It is a torn and restored card routine which is very practical and easy but REALLY HITS HARD!!!. EFFECT :The magician takes a deck of cards, lets the spectator pick a card and gives it to the magician. The magician then takes the card, rips it into 4 pieces and slowly, one by one, the cards morph back into place as they started out even before they were ripped. At the end of the routine, the dents are visually ironed out and, in the spectators hands, is their card- perfectly normal. It has been reviewed by professional magicians and, believe it or not, they say its as good as torn and restored routines can get. It is a booklet with 30+ pictures FULLY describing what has to be done and with different angles. This is definitely one of the BEST Torn and Restored routine/effect out there. This is a preowned copy that shows signs of use but overall is a good working copy.
