As anyone familiar with the Evil Dead franchise and/or the stories of H.P. Lovecraft can tell you: The Necronomicon is a book that must not be fucked with! Bound in human flesh, the ancient Sumerian text will open portals allowing otherworldly demons to wreak havoc through the practice of human possession. That sucker might also open a doorway sending you back to the Dark Ages!
While the actual Necronomicon (if there was such a thing) is an object to be loathed and avoided, replicas of the evil book are a hot commodity among collectors and horror fans. This one I just discovered on Etsy, though, will appeal to another subset as well: Stoners! Check out the Necronomicon Book Box from artist GeeklingCreations.
Here’s an overview:
Screen accurate replica of the book as seen in Ash vs Evil Dead.
The book cover was hand sculpted in clay based on screenshots from the show, then cast in latex and hand painted. The cover was adhered to a wooden box that has been sanded and finished. The book dimensions are 10″ by 7.5″ by 2″ with inner compartment dimensions of approximately 8.5″ by 6.25″ by 1.5″
If this looks like something you’d like to get your hands on, better hurry: There’s only 1 in stock!
The perfection of the Necronomicon Book Box is twofold: It’s a brilliant replica and also a hiding place people will think twice about before exploring! Of course, there’s no law saying you have to store drugs in it. You could use it for other illegal stuff I suppose.
