There are many real and fictitious occurrences of concealing objects in a book. Items can be concealed in books in a number of ways. Small items such as a photograph or a note can be hidden in between the pages of the book. Thicker items can be hidden by removing the interior portion of some or all of the pages, creating a book safe or hollowed-out book. Book safes are easy for their owners to recognise, but they do not stand out to a thief or other intruder.
Another type of concealment is the hiding of messages in the text or on a book's pages by printing in code — a form of steganography. For example, letters could be underlined on sequential pages, with the letters spelling out a message or code. There are a number of actual and fictional examples of items or messages having been concealed in a book.
Illicit chemicals may be smuggled by soaking individual pages with them.
Books are used as a concealment device in part because they are readily available and inconspicuous in many settings.
