I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I can find this fold in print. I saw it done years ago and it is amazing. Basically three or more large coins are placed inside of a silk or hankercheif which is lying flat on a table. The hank is folded at the corners and then raised to shoulder level and snaped taught. The coins seem to have vanished. The silk can even be whisked into the air and the magi can even secret the coins in the hands while it flutters to the floor.

Anyone know?

Thanks

Is this the same effect that Jim Cellini demonstrates on the dvd put out by international magic?

Yes. I saw it on the DVD a while back but wondered where it's in print if at all.

It is in "The Art of Eddie Joseph" by Hugh Miller, published by Harry Stanley in 1968 and later by Supreme Magic Co. in 1978. The book can be found at used magic book sellers. In fact there is one for sale at Quality Magic Books right now (who knows for how long it will be available?).

Here is a link:

Abbott's Magic Co. has sold this item for years as instructions only. They sell several Eddie Joseph items.

Just contact Craig Border the owner of Abbott's he will be happy to send it to you for a few dollars.

I have the book but do not remember it being in there. Retired employee of Abbott's Gordon Miller has promised for years to publish all of the material of Eddie Joseph but has not done so. It is truly to bad as his magic with things around the house is really great.
