This is a beautiful version of Eric Lewis wonderful effect Locked Book Release from his book A Choice of Miracles, built by his son Martin Lewis at Magikraft Studios in 1993. This version really looks and feels amazing and unlike the P&L version it uses real books instead of blocks of wood styled to look like books. The books can be freely displayed and the pages riffled to show they are real. This effect works using an old block release method and although I’d be the first to admit it takes a little finesse to make it smooth, when you put the time in you’ll have a beautiful effect that looks really stunning in your collection.
