ROUTINES PERFORMED BY ALDO COLOMBINI. Spell-binder was published for three years (36 issues) by Stephen Tucker and included the best close-up magic of that time. Collaborators included: Stephen himself with over 100 routines, David Britland, Peter Duffie, Wayne Dobson, Max Maven, Joe Digman and many more.
PSEUDO (David Britland): You cut the deck three times finding an Ace each time. One more cut and a four appears. Counting down four cards you find the remaining Ace!
MAHATMA (Stephen Tucker): A copper coin changes into a silver coin. Many applications are possible!
REVOLVER (Simon Whitby): A spectacular way to produce Aces or selected cards!
COUNTERFEIT (Joe Digman): A fancy method to false cut the entire deck of cards!
HIGHLAND FLOP (Wayne Dobson): One card freely selected frrom a red-backed deck vanishes and reappears in the middle of a blue-backed deck!
BINGE (David Britland): One of the most 'clean' versions of the standard sandwich effect where a card magically appears between two other cards!
HALF AND HALF (Stephen Tucker): The most amazing visual restoration ever. One half of a card changes into a whole card which was, incidentally, the selection. What a great idea!
LADIES IN WAITING (Peter Duffie): Two cards are freely selected and they reappear between three Queens that at the same time appear face up in the middle of the deck!
CARDS OF THE GODS (David Britland): A freely selected card is revealed by a magical Ten reversed in the middle of the deck. Unique and versatile principle!
PRINTING HISTORY (Max Maven): A packet printing effect, using only four cards. Four double-blank cards are printed one by one revealing a four-of-a-kind!
