ONCE UPON A TIME there was a Book Test that ticked every box. That time is now.
Facsimile (from Latin fac simile, "to make alike") is a copy or reproduction of an old book, manuscript, map, art print, or other item of historical value that is as true to the original source as possible.
By Dictionary Definition, Michael Daniels has created a book test so genuine, it's as close to 'real' as you'll ever get.
The world famous book; Time Machine has been so meticulously and deviously reproduced your audience will truly believe it is an original copy.
Facsimile is quite simply the book test with a real book. You have the opportunity to perform MULTIPLE word revelations on ANY Page of the book. This is as close to 'fair' and 'random' as it gets.
The basic three-word effect is as follows:
Flick through the book and get them to say STOP anywhere they like and instruct them to remember a word on the page. Without any fishing or memory work, you will know the word they have in their mind and reveal it however you wish.
Just in case your audience suspect you did something funny as you were holding the book, hand it to them and let them choose ANY page they like. Instruct them to remember a word on the page. Once again, you know the exact word they are thinking of.
And, if that's not all, you can even divine a THIRD word on the same or different page. You'll know instantly the word they are thinking of.
During phase two or three, you can even predict their chosen word using an envelope that has been in play before they have even opened the book.
