Mine has hand crafted leather binding, with eyes on the cover to watch over itself, and keep alert for intruders.
The cover also contains a "code wheel" and dial as some of the contents are not in standard "english", or Roman letters!
The latch on the inner cover holds the curse for those who trespass unbidden.

I wear a matching eye pendant about my neck at times- one never knows when one will need to view the pages and not be near the book!
There is no mouth on the book, for it might blab a bit if left alone too long, you know how chatty soem familiars can get, and yes Tony, I agree with you Virgin hide is not that hard to find....(No one said in my line it had to be virgin Girls!)
;}

Love all!

Hmmm. Some understood what you were asking; others did not. Some of us feel a bit silly for missing the point. Still, it was an interesting thread so far.

A used book dealer here in Houston had one for a long time. It was in a French dialect and it was bound in human skin. Talk about creepy. It had code wheels and all sorts of other things. It was all handwritten.

I think the idea of using a blow book (old name for the CB principle) would be excellent. This is found in Scot, by the way. I don't know if I would overdo the self-opening book idea. Collector's Workshop made a book like that at one time, but it's not available any longer.

I have a "Book of Ancient Mysteries" that is a very large one, about 16 inches by 24 inches by 4 inches thick. it is made of leather, and is actually a large box. I may post pictures some where sometime.

The codices of the Mesoamericans were destroyed by the Spaniards...so they say.

Google codex (which is one of the Latin words for book) and Aztec. Note the spelling. Azteq will probably lead you up a blind alley.

Also, (on soapbox) spelling and pronunciation are critical when casting spells and constructing circles. Continuous lines are important in completed circles. There are hundreds of examples in lore of magicians who made tiny mistakes and became victims of their own greed.

So even if you are not "really" casting spells or "really" constructing circles, you must behave as if it is critical.

Look at what happened in Army of Darkness. The words were misspoken, and Gort caused the Earth to stand still for a day. Not a good thing.

Saftey tip people. Thank you Bill and Isso.

Hmmmm, not only for authenticity, but just to be on the safe side. Smile

Thought this article may be interesting for the 'bound in human skin' types:
Some of nation's best libraries have bo......man skin

Edit: Changed to website that doesn't require annoying registration, apologies in advance.

As far as Aztec grimoires, sadly, No. All Aztec books were burned and destroyed by the Church to keep profane knowledge from true believers. Only three Codex survive out of the many thousands that were kept in Aztec holy places. The Codex that survive apparently tell some Aztec myths.
