Hello! I have been a hobby guy for years, dabbling in a little bit of everything, but stuck mostly with mentalism. I recently received a beautiful antique book as a gift and would like to use it in a trick, but do not wish to add another book test to my repertoire. Any ideas for effects on the market or existing in literature somewhere to start my creative juices flowing? I really have no idea where to start.

Carisa Hendrix has an effect where a book is named and it appears in an empty bag. I don't know if it's for sale.

There must be some some pithy passages in the book. Perhaps a chose photo vanished and is found in the book
to reveal a key paragraph that suggest another magic effect to perform. Actually, your entire show could be guided by apparently random selections.

Depending on the book's size, it can be held by a spectator as mini-table for an Okito Box and many effects.
