Ade Duval's act as described in his book "A Rhapsody in Silk" had to be huge. There are very few magicians that would take as much time as he did to set up his act. His book is highly recommended to anyone interested in silk magic and how the pros did way back when.

Dynamike,

I just made two large 15' x 15' tie dyes and a 45" x 60' streamers for Marc Gilday's upcoming national tour.

Ade Duvual probably did the largest pure silk act. Get the book it is great.

I saw Jack Chanin do his silk act once. It was impressive but not as much as Duvual's because he worked in a oriental robe. Chanin's book is a very good source also. But you have to learn the act in small parts as he suggests.

Fantasio did a very large silk act on the first televised color show for Ed Sullivan. Landis Smith also did a large silk act that was a take off of the Duvaul act.

David Cressey produced a bunch of silk including a silk fountain made of Rice Silks! Marvin Roy orignally did a large silk act as Marvin the Silk Merchant. Mac Birch produced a large amount of silks also.

I also have Ken Griffin's routine that I plan to release with all the necessary tubes and such in the near future.

Hopfully the big and lavish silk productions are making a comeback.
