During the recording sessions in Paris, JUMEAUX visited many of the real-life locations from “The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel”. Sure it was partly a quest for musical inspiration, but as huge fans of Michael Scott’s work, who wouldn’t want to visit these incredible historical sites? Here are some photos from the Paris Catacombs and from the actual, real-deal house of Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel. Click on any of the photos below to kick off the photo gallery.
Libby descends into the catacombs. Oh, and that sign says “Stop! Here lies the empire of death”. Yikes.
Should I stay or should I go?
OK, entering the catacombs it all gets very real, very quickly.
“Where is Death? Always in the future and the past. No sooner it arrives, already it is gone”.
…and not even 5 minutes in the catacombs, Libby turns into a ghost. Hate when that happens.
See?? A GHOST. But probably not an evil one. (hint: tennis shoes)
Couldn’t help but notice the interesting symbolism that our bag happened to have skulls and guitars on it.
The catacombs hold the remains of around 6 million (!) people, moved from overcrowded cemeteries over the centuries. Later they were rearranged into sculpted forms, to create a respectful mausoleum.
“The house of Nicholas Flamel and his wife Perenelle. To preserve the memory of their charitable foundation, in the year 1900 the city of Paris restored the ancient inscriptions dating from the year 1407″
Libby right outside the front door of the Flamel’s joint. They weren’t in. Or were they? (they weren’t).
JUMEAUX at the Flamel crib. Try to guess which one is posing like a rockstar. (hint: it’s not libby)
JUMEAUX just chillin at the Flamel House, waiting for Nick and Perry to show. (they didn’t).
Abraham’s Codex, the philosopher’s stone, the mysteries of alchemy.. This is ground zero right here.
Here’s a detail of the Flamel’s monogram, a symbol made from the combined letters “F” and “P”. Romance, ancient-style.
What we love about the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series is that these places _really_ exist. Mystery and history that you can actually touch.
