I carry a wine glass at many of my walk around gigs. I feel like it adds to the elegance of the magic and gives it a real stage that is visible to a large crowd. For this reason I hoped that Souvenir would fit my performance style.

For those who aren’t aware in this effect a card is signed, a hole is ripped in the middle of the card and it is impossibly connected to the stem of the wine glass. The wine glass is completely normal, it can be borrowed and I imagine that the there are many other things that you could link the card onto. You could link it to basically anything that had a long thin piece for example a chain link fence, a handle on a bag or drawer, a necklace and so on.

The method is solid, it is something that has come into popularity in recent years, Adam Wilber has work with this principle as well as Ben Williams. This gimmick isn’t a wild new concept, but the effect and presentation are fairly original.

You will have to make your own gaffs, this is the hardest part. The instructions to do so are straightforward but it is still a difficult, even frustrating process. It will take a lot of practice if you plan on doing this a lot.

The second hardest part is the actual performance. There is a bit of dirty work you must do in the open, Henri performs it beautifully. Mind you it will take a little practice as well. The idea here is to leave the audience with a beautiful impossible object but there are times where the quality of your gimmick may leak some of the method.

I think that this would be best if magicians could buy a set of refill gaffs. The gaffs aren’t impossible to make yourself it just will take some time. This is a beautiful, professional looking, reputation making piece of magic. It will take a professional amount of preparation to get perfect as well.

A chosen card is signed by the spectator.

The centre of the card is torn out.

The very same card is then visibly linked onto the stem of a borrowed wine glass.

The linked card and the glass can then be fully examined.
