**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
