Sometime back around 1975 or thereabouts I had a balloon book (put out for magicians) that taught you had to make several balloon animals using MORE THAN ONE BALLOON. The balloons were bigger than 260's.


My guess is that some of the balloons were about 3-4 inches in diameter and some were about a foot to 2 feet in length.

Any ideas as to what book this could have been?

Thanks,

Gerry

Might have been Bob Folmer's book. It teaches animals made from 338 and 315 balloons. I have the book in my collection.

Jakeg:

I'm curious as to what year that book was published, the title, and who published it? That may help solve my own mystery.

Thanks,

Gerry

Gerry: I would be happy to give you that information when I put my hands on the book. I moved, (downsized), about 6 months ago and don't know what I did with half of my things. I have a steamer trunk full of stuff in a storage space that I rent, and I'm thinking that it might be in there.
For what it's worth, the book was probably published around 1970. It had a number of very basic designs, the largest one being a swan. If I am correct, there was also a routine to go with the swan, (and some of the other figures), which had them morph from one figure to the next.

Aren't there any balloon experts out there that can help me with this request?

Thanks,
