Magic download (video) by Guy Hollingworth ($30.00)
Perhaps Guy’s most celebrated effect, The Reformation is performed and taught in intricate detail, followed by a discussion on alternate handlings. A signed playing card is torn into quarters, only to be reassembled piece by piece. A miracle. A classic.

Customer reviews for The Reformation
Definitely not an easy trick, but it should be in every card magician's repertoire. The reason is it can be performed using practically any style (e.g. talking or silently), and it's very simple for your spectators to follow along.
The most difficult part is having your hands appear natural and relaxed, as it is a little sleight-of-hand heavy. Moreover, you may need to rewind the tutorial many times, as there are A LOT of details to memorize. However, it is definitely worth the practice (be sure to use a mirror!) and also a great one to perform virtually. Done properly, it is an extremely powerful effect. Get ready to rip cards!
A great video, starts with some hstory of how he got into this partucular trick, also on this tutorial he covers this in great detail.
Yeah i got this and the description its totally accurate. There are some good sleights tho and a trick..
Probably have to get the other 2 volumes for alternate handlings...
