The ultimate in a torn and restored newspaper because here the torn pieces really vanish. Audience gets the restored sheet!
Karrell Fox is a real pro, veteran of years of shows of all kinds - nobody can match him in experience. When he develops a trick, its good.
Effect: Magician displays a double page from a full size daily newspaper. This is then folded and torn several times until the packet of torn newspaper is about four inches square. The magician then shakes the packet of torn pieces into a completely restored double page and the torn pieces have vanished. The restored sheet is tossed to the audience for inspection. Clean and clever!
Includes photos taken from life by Dick Jarrow. It's just like being there. Twelve photos in sequence, posed by Karrell, show you exactly how to do the trick.

I am only giving this 3 stars because there is NOTHING new here. This is just a variation on a U F Grant
idea that he put out in the 50s for fifty cents. It was called Fool-zum Newspaper Tear. The basic method and the pocket ditching is the same as in Final Edition. The only thing that Fox did was add the visible restoration idea, which is actually a Gene Anderson
idea described in his Newspaper Magic
. If you are familiar with Grant's Fool-zum Newspaper Tear, then you know the method. If not, this is worth buying because the secret is good even though Fox did not give either Grant or Anderson credit for using their ideas.
