The Magic Coloring Book has become a favorite with children's magicians for good reason: it's quick, visual and completely deceptive. Ours is printed exclusively for Fantasma and is offered at a great price. First, the magician shows blank pages. Next, the pages show pictures of some of the things the magician likes most, "favorite things," cars, ice cream, popcorn. The pictures are in black and white. Somehow they don't seem real enough. A bit of magic and they are now the magician's favorite things in full color. Oh, and did we mention, we've also hidden card images in the book, so it can be used with card magic. Instructions for the book and for the card tricks are included.
— Joe Berardoni, owner of Pun's Toys in Brynn Mawr, Pa., told TDmonthly in a September 2011 survey that "the best-selling novelty item is the magic coloring book from Schylling, but only because I love to demo it. Very seldom does that not result in a sale. I can sell a couple of dozen in any particular month."

The magician begins the trick with a deck of cards that are blank on both sides. As the routine goes along, the magician begins "printing" the cards´ faces. But then the cards don't have backs. The cards are shuffled. Now they have backs but no faces. Suddenly, the cards have backs and faces. The magician cuts the cards once more and they all turn blank again.

Wile E. Coyote often tried to catch the Road Runner with an ACME portable hole. The deck uses the concept of this hole that could be placed anywhere. The spectator chooses a card and the magician draws a hole with a marker on the back of the deck. The magician then peels off the hole, shuffles the cards and throws the hole into the deck. The hole then appears on the card that was chosen. It was created by John Talbot.
