Comments: Decent inexpensive introduction to the Egg Bag, with a nice routine by Don Lawton. It will probably leave you wanting more, however. Recommended.


5 The Basics
6 Variety of Bags: Construction, Parisian Handbag, Arnold DeBiere, Malinie, etc.
9 Vanishing Moves: Flattening, Twisting, Folding

12 Standard Routine by Don Lawton. Uses two eggs and a Devil's handkerchief. The bag is shown empty and an egg is magically produced. The egg is vanished in the bag, using the armpit gag. Arm is raised to show no egg, which is back in the bag. Fake explanation is provided: egg is vanished and is found in performer's sock. Spectator drops egg in Devil's Handkerchief, where it vanishes and reappears in the bag.
