Fear is all in a day's work

Miskatonic University Library

This is the first phase of a long-term project for a Lovecraft-themed haunt I'd like to do. The plan for the library is to replicate the eldritch tomes of the infamous library of occult knowledge at Miskatonic University. In addition to the books named in Lovecraft's stories and those of others working in the my mythos, I will also be including a few books real and imaginary (I'll leave it to you to sort out which is which) that were influences on Lovecraft's works.

The techniques used here are adapted from the excellent spellbook how-to by WitchOtastic.

The Books

Unaussprechlichen Kulten

This is obviously not the original iron-hasped version, of which very few remain, but a later edition in more traditional leather binding.

The King in Yellow

The controversial play was published late in the 19th century, and was clearly therefore not an incunabulum. What you see here is rather an earlier work on which the author apparently relied.

Unknown Manuscripts

Appearing to be the pages of some antiquated and unbound grimoire, these were acquired from the estate of a Mr. Ward, deceased. Several scripts are made use of, of which only the Latin can be partially deciphered. That enough chills the bones.
