World's Greatest Magic - Gypsy Thread
DVD or download by Various (DVD $16.25 or download for $15.00)
The effect that is commonly referred to as Gypsy Thread was first introduced into the literature of magic in 1584 by Provost, and ever since, magicians - and presumably their audiences - have been fascinated and enchanted by the simple yet profound concept of a simple strand of thread being broken into small pieces and restored at the magician's fingertips.
