“Nine Gates to the Kingdom of Shadows”

About the book:

The Nine Gates to the Kingdom of Shadows, written by Aristide Torchia, Venice 1666. A book purportedly based on the abhorred Delomelanicon(a tome said to have been written by the Devil himself!). Torchia, along with his blasphemous works, were put to the flame in 1667. But Torchia revealed that he had left one copy behind. The problem is that three copies of the “Nine Gates” are known to exist, one owned by Victor Fargas, one by the Kessler Foundation, and one recently acquired by Boris Balkan. Which one is the real one? Or are they all forgeries? Enter, Dean Corso, a sort of book-detective/mercenary, determined to solve the riddle, only he gets caught up in a supernatural web all his own and all the players are linked together by this nefarious book.

This is the premise of Roman Polanski’s film, “The Ninth Gate”. Based on the bestseller The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte.


This amazing book is totally handmade, realized with a particularly coating based on paper, resistant to water and it is like the cloth ( the same coating is used to make wallet, belts, tags and more ). This book is not made with leather.
