My real Myst Book
A long time ago I found a really old book at this antique book store. I bought for about a dollar and then went to a hobby supplies store and bought a huge bunch of "antique looking" paper. Then I took this to an old fashioned book binder, who ripped out all the old pages and inserted my stained and old looking blank pages. Now I had my own blank Myst journal!
This is not a replica of something found in the games, but meant to be a journal, something The Stranger keeps with him to keep his notes in. So I started to play the games again and use old notes as well, and slowly started to fill it with notes and thoughts from the game.
I stopped doing it eventually. Partly because it's a huge project in itself, but also because I only get one chance to do it right, and I grew displeased with some illustrations in it, so my heart sank a bit.
Also, it's quite hard to "show off" to the general Myst fan population out there as well, which is why I started to make a digital version instead, which has come along a bit longer by now - although progress is pretty slow even there!
