Marco's Comments:
There are 2 volumes, in a slipbox, one with the text and another containing pictures of the act, flip-books and blueprints of the illusions. At the moment of this registration, one plan (7/8 - "The bar table/The stage Carpet") that Paul Daniels is looking for. Details about the book are in Genii Nov. 2002. The book has some mould on the page ends, that I'm trying to remove. If unsuccesful, then it should be given professional treatment. The material is interesting, but there are no major instruction on the electronic bits for the effects. This is not a major problem, as most of the electronics are now obsolete. A great idea is the "One Arm Holdout", very practical and very clever, worth trying. The greater part of the book is the narration of the development of the act and the tricks, that is interesting but doesn't exactly give much for the explanation of the tricks.
