I saw a magician perform a routine where he had a normal sized deck of cards and right before your eyes the cards shrunk. They got smaller and smaller until they were just red and black tissue paper and fell to the stage. I am interested in finding this trick but have no idea what it is called or what I should be searching for. I was wondering if anyone knew the name of this effect. Is there a special book or DVD you would recommend?

John Kennedy has a commercial version of Diminishing Cards

Tommy Wonder has a great version, that you have to build. It's pretty easy to build - no problem - takes 2 hours time. Look in his marvellous books "Visions of Wonder" - the best books around - pure class A material.

There is one out there called Diminishing Returns by Mike Powers. It is a great effect and always stuns the audience. I have it and love it.

Yes, an excellent effect, as are all the others on his Website ...

U.F. Grant's Diminishing Cards is an easy way to accomplish this effect. No moving parts and very practical method.

Unavailable for years, occsionally a set appears on the big auction site.

Mike Powers' Diminishing returns - I can recommend that. Especially the short routine. The long routine is a bit too long for me, the chances for mistakes rise exponentially.
My mind reading routines: http://www.basjongenelen.nl/goocheltrucs/. Scroll a bit down to the English routines.
