Back in the '70s I remember taking a book from the library (I don't remember if I returned it or not) that I remember being called THE ENCYLOPEDIA OF CARD MAGIC, but I've never been able to track down a copy since.
The book was white and quite thick, as I remember, and each effect was accompanied by black and white photographs, not drawings. I had a description for Cards Thru Newspaper, but I don't remember much more of the content.
Does anyone know the book I'm referring to? is it still available?
