Acey-Deucey by Brother John Hamman
The Secrets of Brother John Hamman by Richard Kaufman and Alan Greenberg
Page 31 et seq.
Personal Comment: Beautiful, simply beautiful. If one is willing to put in the practice needed for that. It's not easy. But it has a few fine points. As it is pointed out in the book, most transpositions without extra card suffer from the problem of having a weird moment right after the first effect. When you have to do a Mexican Turnover or have to replace the tabled card on the deck to turn it over. This avoids the problem. Personally I would put the second phase first and the first phase second. To me the first one seems stronger. But I gotta admit, I love it.
