Le Necronomicon de Vhallennes

Le Necronomicon de Vhallennes

In 2005 I was called, in my capacity of Artisan's Book, to look after the restoration of a book found in an old house-in-Vhallennes Weppes (59 North) by a Notary following the death of the owner.

The book, in a terrible state, was identified as a French translation of Kitab al-Azif of Abul Hazred by historians, antiquarians and bibliologues also called on the restoration project and studies.

A restoration workshop was installed instead of Vhallennes to limit additional damage that could cause repeated displacement. After a long series of photographs of over 600 pages of the book, the book has been completely digitized in order to list all the missing parts, whether physical, graphic or typographical.
