legendary magazine Epilogue
was limited to 24 issues, from 1967 to 1975, during those years some of the finest close-up magic of the period was explained in its pages. From the magazines, with permission by Karl, Aldo has selected ten packet trick routines.
- DEVIL'S ELEVATOR (Bruce Cervon & Dai Vernon): One of the finest routine for this classic theme. One of my all-time favorites (and soon to be one of yours).
- TRANSPOSE & FOLLOW (Gerald Kosky): Two effects combined in a beautiful routine using the Aces and the Kings.
- ALA ELMSLEY (Larry Jennings): The Larry's version of the famous "Four-card trick" by Alex Elmsley.
- ROYAL BLUE (Karl Fulves): A packet of red-backed cards is shown front and back. One after the other the four Aces appear and at the end they are shown to have blue backs.
- ALL FOR ONE (Bruce Cervon): Three cards are seen to be all 9C, then all 3D and finally all QS.
- BACK FLIP (Sam Schwartz): This is an eye-popping routine and the repeat color change looks impossible. Four blue-backed Kings turn face up one at a time, the backs of the cards change from blue to red and then from red to green.
- SWINDLE MATES (Herb Zarrow): A packet is shuffled by a spectator and matches the cards in another packet left always on the table.
- UP-UP & AWAY (J.K. Hartman): Another great elevator kind of routine with a surprising climax.
- THREE DIFFERENT WAYS (Paul Swinford): A card changes place with the Ace of the same suit.
- DOWN AND UNDER (Roy Walton): A spectator finds two mates. The trick is automatic and it is done with the cards in the spectator's hands.
