Figured this would be a good place to ask. I'm looking for a vintage-looking book that revolves around fortune-telling. If there was one that is gimmicked for a book test or something creepy that would be great. Any suggestions?

Thomas Henry created one a couple years back that is made to look like one of those impulse-purchase booklets you find at supermarket checkouts.

There’s this: https://themagicwarehouse.com/cgi-bin/fi......d=FOURTH
Which is based around love spells.

There are plenty of methods for regular books out there, so you might hit up a witchy shop and use any of those methods.

Or you might create one of your own. A few folks would likely enjoy a slightly darker book test.

Witch's Almanac sounds like it meets your criteria

And Joshua Quinn's Ascension uses classic grocery store zodiac booklets, which, while not creepy, hits your other notes.

Definitely Witches Almanac. I have the version called The Dekranom and was going to list that for sale. If you are interested PM me.

Go find Bobby Hasbuns Oraculum - maybe reach out to him directly and see if he has any available - It fits what you are looking for

Most Half-price Books stores have a "antique"/"vintage" section with all the old-looking books. Buy one that doesn't have any cover/spine text & is roughly the same size as the fortune book.

Cut out all the pages along the edges of the spine.

With the fortune book, peel the "pages that connect the book to the cover" off of the insides of the front & back covers.

Glue those "Pages" into the vintage book's covers.

Now you've got an old, worn, antique-looking book, with the content you want. No one needs to know that it was originally 2 books.

Thank you for all the suggestions. I found an Oraculum. If it is as good as his other releases I'll be very happy!

Btw, don't mistake "old/antique" with "expensive"... I got a Louis L'amour, leather-bound, compilation book for $7.00. And an illustrated bible for $5.00. Just cause it's in a special section doesn't mean it's expensive.

In addition to turn of the century fortune telling books, I had my Fortune Teller Book of Days aged by a professional craftsman.
