John Dee completed the first English translation of the Necronomicon from the Latin in the early 1600s. His manuscript describes the magical Omen Antiquitatum – the Elder Sign. We have followed his instruction precisely, using acid to etch Dee’s Elder Sign onto a plate of genuine copper. The result is a striking recreation of a magical artifact used to keep the forces of the Mythos at bay.

The Collector’s Edition of the Omen Antiquitatum features an etched copper version of the symbol, carefully aged with verdigris. The copper plate is then affixed with antiqued nails to a hand-finished plaque of solid red oak (with convenient hanger on the back). The Collector’s Edition comes with a facsimile copy of five pages from the Dee Necronomicon which discusses the Omen Antiquitatum and its use. For more information about this Elder Sign, click here. Don’t miss your chance to own one of the most extraordinary artifacts of the Cthulhu Mythos.
