This utility prop is a design variant of Stewart James’s “Go Go Vanisher” a gimmicked handkerchief that can be used to make a small object appear, disappear or even transform into a different object.
This utility device is a design variant based on the “Go Go Vanisher” from Stewart James’s book The First Fifty Years (1989) – though it was first marketed by Harold Sterling already in 1947. As described therein, the vanisher was used as a table cover upon which an object was placed. This item would then vanish at the magician’s command.
This gimmick is a handkerchief that can be used to make a small object appear, disappear or even switch it for another.
The original design could easily be constructed by anyone possessing a bit of patience, however, it had some drawbacks – gravity could make a “vanished” object reveal itself by creating bulges in the handkerchief, where no bulges should be. The Arkane A-Go-Go solves this by building on, and refining, a design variant by Tom Stone.
These 42 × 52 cm handkerchiefs are made using quality cotton and are carefully hand stitched over several hours to make a durable product that will last.
