I just finished making a TARDIS-styled notebook for my daughter, inspired by and styled after River Song’s journal from Doctor Who - this went pretty well and I started wondering about other books that we’ve seen in movies or on TV.
I’m thinking primarily of books that have interesting covers (I guess you can judge a book by it, after all) - for example, The Neverending Story, which has a prominent metallic ‘Auryn’ medallion on it, as well as decorative corner motifs, but I guess this thread should include any books that appear only as devices or props in screen media.
So what others can we come up with - off the top of my head, I’ve got:
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Phileas Fogg’s book of rules and procedures (from the Steve Coogan movie adaptation)
Any number of books appearing in the Harry Potter series, but probably most memorably, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Tom Riddle’s diary and The Monster Book of Monsters
Lovecraft’s Necronomicon appears (I think) in a number of movies
