Karl Fulves' legendary magazine EPILOGUE was limited to 24 issues, from 1967 to 1975, during those years some of the finest close-up magic of the period was explained in its pages. From the magazines, with permission by Karl, I have selected ten packet trick routines.
DEVIL'S ELEVATOR (Bruce Cervon & Dai Vernon): One of the finest routine for this classic theme. One of my all-time favorites (and soon to be one of yours)!
TRANSPOSE & FOLLOW (Gerald Kosky): Two effects combined in a beautiful routine using the Aces and the Kings!
ALA ELMSLEY (Larry Jennings): The Larry's version of the famous "Four-card trick" by Alex Elmsley!
ROYAL BLUE (Karl Fulves): A packet of red-backed cards is shown front and back. One after the other the four Aces appear and at the end they are shown to have blue backs!
ALL FOR ONE (Bruce Cervon): Three cards are seen to be all 9C, then all 3D and finally all QS!
BACK FLIP (Sam Schwartz): This is an eye-popping routine and the repeat color change looks impossible. Four blue-backed Kings turn face up one at a time, the backs of the cards change from blue to red and then from red to green!
SWINDLE MATES (Herb Zarrow): A packet is shuffled by a spectator and matches the cards in another packet left always on the table!
UP-UP & AWAY (J.K. Hartman): Another great elevator kind of routine with a surprising climax!
THREE DIFFERENT WAYS (Paul Swinford): A card changes place with the Ace of the same suit!
DOWN AND UNDER (Roy Walton): A spectator finds two mates. The trick is automatic and it is done with the cards in the spectator's hands!
Running Time Approximately: 40min
