    Hey Pasquale... it finally arrived ?!! WOW congrats.....this is realy amazing.
    Many thanks for the comparison shoots. Didn't expected the colors of the original BoS to be that "redish". Hmmm.... screenshots never tells the truth, at least in respect of coloring....ehehe

    That's not actually a watch, its a camera as well as a laser measuring tool for covert prop measuring. Designed especially for "No Photos" action.

    Wonderful pics. We came REALLY close:)

    I started to age and weather mine. I also got a more red color by going over the entire book with brown shoepolish.

    That's awesome that you have the original Book of Secrets! How in the world did you get your hands on that beauty?! Also, is that a screen-used copy or one of the replicas Ross makes?

    This is one of the Book that Ross made during production. Everything you buy from his website was made during production and remained to him. When he'll finish these remained Book he'll never offer this again and I think he still have only one available.

    Thanks Sarednab!
    Ah, so you're the collector from Italy that Ross mentioned. :lol I have just emailed Ross, and he mentioned that he had three, two of them were already sold to collectors in Italy (must be you) and Spain, leaving only one left, as you said. I have asked him to reserve me the copy, and will be purchasing it from him soon. I'm glad I got to him before he stopped making them completely. :)
    Btw, thank you so much for posting the pictures of the original BoS on your website! Seeing those pics is what made me decide to purchase that masterpiece, and add it to my collection.

    Quick question though. Where do you store your props, such as the original BoS? I'm new to collecting, and have no idea where to put the original BoS once I get it. :confused
    I was thinking of framing it, maybe, but I doubt they make any frames out there that could store a book, unless I get it custom made (which can be rather expensive)...

    Yes yes, I am collector from Italy that Ross mentioned, ehehe! :)

    Everyone can choose different way to display his prop, all pending from space available in your home etc...

    BTW I'll made a custom display for it, just like my original Banquet Beetle from Indy 2:
