Well this is going to take quite some practice to get it right,placing the card into the book and making sure everything looks right.

Performed it last night for the first time on my friend who is my best critic and it went down really well ,the torn page in my wallet on the mantle peice done it, I used the large evelope routine which I prefer,now I am working on the signed page even though the unsigned one works a treat,he was truly baffled,i love this.

Can some of you who are knowledgeable please help me trace the history of this effect?

I am familiar with the business card gimmick I believe was used in a phone book routine etc.

I was clued in by Max Maven that the history of Booked goes back to at least the Al Baker DICTIONARY TEST from 1924.

I believe part of the history can be traced back to a handling by Punks.

Lou Tannen (the real Lou Tannen) sold this for $3 as the Al Baker Dictionary Test and was a favorite Demo by Lou , I saw him do it many times during my childhood in the 60's..it was available from him long before this (don't know how many of you remember the 60's...I'm old..) at his shop on W.42nd St NYC in the Wurlitzer building........It was an awesome time...ALL the Superstars of Magic hung out there when they were in NYC....It was a very exciting time....I have many great memories..........Steve brought it into Modern Times.......I'm a big fan of Steves..He's a very hip actor & great magical thinker.........

The Al Baker dictionary test goes back to the mid to late 1920s. If you really want to know the history, that’s how far back it goes. Tannens wasn’t even close to the birth of this.

The original Al Baker dictionary test used a postcard - which is quite a different animal.

This was vastly updated & improve by Steve Valentine, and frankly Steve Valentine’s concepts were and are the state of the art as they went beyond a dictionary.
