Mike Kanert & Lou McLeod's Necronomicon

The Necronomicon was constructed by Lou McLeod for the 2010 Tokyo International Players production of Midsummer Night's Dream.

 

Lou built the book, designed the paper, and developed a fully-functional system of runic writing with which to fill it. I scribbled H.P. Lovecraft-inspired anatomy in the margins.

Sometimes one Book of the Dead just isn't enough to say it all.
