Re: Encyclopedia of Card Flourishes - any comment?

The encyclopedia of Card Flourishes is news to me. Can anyone give me the relevant website address? It doesn't seem to come up when I search for key terms using Google. However, using a different search engine (Ixquick) I did find a Card Flourishes Forum (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://p...

Re: A question on terminology

Hi Pat, I'm not too sure about the "4 for 4 switch", but "Throwing the Switch" was the name of a manuscript by John Mendoza describing a switch of four cards for four others, plus a couple of applications. I'm sure I have seen similar switches published elsewhere with slight vari...

Re: rising card questions

Rising card effects are wonderful - I still remember my amazement as a young boy having the Devano deck demonstrated to me at Davenports when they were still opposite the British Museum. The demonstrator propped the deck up on a shelf behind the counter and went off to serve someone else while I wat...

Re: Bound editions of Pabular and Magicana

Richard, I meant to post a quick message thanking you for your reply to my original question. Obviously the illegal edition could put paid to many potential purchasers of your projected volumes, but I hope it can still be a worthwhile undertaking. I also know that you have plenty of other projects o...

Re: Bound editions of Pabular and Magicana

The popularity poll for Pabular is a good idea. Put me down as number two. These bound editions of old magazines are a great thing for those of us who were not around to get the originals, and hopefully it will only be a matter of time before all the old classics are available in this form.

Bound editions of Pabular and Magicana

I was delighted to see the recent adverts for the bound edition of Pabular Vols 1 and 2, but very disappointed to learn that they were apparently unauthorised. I was on the brink of placing an order, and am now contemplating the CD-ROM instead. I contacted Martin Breese, who is selling a CD-ROM of t...

Re: Help with CardWarp credit info

I don't have my full library to refer to at the moment, but there are a couple of references I can add to the list of Card Warp routines: Don England's 1981 book "Technical Knock Outs" has a version called Card Warped which uses a completely different method (actually reminiscent of an old...

Genii binding

I have just joined the Genii Forum (literally) and have a question to ask. I hope this is the right place to do it. I always look forward to receiving Genii and always find it a great read. There's just one thing: is there any chance of changing the type of binding used? Several of the issues have b...
