The Vanni Bossi Lecture.

Vanni warming up the 4F crowd.

On the left Vanni demonstrates his variation of the Mercury Card Fold for
onlooker Allan Sherer. On the right Vanni performes a levitating light bulb effect.

Next Vanni performed a color changing card while the pack was sealed
in a plastic bag. On the right Vanni has Allan Sherer select a card while
Jean-Luc Dupont and Don Voltz observe.

On the left Vanni has Maria Schwieter select and sign a playing card.
A credit card was inserted into the pack to find the selection.
On the right Vanni divulges the method. Incidentally the
credit card was shown both front and back thus
proving it to be ordinary.

On the left Vanni is performing the coin in the bottle using a rather unique
method (Not a gaffed coin) for Harold Cataquet. On the right Vanni is seen
performing the signed card in the glass.

On the left Vanni is seen performing a card effect for Eric Leclerc.
Above and to the right Vanni performs a clever Bill penetration while asking a spectator
(Sorry I do not know your name) "To do as I do". Vanni's bill came out unscathed, however,
the spectators did not.
If you know the name of the spectator pictured above and to the right please e-mail me at

Here we see Vanni starting his Misers Dream routine. The hands are slowly
shown both front and back - and yes his hands are infact empty.

From empty hands and without going to the body for loads, Vanni would reach
into the air and produce one coin after another. Vanni later tipped the method
which I found to be quite ingenious.

Vanni Bossi was one of the true highlights of this years FFFF convention.

If you have not been to a FFFF convention before
well now is when the real fun begins.


They will be going on until the next days events start.
