Exlibrium (from the Latin ex libris, "from the books of" and equilibrium, "balance") is a magic stamp which helps the mysterious order of bookwizards to guard the border between the real world and the world of fiction. For many centuries members of the order have been successfully preventing creatures from the works of art and literature from escaping their custody. But sometimes the order fails to do so, and some of the book characters manage to invade the real world…
