Bill says that he worked out this effect after reading Jeff Busby's "Royal Backs". He uses it as a primer to an All Backs routine similar to Alex Elmsley's. As we are not at liberty to describe this latter, we will just describe Bill's effect. Five cards are shown to have backs on both sides. The performer states that by giving the cards a "magic tap", it will be possible to print faces. This is not a success. The cards still have double backs.
The cards are turned over and fanned. They have suddenly become a Royal Flush in Hearts. The fan is closed up and immediately the cards revert to being double backs.
