What will he teach?
Flip is recognized worldwide for his creative contributions to magic, having published work stretching back over fifty years, and having received The Performing Fellowship Award from the Academy of Magical Arts for a lifetime of innovative magic.
In this Penguin Live lecture, Flip flexes his creative muscles as he shows you numerous ways to employ the humble envelope as a versatile and magical prop.
First, he folds an envelope into a tube and produces bottle of soda from it.
Then, he changes a small piece of paper (with the word “Large” on it) into a large piece of paper (with the word “Small” on it). This transformation has many applications, and best of all, the envelope is completely examinable.
Next, in a full routine, a large Queen of Hearts trapped in an envelope is torn in half and instantly restored. Then, it and its container are torn to bits and tossed into a second envelope which restores everything except the identifying corner, serving as a strange souvenir for the surprised spectator.
Flip also instantly restores a rope whose cut ends are visible right up to the last moment before they dip into the envelope and rejoin. The rope is then used to go fishing for a borrowed ring lost among a bunch of coins. Then, in an unusual envelope, a butterfly vanishes and changes color.\
And Flip’s own Warp Wrap envelope causes paper currency to increase in value and coins to instantly vanish.
Plus, you’ll also learn a few fascinating card sleights, like the Swivel Glide used to make a signed card appear in an envelope… twice.
There’s so much more you can do with an envelope, including bring it to life, as you’ll discover in this unusual lecture from one of the most creative minds in magic.
