Topological Card Tricks

The tricks in this chapter use cards that are torn or folded. This may seem a slender premise on which to base a chapter, but topological card tricks represent an offbeat approach that generates surprising and different card effects. Most topological card tricks requite gimmicks or manipulation that lie outside the scope of this book. The tricks in this brief chapter have been chosen because they are easy to perform and provide something of the flavor of this unique area of card magic.
