The trick in which a sheet of newspaper is torn to pieces and then made whole again, when performed well, has always had a great impact on the audience. That's no surprise, for how better could one convince his public of his magical powers than by VISIBLY restoring a sheet of paper which has been ripped to shreds? Psychologically, it is not easy to explain: With a rope-cutting trick, for example, which is a totally different type of restoration, it is easier to assume that the magician has secretly taken something away, hidden (palmed) or switched something, than it is to assume the same for something as big as a sheet of paper. And yet, subconsciously the viewer still thinks there is some kind of switch. There is only one way to rule out this possibility: The newspaper must be borrowed from someone and it must also be marked by someone. When a borrowed and marked piece of paper is torn up and restored, that's really a miracle. Unfortunately, there was never anything like that before!

And it was exactly this fact which stimulated Astor to find a solution for this particularly difficult problem. It couldn't be just ANY solution, but one which even a stressed professional magician could do in his normal routine without any difficulties or complications. That's how this magic trick came into being, which puts all the other newspaper-tearing tricks in the shade, and with good reason!


The magician asks the audience if anyone happens to have a current newspaper with him. As soon as a viewer responds, the magician goes to him and takes a sheet of the newspaper from him. He holds the sheet for all to see and then goes to a second person, who marks the newspaper with a pencil.

As soon as this is done the magician tears the paper in half, right before the eyes of the audience! (The marked newspaper is really torn in half, it has not been switched!) Holding up the two pieces of paper, the magician returns to the stage (podium, or whatever) and puts the two halves together to tear them through the middle again. He repeats this again and again, until there is nothing left but little pieces of paper.

(And here, please note that the original marked newspaper has actually been torn up!) When he is done he shows the audience the shreds of paper, and then, without touching anything else (!) or carrying out any other manipulation, the magician begins to unfold the torn pieces!

He walks back to the audience as he slowly continues to unfold the paper, and when he has reached the audience member who gave him the newspaper it is completely unfolded! It is completely restored, not a piece is missing, and the mark is still there! The marked (!) sheet of newspaper, which was torn up right before the eyes of the audience, is unharmed and whole once again! The magician returns the newspaper to the person in the audience, thanks him with a bow and goes back to the stage, walking slowly, accompanied by seemingly never-ending applause!
