Off to School

One of the attractions of Vault living is the emphasis on a quality education.  The Trepanist brings us this collection of skill books from the "Fallout" series, along with a standard issue Vault-Tec bookbag.

These props look deceptively simple, but they're actually custom printed and bound books.  The majority of prop books are created using new artwork glued to an existing cover.  That's an insanely difficult process to pull off convincingly.  The thing that really stands out about these particular examples is the full color roll along the edges of the cover.  It seems like a minor detail, but it's almost impossible to do convincingly when re-covering a book by hand.
