A card routine in Art of Astonishment, Vol 1 (1996) by Paul Harris. Originally appeared in Paul Harris Reveals Some of his Most Intimate Secrets (1976).


Two face down red cards are used to sandwich a face down black card which is positioned at a right angle (crosswise) to the red ones. The cards are twisted and the black card visibly turns from face down to face up. This is repeated and on the third turn the back visibly changes to a different color.
