Rub-A-Dub-Dub + Bonus
Expert Card Technique: Close-Up Table Magic by Jean Hugard and Frederick Braue
Page 301 et seq.
Personal Comment: Face it. You can get a lot out of this little trick. It has build in conditioning, which makes the actual vanish almost selfworking and it is one of those tricks that rely on acting rather than skill. And how cool is that. About the bonus: Well I was never satisfied with the ending. While a disappearance is nice, the usual spectator ask himself where the card has gone. So I came up with the reappearance and then I somehow got crazy with the rest, as the position of the cards almost demanded to keep it going. Anybody could have come up with this.
