Credit information for quartet transposition

Postby Fred52 » June 18th, 2021, 4:44 am

Hi guys,
i'm looking for credit information for a quartet transposition kind of effect, which was shown to me over 20 years ago by a german friend. He saw it on a trip to the USA, but can't quite remember who showed it to him...
The original version used a half pass instead of the switch i'm using here. Until now I found out that Alfonso performs something quite similar and Lee Asher has a related effect in print (Trey Sheik...). Any other ideas who invented this kind of effect and especially the use of the Loewy palm?

I think the originator is Jerry Sadowitz with "The More Things Change" in the book Alternative Card Magic - 1982

In his site Joncard, Jon Racherbaumer wrote an essay entitled Changing, Rearranging and Exchanging Exchange, posted 9/10/2000.

Hi Philippe,
thanks for your answer! I should have mentioned that I'm looking for credits for the first phase only, my bad...

You're correct, the second part is actually just my handling of John Guastaferro's Quick Pocket which in turn is inspired by Jerry Sadowitz "The More Things Change"...

I tried to look up the Racherbaumer essay, but it seems his site is under construction?! If not, I'm highly interested, maybe you could post a link?

Thanks again, Fred

Unfortunatly his site Joncard is closed. Give me your email and I send you Racherbaumer's Text.

For the first phase, I have to look for but I think it's a combo. It's no really difficult to reconstruct.

I think the first phase comes from V-easy Transpo, explained in Free From Filler by Euan Bingham (2003) but I haven't this book.

If someone can check and confirm, thank in advance.

Denis got it, we checked it: It uses a Veeser Concept, but is otherwise completely different (Elmsley Counts...)

I got the book and Euan's method is the same as one explained in Chesbro's Ultimate Color Separation book published in 1963.

Research continues!!!

If you want to avoid the palm and the add-on transfer, there is a simpler method but again I don't know who created it.
