Hi folks,
I seldom post anything here, but more frequently read what you write. I need help with finding sources where I can read about silk blendos. Those that I have found in Rice's encyclopedia are based on double silks - or maybe I was too tired when I scanned through the pages? I have heard that there are ways to turn separate silks into one giant silk using unprepared silks. Does anyone of you know about such methods and where I can read about them?

You were skimming too fast and missed pages 1189 and on, beginning with Vernon Cook's Modern Blendo, up to Greer's Blendo on page 1205. Lots to choose from between those pages. Following those pages are blendos involving apparatus, but I am assuming you want pretty much barehanded non-apparatus versions.

Yes, look closer as Spellbinder said, look for John Booth for example in Rice's book.

Also, there is in the Opener section of Rice Vol 3, is a method that I modified for a IBM Ring meeting.

Slow down, do not read so fast. There is a wealth of knowledge in those books.
Be remembered for performing what looks like MAGIC, not skill.

Also in volume 4 is Neil Foster's unprepared blendo.

Thanks for your valuable help! I promise to slow down when I read in the future Smile

As for volume 4 - can anyone give me an overview of the content in that volume? I only have vols 1-3 so far.

You'll find an index to Volume 4, which is by Mark Trimble, on my web site, along with the indices to quite a few other well known books of magic (Tarbell, Greater Magic, Adair's Encyclopedia of Dove Magic, etc).

Thanks, Spellbinder!

I have found what I was looking for in volume 3.

I have been looking around among the magic dealers on the net, but can only find volume 4 as a part of a CD-ROM encompassing volumes 1-4. Does anyone know who sells the actual book? I've tried AbeBooks as well (used books), but with no result.

Volume 4 is only available on the CD. Volumes 1-3 are on the CD, but were scanned in and "read" by an optical character reading (OCR) program, which, as those who have used them know, need to then be carefully proofread and edited by a human editor to get out the mistakes made by the program (none of the programs are perfect, and this was done by a program made in the 1990's). As a result there are lots of mistakes and typos in Volumes 1-3, but it can still be a useful tool if you just realize that the text may be somewhat garbled.

You might check with Hank Lee and see if he still has any of volume 4 left. He was the original publisher of that volume and owns the rights to all the volumes.

I have a non-gimmicked Blendo for sale.
You count 4 - color 18" silks one after the other and they blend into a 36" silk- target design. This is a brand new with the explanation on how to fold the silks.
PM me if you are interested.
