 Professor Kunard, in his //Book of Card Tricks//, 1888, p. 133, made it clear that conjurers of the nineteenth century had taken to constructing spring-flap changing-cards,​ using bits of flat elastic. In August Roterberg'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​20169/​New+Era+Card+Tricks/​236|New Era Card Tricks]]//, 1897, p. 226, he talks of using sheet rubber to fabricate various self-activating card quite similar in construction to the acrobatic card feke that would become popular in the 1960s. Given that much of Roterberg'​s material was drawn from German sources, earlier publication of these ideas may have occurred in German. Professor Kunard, in his //Book of Card Tricks//, 1888, p. 133, made it clear that conjurers of the nineteenth century had taken to constructing spring-flap changing-cards,​ using bits of flat elastic.
