my son is a budding book binder

This book is a Necronomicon.  Jeremy made this book as a prop for a movie he and his friends are going to make.  I think he did a fantastic job.  I gave him a few tips but he did all the work himself.  The cover is made with latex that he molded into a face on a cardboard base.  Genius!  The paper is regular copy paper but he aged it with coffee.

Hey Frances
Thanks! They don't have the movie done yet. Hopefully, they'll put some legs on the dreams and get it finished sooner than later!
