Anverdi had some nice ideas with thimbles--including one that I had read in Walter B. Gibson's _What's New in Magic_ where four thimbles start out one on each finger of the right hand and one by one they visibly jump from finger to finger until they're all stacked on one finger! It looked like real magic when Anverdi did it!

Anverdi's lecture (around 1963) was the first magic lecture I ever saw... and it set a very high bar for all the lectures that followed!

I saw (and heard!) Anverdi's lecture, in 1964 at the IBM Convention in NYC. He did some very clever stuff, but, when I approached him at his dealer booth to ask for clarification on a ring and rope "move", he REFUSED. He said, "You wont do it anyway."

When I saw Anverdi's lecture for the first time, I didn't have the cash with me to buy his lecture notes. I was a skinny little teenager at the time. He signed a set for me and said I could send it to him. I never got around to sending it, but I did pay him when I saw him again at a lecture in Richmond. I adapted some of his ideas to use for a reel-less serpent silk effect that I used as misdirection for the steal of a stock of cards, then using the silk for the "pull-through" proof that Cardini and others used.

A friend of mine had Anverdi's "Ring Glass" which was another stunning effect.

Thank you Bojan for that reference. I have long wanted to witness Viggo Jahn's Thimble act with Cane knobs. It is truly unique and very skillful routine. Not filled with gyrations and confusing movements. Just the right speed so the audience can see what is truly happening and the magic effect taking place.

Did anyone mention Shoot Ogawa? If so I second it.

I am thinking about putting some thimbles moves into my close up act. Anyone done this.

Yes, other people have done close-up thimble magic. So it is okay if you do as well.
