Some of you may have missed the video review of “A Cut Above” by Luke Dancy back in May 2011 on an episode of the Magic Marketplace. Well, “A Cut Above” has been recommended once again, this time by Paul Lelekis of The Linking Ring (September 2012). He writes:
“Magic has been a passion of his (Msgr. Vincent Foy) since he first saw Harry Blackstone perform in 1925. Friends and magicians David Ben and Nick Sacco have waded through a massive amount of his personal notes to compile an impressive array of one-handed cuts and flourishes. Ron van Someren painstakingly photographed Msgr. Foy’s hands as he performed every single move of each and every cut and flourish. This, along with the descriptive text, made learning these sleights very easy to do.”
“A Cut Above” was first released by Magicana in April 2011. It is the exploration of one-handed cuts created and documented by Msgr. Vincent Foy, a pioneer of the modern movement of card flourishes. His contributions initially appeared in The Linking Ring, so we are pleased to see his name mentioned once again in the publication where he first prospered.
