A sheet of newspaper, a few folds, and two cuts. The result is a beautiful double-cut star: either the Star of David or a Pentagram. The basic premise is this. The performer shows a plain and obviously un-gimmicked sheet of newspaper. Following a series of quick folds and two straight cuts, a perfectly formed double-cut star is produced. What do I mean by “double-cut?” If you look at the cover art above, you see that the star image appears in relief; the lines or arms of the star have weight. Compare this with the traditional star cut from a newspaper; the star is simply a hole in the paper! But there’s a lot more here. The methods taught allow for the production of either a pentagram or a Star of David. The Star of David may be familiar to some of you, and yes, it is the creation of Gene Anderson and is included here with his permission. The pentagram is all new. The Star of David is included because, for the first time, both styles of stars may be produced as either a positive or photographic negative style. You will learn a fool-proof way of preparing for these cuts so that they always come out the same. You’ll also learn how to perform these cuts in an impromptu situation. Also included are presentation ideas and tips: my own, plus contributions from Ariel Frailich, Evil Dan Terelmes, and Patrick G. Redford. 5½x8½. 36 pages. Saddle stitched.
