Things We Saw Today: The Book From Hocus Pocus

Things We Saw Today

Holly Conrad of Crabcat Industries (you might also know her from Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay) created a replica of Winifred Sanderson’s book from Hocus Pocus for a friend’s wedding. And I want it so bad. She sculpted, cast, and painted it while Hilary Grimes bound it into an actual book. I mean, boooooOOOOOOOk!
