Interesting review of Agrippa: a Book of the Dead, particularly in its claims about the book’s appearance and text, which seem to differ from other accounts.

“‘Agrippa’ comes in a rough-hewn black box adorned with a blinking green light and an LCD readout that flickers with an endless stream of decoded DNA. The top opens like a laptop computer, revealing a hologram of a circuit board. Inside is a battered volume, the pages of which are antique rag-paper, bound and singed by hand.”
