New Aces Through Newspaper by Mark Leveridge, R.A.R. Magic(c. 1979) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Effect: Everyone must surely have seen or at least be familiar with the classic effect in which Aces, placed one at a time beneath a sheet of newspaper, penetrate upwards through the paper to collect beneath a cover. I remember reading about the effect first in Bruce Elliot’s wonderful book Classic Secrets of Magic (Chapter 8 – Two Covers and Four Objects). Many will probably have been put off by the need to perform switches and steals in the routine and by the fact that it presents certain angle problems. All these difficulties have now been eliminated.
Mark Leveridge has devised a routine using a sheet of paper, the Aces and two leather drink coaster mats as covers, which is easy to perform, has no angle problems at all and which provides a totally new and unexpected ending. The secret lies in the special leather mats provided, created to perfection by the leather craftsman Roy Roth, and in the much improved routine. In short, New Aces Through Newspaper up-dates a classic trick so that it can be performed under modern, demanding conditions.
