No, not Book TESTS, but actual effects using the familiar leather-and-paper combo article. I've seen a couple of goodies - flaming ones and a giant one whose pages mysteriously turn: any more that anyone could recommend? Thanks!

Greetings,

I have been working on a bible that tears its own pages out and spits them in a "fountain"...

Unfortunately, success has been elusive.

While this may not exactly be what you're after, for a series of library-reading shows a while back, I made up several hollowed-out books that held the tricks inside them (e.g., "Practical Knots" was the cover and inside was a rope, for a rope routine).
Come to think of it, I don't know why I ever stopped doing it.
Maybe it's time to "revisit the past."
cheers,

Sam - I'M SCARED! Incredibly cool and disturbing idea! Peter, thanks so much: I recently had some fun at our club's Book Night, by leading rather pompously up to reading from an alleged tome, then producing various items from it as apparent 'interruptions' - the final one being a Flashback! Your suggestion takes the idea further and I really like it! Just don't know if I can be bothered hollowing out books: my own was one of those home-safes, designed to look like a book. Hmm, maybe time for a trip to the local hardware store...

if you check out visions and get Peters number of the beast,with it I use a hollowed out bible (as per the aracana of bizarre magick)
that belonged to aleister crowley then the bible turns to revelations(on its own no thread)
to display 13:18 with an old pic of aleister inserted.
anyway I like it

And the chapter is underlined in REAL blood.
Mine, as I cut my finger when I was hollowing it out Smile

Think of the extra large loads if you hollowed the book all the way through the cover on the back and then used it in conjunction with a black art table.
