While deciding whether to buy Jamie's new Scream (I did and can't wait) I poked around his site and picked up 2 other offerings. I'll post my reviews separately.
Love & War is an effect using photos. You tell the story of a couple separated when he goes off to war, and as a remembrance they tear a picture of themselves in half, each keeping a copy of their loved one. After the war he returns to the agreed upon spot only to find the Café destroyed in a bombing rain and no way to find his lost love. He then moves on with his life.
Fast forward 50 years and he returns to find the area rebuilt, yada yada yada and finds his love. And they live happily ever after. Awww. Great story, theme and emotions.
As you tell the story you act it out. You show the picture of the young couple, rip it in half, the spectator gets the guy, you keep the girl. At the end you show that the pictures have both aged and the prices match.
The handling on this is straightforward, there is no hint that anything will happen, you are just acting out the story. The handling is well-thought out, the routine removes any heat from the switch, and the ending is really a kicker to an emotional story.
This was released in 2014 and I don't know why I am just discovering it now. It is a too well kept secret.
You have to destroy 1.5 pictures each time you perform it (one picture can be used in 2 performances) and you have one print that can be reused repeatedly. I print my pictures at Sam's club for 8 cents each so this costs me an initial 8 cents then 12 cents per performance.
I just ordered enough for 100 performances. Best 12 bucks I'll spend today.

Purchased this last night as it sounded interesting and a bit different, my first purchase from Penguin and I missed the zip folder with the photos in, contacted customer service and they sorted me out in super fast time (thank you Gayle) anyway, did this today for my wife, had her pretty much close to tears (which made me smile) all I can say is highly recommended, if you want something different from "pick a card" then this is it.

I know that the word "sweet" may be a bit over used these days but that is what this effect is.My father in law just turned 87 and is my soundboard for a lot of my magic...he lives with us so he kind of a captive audience.We both have war experience and as is the norm we don't talk about it much.When I performed "Love and War" I could swear I detected a tear in his eye.And for the first time ever he asked me to show him again....Sweet!!!
