Is it true that a magician never reveals his secrets? In this rare 1922 gem, master illusionist Harry Houdini may not explain how to make an elephant disappear or how to perform fantastic acts of escape, but he does divulge dozens of terrific sleight-of-hand tricks and puzzles anyone can do with paper. Divided into four parts?paper tricks, paper folding, paper tearing, and paper puzzles?Houdini's Paper Magic is an accessible and easy-to-follow guide to all sorts of tricks with paper. In addition to magic like ?The Traveling Paper Balls? and ?The Spirit Communication,? Houdini delves into traditional origami such as ?The Japanese Bird? and ?The Bullfrog.? He also shows how paper?torn carefully and properly?can produce elegant and intricate structures such as a ladder, a trellis, and a fir tree. Finally, he offers a number of paper puzzles that will challenge the mind. Houdini's Paper Magic is a wonderful glimpse back into the history of the art of magic and essential for anyone interested in learning tricks and techniques from one of magic?s greatest conjurers.
