In 1970, while still in my mid-teens, I purchased a Japanese book issued by the Tenkai Prize Committee called MASAO ATSUKAWA'S CREATIVE WORKS IN MAGIC. The book dealt with original effects by Atsukawa and a great deal of the material utilized the shape of objects to create some unusual magic - topological magic, if you will.

I became interested in one of Atsukawa's effects called 'Three Quarter Card'. The gaff is basically a card with one quarter missing, that allows a penetration effect to take place. The problem was that the cards could not be shown cleanly. In playing around with the Atsukawa effect, I hit upon the idea of replacing the missing quarter with just a slit running from one edge of the card to the centerpoint. This allowed me to perform all sorts of unique penetration effects, but in a much cleaner and more open fashion. Still playing with the single slit card, I eventually came up with the E-fold idea which led ultimately to the effect of a single card turning inside out - an effect which was finally written up in November of 1972 and published in January 1973 as INTO THE FOURTH DIMENSION...AND BEYOND. I think it fairly well known that this was the effect that led to Roy Walton's variant handling that was issued (and I might add, initially without permission, but belatedly given after the effect was on the market) as CARD WARP. This took the magic world by storm.
John, thank you for this info.

David Britland's superb "Tearing a Lady in Two" (Martin Breese, 1983) is perhaps a distant relative of Card Warp, using a similar idea to achieve a different effect. The manuscript mentions Card Warp and says that the torn and restored effect was devised as a solution to a problem posed by Stephen Tucker, and after experimentation with Karl Fulves' Topological Trap from "Methods with Cards Part 2". Ben Harris published his own versions of the effect, which are again related, in his manuscript "Royal Divide".

Here's another by Gerald Kirchner from Magic city

Ultimate Warp

Effect: Two Cards are shown, let's say the red Seven of hearts and the blue eight of hearts.

The Red seven is folded in half and the blue eight is folded lengthwise.

The seven is placed inside the eight and turned back inside-out. The eight is passed through the seven and magically changes into the seven!

Now the eight is the red card folded in half and the seven is the blue card folded lengthwise.

The eight is now placed inside the seven and turned inside-out. The seven is passed through the eight and flips inside-out.

Now you see the back and the front of the seven at the same time.

The card is left in this position and ripped in half. The half is turned over to reveal that the seven and eight have merged!

Paul Green teaches a beautiful handling in his lecture.

Bruce Cervon's card and bill versions in Ultra Cervon are spectacular.

Good luck with the project.

If you're interested in "related" effects, I just stumbled across one called "Tearable" in the April 1983 Apocalypse, by Paul Sorrentino and Mark Lefler, in which you show a Card-Warp-style tear in the long edge of a card and then cause it to move to the short edge and back. The effect is odd and sounds like it's designed for magicians who know Card Warp, but then again I haven't tried it out and maybe it would play well for laymen if properly presented.

I have the lecture notes and also the pamphlet entitled Sandslide, but I don't see anything related to Card Warp in them. I believe that George has passed on, but his son Alan is a performer and offers much of George's material via web site
( http://www.alansands.com/ ).

George Sands put out quite a few small booklets and lecture notes, but I don't recall anything with Card Warp (not to say it's not in there, or in a set I never saw).
George was a great guy: I think he has Alzheimer's, but didn't think he actually passed on.

George Sands is still with us but Richard is correct, Alzheimers has taken over. I have been in communication with his wife Arlene and she can't find anything card warp related in Georges books.
Let me take this opportunity to suggest that everyone go to http://alansands.com/store/georgesands.html
and purchase all seven volumes of Mr.Sands magic. There's some great stuff here by someone who gave his all to magic.

I'm in the process of "sorting" my library and came across:

GREENWARP

by Bob McAllister

Instructions by Richard Kaufman

There is no date on it.

The opening paragraph is interesting:

"It used to be a matter of simple courtesy that, if you came up with a variation of someone else's effect, you waited until the originator had published his ideas before you published yours. The concept of using a dollar biil and a card, instead of two cards, for Roy Walton's 'Card Warp' is solely Bob McAllister's. The other published versions rightfully credit Bob, but simultaneously butcher his idea by complicating it with too much magicians logic."

I watched the Hard Man of Magic martin Cox lecture at my local magic club some months ago and he showed us a vesrion of card warp that was very clever. I don't have a website for him but it was something like martian or marmite magic.

Jeff, if you haven't already ordered it get the L&L video on Card Warp.

You get to see three of the best presentations:
Burger
Cervon
Close

A must have video for fans of the trick, even if you never watch the explainations. I had to force myself to watch the explaination of Cervon's handling for the review for MUM. It was so nice to be fooled by his variation.

And if you don't already have a copy of Ultimate Workers you NEED to see Close do this thing...

Hi Jeff,
I have the Fulves book. It has a section devoted to "topological" card magic, and includes a routine called 4th Warp. I'll send you an email with more details.

Mr. Pierce,
I learned how to do Card Warp via a brief treatment (with business cards, I believe) that appeared in Supreme Magic's "Magicgram" around 1978. Sorry I cannot cite the exact issue, but hope this additional note may be of interest. Best, Dave Cox

I think it looks nice.

But, aside from using your hand as a cover are there other phases where you've actually added something new to the effect?

Didn't the buzzy bee use his hand as cover (perhaps in a different way though) in his "Into the 4th dimension"?
