Andrus was well known for his remarkable optical illusions, many created in his shop and home that he called the "Castle of Chaos".

shortly after Jerry Andrus' Death

In 1954 he invented his most famous illusion, the Linking Pins.

An interesting aspect of many of his magic presentations was that Jerry would not say anything that was not true, deceiving the audience by visual means alone.[1][2][3]
