Jim Steinmeyer, John Gaughan, David Devant and Doug Henning


Here's a short commercial for Doug Henning's broadway show, Merlin. At the end is a vanishing lady illusion called the Mascot Moth. It was invented by David Devant and reconstructed nearly a hundred years later for Merlin by Jim Steinmeyer and John Gaughan. There is a wonderful story about it's method in Steinmeyer's book, Art and Artifice.

Mascot Moth looks even better than I imagined it would. Thanks for posting that.
