Bob - The silk production and colour-change routine in Henry Hay's book is one that I really enjoyed (used to do it once in a while, makes me want to practice it again).

Yes, I meant to have the known card already reversed, second from bottom (if you want, then you can handle the deck more or less normally - shuffle it and spread, etc.). Double or triple cut the bottom card to top when it's time. Or start with it face-up second from top and double cut the top two cards to the bottom. Again, you could handle/shuffle/spread the deck normally, without too much worry.

Thanks, Carlyle! I'll give your card ideas a try, and I look forward to reading the silk routine in Hay.

Dear Glenn, Carlyle, and camron,


My copy of the Hay book arrived today. I haven't yet looked at the glimpse or silk production, but I've read a large part of the early chapters and am already impressed with his ideas and his writing. I don't know how I missed this book for so long. He's such a good writer that he'd probably be a pleasure to listen to if he was reading 20-year-old weather reports. I'm looking forward continuing. Thanks for the recommendation.


Bob

Best-written book in magic, hands down.

Not even close, but a great book nonetheless.
