The Art of Darkness

“Ninth Gate” Book Tutorial

August 18th, 2009 by Cobwebs

Book CoverThe Johnny Depp film The Ninth Gate was fairly forgettable, but its McGuffin was an “evil” book that would make an attractive decorative item.

Apocalyptic Productions has created a detailed tutorial for reproducing the book, including text, downloadable fonts, engravings, and instructions for aging and binding the pages.

Even if you don’t need an absolutely movie-accurate version of the prop, this is a great resource for making something like a personalized wedding guest book. You could also make a variety of “spellbooks” with intriguing titles, either as Halloween decorations or just to stack artfully in a bare corner.

Also check out their Biblioteca Apocalyptica page, where you can download text for the Necronomicon and De Vermis Mysteriis.
