Callum Lynch's (Michael Fassbender) wristblade concealing bible from Justin Kurzel’s 2016 video game adaptation Assassin’s Creed.
Callum Lynch is submitted to an experiment involving the Animus - a machine that has been developed to relive genetic memories - and discovers he is a descendant of the mysterious Assassins. Experiencing the adventures of his ancestor Aguilar de Nerha, he helps the Assassins take on the tyrannical Templars and search for the ‘Apple of Eden’.
Callum carried a bible like this in a deleted scene relating to the end of the film where he smuggled a wristblade into the Templar ceremony, hiding it in the book's spine to assassinate Rikkin (Jeremy Irons).
The bible features a hard cover and standard pages, which have been stuck together for production. The book used is in fact a dissertation on the works of Shakespeare and not a religious text. The section of the spine bearing the title has been precisely cut out so as to be removed by a red ribbon tag – it closely resembles the shape of the Assassins’ wristblades, showing how it was used to conceal a weapon.
The cover is black with gold-coloured print – ‘Nihil Verum, Omnia Permissa’ and ‘D.F. Wallace’ features within a border cornered by four crosses. This title repeats on the removable spine section with more ornate detail.
Heavily distressed for production, the book has been given a well-aged appearance with worn areas, dust, marking and scratches. Despite these factors, it remains in good overall condition.
Materials: Card, Paper, Man-Made Woven Fibres.
