Chuck Smith writes: "Twenty-four illusions as mysterious to audiences today as when they were performed years ago. Most are so easy to construct and execute that a teenager could do them. I know because I, as a student in highschool, built and entertained with several of them. A couple of three fold screens and a large sheet gives you the material for several of the illusions. Recently in a magic periodical I saw an ad for an illusion that looked extremely familiar. It was selling for over $5000. It's method, I'm sure, had it's roots in Grant's Super-Fine Suspension on pages 27-28 of this book....I made it for under $20."

On a pure value scale, this booklet should sell for hundreds of dollars. Here are a few of the illusions you will learn to build and perform: Girl in Net, Mummy Cloth, Hindu Basket, Cane Cabinet, Sawing Thru, Screen Illusion, Chain Suspension, Sword Cabinet, Suitcase Suspension, Girl in Shower, Buzz Saw, Light Bulbs Thru Girl, Dagger Head Vanish, Electric Chair a.s.o. Each one could be the highlight of your next show.

probably 1934; 43 pages.

Amazing. The shower illusion is a modern cabinet easy to build. The big production is good. Park bench vanish was the best. Never would have thought of that. No special backgrounds or mirrors. Any outside bench could be used. Lady does NOT sneak away. There is no lady. Besides the gimmick you may also try a fake hand as it can be put in your jacket easily. Just seeing painted fingernails will help a lot. This would easily be a $20 book if sold by illusion designers. With less content. Well worth the price.
