OM Billet Box Revisited
by Jim Gerrish
Based on Divination Discs as
described by Ali Bongo in his 1980 Book of Magic,
Jim shows you his method of making his own discs using
pictures rather than obscure symbols, and designing sets
of discs for every season and theme that you might want
to celebrate. The picture above shows two of the discs
from his Christmas and President's Day set. A Halloween
set is also included. The USA Presidents collection for
Presidents' Day is described as an excercise for the
student. After that, you are on your own to make discs of
wild animals, story book characters, or whatever your
Effect: A spectator has a free choice of
any picture shown on the discs or in a set of picture
cards matched to the discs. The magician instantly knows
which picture was chosen.
Other variations on the basic effect and
using the same principles are easy to print out for all
occasions, not just Christmas, once you see how it is
done. Templates are provided for printing out Jim's
designs on your computer printer, then you can rubber
cement them to cardboard for permanent use.
