The Exlibris 1 effect at the end of this ebook is a wonderful magic square effect that incorporates a book and thus lends itself to be combined with a book test but can also be performed stand-alone.

Imagine the following. You are invited to a friend's or colleague's home. (Another great place to perform this would be in a library.) Ask them to pick any book from their bookshelf and open the book somewhere in the first half. The two visible page numbers are entered into a 4 x 4 grid. Ask them to open the book anywhere in the second half and you enter these page numbers also in the 4 x 4 grid. Keep in mind these are completely free choices, the book, and where the book is opened.

Then you quickly enter the remaining 12 numbers to complete the 4 x 4 grid. There is essentially no math involved. If you can count you can do this. You have just constructed a perfect magic square with their chosen page numbers. This is easier than the standard magic square effect while at the same time, it is a stronger effect. With this, we can literally close the book on magic square effects because I can't imagine anything easier or better.
