Here is "real magic" with a "reel," that tiny little device that makes possible some of the smartest, most beautiful and mystifying effects in the entire category of the magician's art. Albenice reveals the secret of his famous "Serpent Silk" wherein a silk handkerchief twisted rope fashion, is tied with a knot at its center, held by one free end in full view. The lower end of the silk is seen to slowly rise like the head of a serpent. This "head" slowly moves on up and through the knot thus untying it before your very eyes!
Among the twenty-five ultra effects described are a great many more original novelties such as: Penetration Effects wherein a hanky held by both ends, in full view, seemingly passes right through a wand, a person's arm or other solid objects; Knot Effects; Color Changes with Silks; Visible Self-tying Silk; The Dancing Hanky; effects with cards, cigarettes, bills, etc. includes Spalding's Penetration Book. Beautifully printed, 83 pages with 66 illustrations. This is a book every magician should possess.
