-In this sub-plot, the quarters of a torn card travel one by one to assemble in one place, where they gradually restore. A routine of that type was performed by Piet Forton at the FISM convention in 1964 in Barcelona in his competition act. As described by Mr. Forton, the quarters were in a square layout and vanished one by one from the hands only to reappear restored underneath a booklet on the table.+In this sub-plot, the quarters of a torn card travel one by one to assemble in one place, where they gradually restore. A routine of that type was performed by Piet Forton at the FISM convention in 1964 in Barcelona in his competition act (see the brief mention in Franz Braun'​s convention report in //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​35723/​Magie/​10|Magie]]//,​ Vol. 44 No. 10, Oct. 1964, p. 290). As described by Mr. Forton, the quarters were in a square layout and vanished one by one from the hands only to reappear restored underneath a booklet on the table.
  
 In 1977, Peter Duffie performed a similar effect in the close-up show at the Blackpool convention. According to his recounting of the history of his routine, he told Derek Dingle about the plot in London, who published his method in 1982 as "​Restoration Assembly"​ in Richard Kaufman'​s //The Complete Works of Derek Dingle//, p. 187. In Dingle'​s routine, an assembly of the four torn corners in a square layout is performed with two cardboard covers. As the quarters gather in one corner, they restore piece by piece. Peter Duffie finally published his version with its history as "​Fusion Assembly"​ in //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​14322/​Subtle+Miracles/​125|Subtle Miracles]]//,​ 2004, p. 124. In 1977, Peter Duffie performed a similar effect in the close-up show at the Blackpool convention.

 The first in-the-hands restoration,​ without any traveling aspect of the pieces, was David Regal'​s "Piece By Piece" in Harry Lorayne'​s //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​18730/​Star+quality/​153|Star Quality - The Magic of David Regal]]//, 1987, p. 153. The first in-the-hands restoration,​ without any traveling aspect of the pieces, was David Regal'​s "Piece By Piece" in Harry Lorayne'​s //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​18730/​Star+quality/​153|Star Quality - The Magic of David Regal]]//, 1987, p. 153.
  
-The plot gained popularity when David Copperfield performed Chris Kenner'​s routine "Torn Asunder"​ on his television special "Fires of Passion"​ in 1993. While the routine was advertised in //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​37210/​Genii/​15|Genii]]//,​ Vol. 56 No. 4, Feb. 1993, no copy was sold. The first published method that aimed to recreated ​the look of "Torn Asunder"​ with pure sleight of hand was Guy Hollingworth'​s "​Reformation",​ which he first marketed as a video tape in 1996. Since then, many in-the-hands versions have been published.+The plot gained popularity when David Copperfield performed Chris Kenner'​s routine "Torn Asunder"​ on his television special "Fires of Passion"​ in 1993.
