The Almighty Dollar

Postby David Acer » January 7th, 2007, 9:21 am

Re: The Almighty Dollar (Nick DAngelo), January 2007 Magicana

I just got an e-mail from fellow canuck Paul Alberstat reminding me that, in addition to Jay Sankey, David Harkey published a pen-through-bill trick using a secret fold in Simply Harkey (1991). Japans Ken Kuroki also devised an intriguing method to accomplish the effect, which can be found in Five Times Five Japan (Kaufman, 1992).

Hi David--this is the best impromptu pencil through dollar I've ever seen, or read about.

I've not seen December or January yet, but Bob Neale has a version called the Pyramid of Immortality in Folding Money Fooling (it's also in one of his lecture notes, I forget which). Also, there's Harlan's Now-U-Z-it from an early Minotaur.

Take care, Ian

Apologies if these sources have been published already...

I saw David Harkey do his pen-through-bill from Simply Harkey (1991) at a lecture in sweden at the Magic Theatre owned by Stefan Schutzer.
It looked very good, it was a very fine effect.
