Todd,
As you know, "ordering directly from the manufacturer generally gets you better customer service and exchange policies" was not the case for me.

It's pretty simple, just time consuming.

Lie the covers down flat with the spine flat on the table as well. Continue doing this to every couple of pages or so, pressing down gently-yet-firmly on the middle of the pages near the spine.

Every 30 pages or so on both sides lift the middle registers of pages up by one or both hands, allowing the recently laid down pages and covers to hang down loosely, further loosening the spine (only do this for the 1st 2/3 of the book -you don't want the middle pages to come out!)

Continue laying down the pages like this all the way to the middle. Then do the same thing laying down pages from the front only. The do the same thing from the back of the book.

That brings back memories, as I remember being taught this method some 30-40 years ago in public school. Around the same time we were taught how to make book covers out of brown paper bags.

The Shakespeare Experiment Hidden Message Contest has ended! The winner is Jen Southern! Now, I must say, we had only TWO entries...see, you should have entered!

The hidden messages?

Look at the "Publisher's Note" at the bottom of page 6. The first letter of every word spell out the names of the playwright and plays, and a credit for the publisher: "William Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream. The Miracle Factory and Todd Karr created this book."

Can't believe it's back on sale at Hocus Pocus even cheaper than before. That being said, I've ordered from Todd directly a couple of times now and couldn't be happier with products or service. I'm actually glad he won't be releasing some of the bigger items to distributors anymore - it keeps things just the slightest bit more exclusive (even within the magic community) - meaning, you have to actually search it out rather than have it spring up on every magic site you visit.
Keep up the good stuff and looking forward to what is to come.

Yes, I saw it on Hocus Pocus for $149! By the time I got to them, they are sold out and and no longer carry it! I still have it in my wish list, although they don't carry it anymore, this is copied from there: The Shakespeare Experiment- Price: $299.95- Member Price: $149.95
Man, I missed a good one.

Ace,

You may have missed getting it at the cut-rate price, but copies may still be available from the original source, The Miracle Factory. It's probably the Cadillac of book tests. What's wrong with paying full price for it?

Nothing is wrong with paying full price for an item I will use in my pro show.
I do mainly kid shows for stage and all my corporate close up is walk around with no tables, or the riverboat magician, same situation. So this would only be used maybe once or twice to show the couple of friends that might come over. Then it will sit on my shelf. I just wanted it because I like Shakespeare. My trained show rabbit is named Shakespeare. The Miracle Factory actually send me a $50 off sale for this this week end, maybe I will get it.

The binding on mine separated from the cover as it was sitting on the shelf. Seriously. Definitely not the quality product and craftsmanship that was advertised, or that you'd expect from a book at 1/3 the price.
Now appearing nightly in my basement.

To me there is only one book test and no other and that is the Mother 2.0. One thing I can say if you don't own one buy one for me it's the best one out there.
