The Maccabee

Mille Cuirs brings us another wonderful tome.  Since the original "Evil Dead" the concept of a grimoire with a face embedded into the cover has become a common trope.  Sadly, almost every single depiction of the idea looks ridiculous, but I like this take.  The sculpt captures the look of a face emerging from the depths and isn't too over the top.  A realistic take on a book bound in human flesh?  No, but it's very evocative.
