Breakdown of the slightly pretentiously labeled 'Incantartum Dragonomicon.' Quoting my friend, "Warhammery stuff is fun to name!"
This is another prop from my Dragon/Cultist lair environment.
I've aimed for an amalgamation of Celtic, Arabic and even some Aztec patterns, which have come together quite nicely (I wanted clear influences, an unmistakable mix of cultures but not so much that the book was grounded in reality.)
The awesome design on the front and back of the book is by Josef Treweeks, so much thanks to him!
