Hi guys.

So, I am doing a non paying commission of the spellbook from the movie Hocus Pocus. I personally would like it to be as accurate as possible. My question is, does anyone have access to or know where to find good screenshots of the front, back and spine of the book? I am sculpting all the details from magic sculpt and possibly leather. Not sure yet. Just wanted good reference photos.

Thanks in advance!!

the back was what I really wanted to see. All I could find online was a few of the actual book, but a ton of fan made books. lol Thanks for your help!!

Here are some HQ screencaps showing the book as well, the back looks mostly the same as the steelbook cover with just some cropping of the skin and stitches from the top and bottom

There's a couple good clear pictures in there that really show the back and clasp. Thank you! Just what I was needing!

Here are a bunch of screencaps from the inner pages and reference pics for two of the engravings (although the ones in the movie are modified), most of them show only parts of the pages but maybe if you combine them you can get all of the text, since they seem to be the same couple of pages repeated over and over. Spellbook interior - Google Drive
Someone has also transcribed a bunch of the pages here: Magical Tomes and Mystical Objects
From what I've been able to see, these are the beginnings of all pages that are seen on screen:
Left pages:
Appearance of Satan
Then the aged Vainamoinen
Miracles of Witchcraft
Spells to resurrect the dead
In those that are possess'd
Witches’ Brew
Twist the bones and bend the back
Sang a dog with pointed muzzle
Incantation for Sickness

Right pages:
Manual of Witchcraft & Alchemy
Listen o blood
Excruciating Punishments
Magician’s pact
I beg thee
Formulas
Power of Witchcraft Eternal Life
Life Potion
I seek a husband

And a table showing some of the combinations of pages

Was able to get enough resin to pour the covers and spine. Just need to make some sales on my site to get more materials.
