It is always possible to **block-wise magic squares** of any order except for the orders of type **p** and **2p**, where** p** is a prime number. On the other hand, one can always write **bordered magic squares** of any order. In the previous works, the author combined the both, i.e., **bordered** and **block-wise** magic squares, calling **block-bordred** magic squares. See the following links:

- Inder J. Taneja, Block-Wise and Block-Bordered Magic and Bimagic Squares of Orders 10 to 47, https://inderjtaneja.com/2021/01/21/block-wise-and-block-bordered-magic-and-bimagic-squares-of-orders-10-to-47/

This work brings **block-wise bordered** and **block-wise block-bordered** magic square. The bordered and **block-bordered** magic squares are written as **sub-blocks** of equal or different sums. The magic squares studied are of orders 12, 16, 18, 20, 24, 28, 30, 32, 36, 40, 42 and 44. The work is with **even order multiples**, i.e, multiples of orders 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 22.

Below are examples of magic squares studied in the work. In all the cases blocks considered are of equal sums except, where we have blocks of order 3 and 5. For odd order multiples see the another link:
