire of Michael Skinner 3, he performs a cards across/ progressive transposition routine using eight jokers: four red back and four blue back. If youre familiar with his performance of this, Im very interested in tracking down the book this might be located in.

Anyone happen to know where I might find that?

Didn't know if it would or not; thanks for letting me know, Richard. I think that I might be able to work out some type handling if I put my mind to it.

Ok, I goofed; they weren't jokers...just four red backed cards and four blue backed cards. He used spot cards, not that it really matters.

It's a nice effect. While it is fairly easy to reconstruct the handling, I don't know whose handling it is.
Thanks for encouraging me to get out the DVD!

Well, after some extensive searching, I think I've found something: Sam Schwartz's routine, "Transfer and Follow" in Epilogue. The "Transfer" part of the routine is extremely close, almost identical.

If anyone is interested, but doesn't have the Epilogue book, it's worth noting that this routine is on Aldo's DVD and download of the Epilogue packet tricks.

Actually it is by Gerald Kosky: pp. 84 - 85 Transpose and Follow - thanks Richard.
