The Necronomicon is a fictional grimoire featured in HP Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos. The book is said to have originally been written by Abdul Anzared, the "Mad Arab", in approximately 738 AD and to contain accounts of the Old Ones, their history, and the means by which to summon them.
The Necronomicon locket features hand carved designs containing ancient symbols to bind, contain, and capture the dark secrets held within the book. The patterns along the long sides of the book are abstract depictions of Cthulhu and Yog-Sothoth. The corner caps of the book are engraved with the Elder Sign, which is said to hold the Old Ones and their servants at bay. The inside of the book is engraved with the infamous Necronomicon rhyming couplet in Ancient Arabic, the original language of the book. It reads:
That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die.

Summon the Old Ones
This is an amazing piece of work. The tiny details that are all over show just how much Badali knows, and cares for the mythos they are drawing from. My only regret with this is not noticing, and therefore buying it sooner. A mistake that I quickly corrected.
