Adam Savage’s Indiana Jones Grail Diary Prop Replica!

Adam shares one of his oldest movie prop replicas: a recreation of Henry Jones’s Grail Diary from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade! As an example of his early prop replicating adventures, Adam’s Grail Diary was a product of the printing technologies available to him at the time as well as scarce (and low resolution) reference material found from a variety of sources including DVD extras and behind-the-scenes art books. Adam walks us through how he made this replica and shows us the pages within!

One thought on “Adam Savage’s Indiana Jones Grail Diary Prop Replica!

  1. I can’t believe no-one has commented on your wonderful video, Adam! Your enthusiasm for the Grail Diary is inspiring and I’d recommend any ‘GDiarists’ with friends/relatives who ‘don’t get it’ to send those friends and rellies to this video. It even explains signatures as clear as any would-be bookbinder could wish! Thank you, Adam, for this and the video where you are shown genuine Keir Lusby spare GD pages at The Prop Store London. Both were a treat! (from Nigel B, N Ireland)
