Perhaps Guy’s most celebrated effect, The Reformation is performed and taught in intricate detail, followed by a discussion on alternate handlings. A signed playing card is torn into quarters, only to be reassembled piece by piece. A miracle. A classic.
Approximate Runtime: 50 minutes.
Guy Hollingworth literally stunned the magic community with his appearance on the television show World’s Greatest Magic. His techniques and handlings were innovative and flawlessly performed, fooling all and sundry. MAGIC Magazine quickly put the debonair performer on the cover with the caption "Who is this Guy?", as he had taken us all by by surprise. Mr. Hollingworth, it turned out, was a student in university, magic coming into his life not by any intense interest, but as a convenient way to avoid rugby practice! He did some lectures, released some notes, even a limited edition video cassette of the fabled Reformation, his torn and restored card, as well as The London Collection and Routines videos. Everything was top notch and elegant. Then we heard that he had a book in the works. We waited with anticipation and were not disappointed. Drawing Room Deceptions came out, and it was truly wonderful. How he managed all of this, including illustrating the book himself, all while getting a number of degrees amongst other accomplishments, is beyond the ability of science to explain.
