Richard was very excited about the article, stating that “this was the real deal”, the colossal 27 page article in Aprils issue is written and illustrated by Jim Steinmeyer, and from the preview issue that Richard was kind enough to let me look through, it details a lot about the illusive effect, it’s history, and even includes a good number of photos, and drawings of the setup from the recent performance.

The Hooker rising cards is one of magics most closely guarded and discussed effects. The performance containing a number of cards rising from a deck, under a glass jar, even any card called for slowly rising from the deck. It’s a great effect that few have been privileged to see, and if you weren’t amongst the lucky few to have witnessed recently, this article is definitely for you.
