Hello!

I was recently at a magic Café in Buenos Aires
and saw a cool card revelation.

The magician, Juan Miraz, had three spectators
each select a card. He then folded a newspaper and
tore from the creases much like one do would create
a paper snowflake. He unfolded the paper pieces which
were created by the first tear. They were in the shape of
a heart - he dealt eight of these heart shaped pieces
to the floor - matching the eight of hearts selected
by the first spectator.

He proceeded to open the newspaper - the first "unfold"
revealed pip-shaped holes matching the second spectator's
card. He did a second "unfold" with the pips matching
the third specator's card.

The response from the audience was great, and there I really
like the magic and artistry of things in "threes."

Is anyone familair with this effect?

Thanks! Jeff

8H, 8S and 4D are the cards you can show with TONNY VAN DOMMELERN'S "FRONT PAGE CARDS" fromLewis Ganson UNCONVENTIONAL MAGIC(1956, 2nd ed. 1972) pp.50-52.

Thanks so much for your reply! I was really hoping someone recognized the effect. I found a used copy of the book online and look forward to working with it.
