Dai Vernons Symphony of the Rings

By Lewis Ganson

So, what can I say about one of the truly classic routines of magic?

Many years ago, I saw Johnny Carson perform two magic routines on the Tonight Show. He did the Cards to Pocket, and he did a Linking Ring routine. I believe that the Symphony of the Rings was the routine he performed. I was in my teens at the time, but I still remember Carson doing the routine, because up until then I thought I knew how the Linking Rings worked. I was completely fooled by this beautiful piece of magic.

Vernon put the routine together in the 1940's to use with his Chinese Act. Lewis Ganson performed the painstaking task of writing up the routine and taking the numerous photographs which accompany the text. L&L Publishing has again made the routine available to the magic community.

If you have any interest in learning the rings, you have to start here. Period. And that's about all I can say.
