Well it depends on what you want to vanish. Personally I would start with coins. But that's just me, I'm a card and coin guy. If you want to do coins, I would bet Bobo's modern coin magic book, it teaches the slieghts and vanishes. It is the bible of coin magic.

I have been doing coin magic for 6 months along with cards. when I broke myself away from all the self working gimmicks from when I was younger. I love slieghts. You might look into getting jeff McBrides manipulation videos. I have seen the revolutionary vanish you are talking about. You might try to go to http://www.coinvanish.com as well, I believe they just released a new dvd. If you have a magic shop close by, I would go to them as well. that's where I get a lot of my help with my vanishes and slieghts or a magic club also.

If you want to vanish small objects like silks, then there is a widely-used gimmick which is normally abbreviated to a TT. It's the first thing many people buy. You could use it to vanish small coins, or bank notes.

Also as well as a T.T for vanishing , you could use my favourite a p*ll for cigs and also money.

The revolution is a beautiful vanish. I learned it over Christmas and it floors everyone everytime. There is just no possible reason for a coin to dissolve into thin air like that, but it does! When the situation is right, and I need a quick vanish or switch, the Revolution gets my vote. I was actually accused of having Satanic powers when I showed Revolution to an older lady in my hometown. Smile That's when you know you have a miracle on your hands.

The revolution is a pretty amazing trick, however, this is something that you could probably find in a book somewhere. I was hesitant to buy it. I did. I'm not dissapointed, but defintely look into buying a book, because there is so much more out there than just the revolution vanish

I don't like to do magic that takes place directly in front of my crotch.

You'll find also that coin magic gets a weak reaction compared to more visual magic. It's difficult for the audience to see a coin compared to other props. It's also difficult for many people to follow most coin tricks that use more than one coin. But that's another topic.

PS.. It's in the other hand. (that's what sucks about coin magic)

Not so sure I agree, Doc. If the routine is constructed well, the "other hand" ploy is going to fail as nothing will be in the hand at all. Leipzig's Coin On Knee (Dai Vernon Book of Magic) comes to mind, immediately, as does virtually anything by Slydini, even if there is a drawback of having to be seated at a table (not true for his "automatic sl***ing," of course). A lot of Rocco Silano's book on the use of one's outerwear also removes the concern of the off-hand grabbers.

There are a number of other methods, like Coin-Go, Bat, Raven and Nathan Kranzo's Universal p*** that work around the "other hand" concern as well. Not as open, I admit, but they "git 'er done" as Larry the Cable Guy says.

Just some options that may not have been considered by the originator of the thread. No flames or insults intended, your mileage may vary, batteries not included, close cover before striking, store in a cool, dry place and never give a sucker an even break.

;) Smile Smile

I have a cool, really really easy ending to stick on the revolution, for all the people that say "well, can you bring it back?" PM for details.
