Does anyone know where I can find this effect? I would rather have it in print form but a video is ok also. I know Pat Page has his video seminar Videos. Is the paper tear he has on those the same as the "10 second Newspaper tear"? I saw this performed years ago and it looked great! I do the Anderson tear, but want something different. Any info is appreciated. I heard it is also in Pat Pages BIG BOOK OF MAGIC...But it is OOP so that is out of the question.

The 10 sec newspaper tear is also on one of his trick-a-tape audio cassettes. They come with photos to supplement the audio and are quite easy to follow. I have no idea where you can pick them up today though...I got mine at an auction a couple years ago.

Nope - it's on a tape called Pat Page's Original Magic Routines Close-up Magic (and _not_ on the Paperific video, which I found out the hard way...).

The OMR tape has four routines; the cups and balls, Benson Bowl routine with a tambourine (ask Pete Biro about that one), the paper tear and handling for the dye tube. The tape is Trik a Tape volume 3 and bizarrely my copy has a label on the tape which says Original Card Routines...

Davenports (check the thread on Magic London) used to sell the manuscript as a stand alone - I'd be amazed if they can't dig out a copy. I saw a copy a few years ago and remember that it seemed quite confusing (but it was a quick look, and I already knew the routine).

An aside on how nice Pat is; after realising that it was not on Paperific I saw him at a convention and mentioned that I was surprised it was not on the tape. He said that he had discussed that with Vic, apologised and then took me aside to teach me the routine personally.

Hope this helps,

Take care, Ian

Ian... yes that is my Tambourine handling that Patrick teaches. I showed it to him Donkey's Years ago when at Great Russell street.

And... if you can find Alan Shaxon's variation, he improved Page's 10-second just by adding a few more seconds to the prep with some glu-stik.

"Ten Second Newspaper Tear" is indeed in Page's Big Book of Magic. I found my copy in a Bibliofind search for only $15. Try that, and also try H&R Magic Books, a prominent and reliable used magic book dealer. If you are unfamiliar with Bibliofind and H&R Books, you can find them both in a Google search.

And if you get Joel Bauer's Torn & Restored Newspaper video he "improved" the Page/ Shaxon method by adding ...
