I was asked to do a review on Tyler Livingston’s new DVD production, “A Most Remarkable Book” regarding new insights on the Book of Abraham, the papyrus, etc. I was eager to review the video, but upon opening the hermetically sealed case, there was no DVD in it.
So, until Tyler can get me the DVD, I thought I would review the DVD case.
It is a standard-sized case. The cover is a dark brown, with lettering in a golden yellow. Those are well chosen colors, because though it is not a stark contrast (as you would have with black background and neon yellow font), the letters still stand out.
Nicely added to the cover is the round image of the Joseph Smith Hypocephalus. The hypocephalus, used in Egypt from the Late Period (623BC) onward, was normally placed underneath the head of the deceased to help him on his path through the after life. The Joseph Smith hypocephalus is dated to the first or second century AD.
While the image seems to be in Sepia, it is possibly the original color of the papyri that gives it the ancient look it has. That and it is 2 millennia of age.
The case is made of a good quality black plastic. To remove the DVD (for those who get a DVD with their case), it shows instructions to push the center button to release the DVD.
I hope this has been a valuable review for all of my readers. I also hope that quality control is better handled for future shipments of this video, as I believe the information on the DVD itself will benefit people much more than my review of the case.
