I'm not a card guy and I don't speak Dutch but even with these handicaps, still enjoyed seeing Eddy Taytelbaum in action at 86. Hope you will too (it's a short clip):

BTW, if you want to get an idea of just how collectible Eddy's micro-magic apparatus is too (pure genius!), just take a look at the auction prices that his work is commanding right now over at the Martinka online auction, with still some days left to run. I have one of his Chink-a-Chink sets and always marvel at the simplicity, creative artistry and practicality of the set (with its beautifully crafted box).

Eddy Taytebaum.......truly one-of-a-kind. I hope Kenna Thompson is still going to come out with this biography of Eddy.

Back when I was working on Ren Clark's biography, Eddy spent a couple of weeks with Ren, and I managed to spend part of my off time from Scarborough Faire at Ren's place, as well. So I got to know Eddy. He's an amazing guy. I had a number of Taytelbaum pieces at one time; however, there were certain obligations I had, such as rent, food, gas -- you know the drill -- so I sold my collection. I managed to hold on to a couple of paddles.
