"Kali, Hera, Kronos, Tonic, air like nectar,
thick as onyx.
Cassiel by your second star, hold mine victim
as in tar.
I... owe... you... pain!"
A4- - 720 pages. Hand dyed brown kangaroo leather with finely detailed
designs. The leather cover has been reverse carved with an intricate gold
scrollwork border and leaf corners. The centre panel features six carved
flourish designs and the bold title of the book - Darkest Magick.
This is a working prop replica of the spellbook
used by Willow in episode 5.19 (Tough Love) of Buffy the Vampire
Slayer where Willow unleashes her vengeful rage on the goddess Glory
for "feeding" on the mind of her lover, Tara.
Five ridges on spine outlined in gold. The main features
on the spine are the words 'Darkest Magick' carved in gold and
a four-pointed swirl surrounded by four small stars. Use of the
number four symbolises drawing magickal power from the four watchtowers.
Two replica books were made - both books close with a handmade
metal book clasp which composes of two riveted brass plates and a hinged wire
closure with a brass chenier roller.
The books are sewn in French style with three reinforcing
ribbons, Oxford hollow back and spinal insert. Special gold headbands.
