**An affordable design based on the original Baphomet book**

A4 - 312 pages. Black dry kangaroo leather, cut and resewn with kangaroo thonging. Main feature is a large bass relief pewter Baphomet goat's head in the centre of the front cover on an inverted pentagram. Ouroboros snake devouring its own tail circles clockwise around the pentagram with snake's head at top. Text carved into the snake reads: "NIGER LITTERAE SACRA DE SATANAS".
   Pewter corners featuring a spiky moon design are located in each corner of the front cover and a hand carved pewter scroll on the spine. Text carved into the pewter scroll reads: "IN NOMINE SATANAE".
The back of the book features heavy scarring. In the centre of the back cover is a satanic sigil, created by combining the alchemical symbols for mercury and sulphur. The trident, including the first horizontal bar, was used to symbolise mercury or lime. The symbol for sulphur - the vertical stoke, the two horizontal bars and the infinity loop - represented black sulphur, brimstone or black mercury (mercuric sulphide). Alchemically, sulphur has masculine qualities (hot and dry) - combined with mercury (feminine, cool and moist) the pair were considered the parents of all metals.
   The customer's name has been hand carved into the bottom of the back cover and finished in silver, along with :6:6:6: as a reference to the Number of the Beast (666) from the Bible's "Book of Revelation".
   Sewn in French style with spinal insert and two reinforcing ribbons. Hand carved inverted pentagram bookmark on black satin ribbon. Black elephant hide endpapers.
