Martin Breese says: I had an inspiration the other day and asked Stephen Tucker to think about taking the four best effects from his Spell Binder magazine and putting them on a DVD. Stephen chose the following:
Pilgrim - Four Aces, each covered by three court cards magically move from packet to packet finally ending up all together in the file pile.
Half and Half - A selected card appears in the performer's pocket. Well half a card anyway. The half card is placed on the deck and is bizarrely pushed through another card becoming completely whole. Everything can be examined.
Status Quo - A small square of paper, torn into four places, magically restores itself piece by piece. You are left ending completely clean.
Quadra Queen 3 - Three Queens are cut to in the deck. Trying to locate the fourth Queen you find an Ace. You decide to change the first three Queens into Aces, but when the cards are turned over they have become three Fives. The first Ace then also changes into a Five. The four Queens are then revealed from four different pockets.
Spell Binder magazine was published by Stephen Tucker over a period of 3 years from May 1981 to April 1984 and had a total of 716 pages and hundreds and hundreds of routines and tricks. The above tricks and routines are very clearly demonstrated on this DVD and they were all invented by Stephen. We will be releasing a whole series of Spell Binding DVDs and the next ones to be released will cover effects from other contributors and they will be the four or five effects that Stephen considers to have been the very best he published in his fabulous magazine.
