Crafting Spellbooks

"gingerpete50" has posted a very well done tutorial on creating Harry Potter style Spellbooks on Instructables. It doesn't take much imagination to see how his technique for converting vintage books into aged grimoires would be equally useful for crafting Mythos tomes.

There are two VERY important disclaimers to note at this point, the first is that this is really and adults only project as you'll need to use a very sharp scalpel to cut the new title into the cover of the book. The second point is to be careful what book you use! The only reason I could bear to deface these books is because they had been left in the damp and rain for months so they were ruined before I started.

In short be VERY careful that you're not going to destroy a first edition copy of "Peter Pan" or "The Count of Monte Cristo"
