3 is a cryptic journal, part of a series also containing 2 (previously owned by Gideon Gleeful) and 1 (owned by Stan Pines), that contains information about the supernatural elements of Gravity Falls, mainly creatures like the gnomes. Its author is unknown. It was formerly in the possession of Dipper Pines, before his great uncle Stan, "borrowed" it. It appears in the show Gravity Falls.

History

Prior to Dipper's and Mabel's arrival in Gravity Falls, as the journal's unknown author had been studying the mysteries of the town and recording his/her data in the book, the author felt that he/she was being watched and hid the book in the forest, in order to prevent an individual, possibly the same one watching him/her and/or the author's enemy, referred to as "He," from obtaining the book.

ByzantinefireAdded by Byzantinefire
When Dipper goes into the woods to hang signs leading to the Mystery Shack, he comes across a metallic tree containing a strange machine. After playing around with the switches, he opens a hidden compartment in the ground and comes across the journal for the first time. Dipper flips through the pages for a brief while before Mabel greets him, and, after she inquires as to what he is reading, the two return to the Shack, where Dipper tells his sister about the journal. Later, Dipper consults the journal for clues about Mabel's new boyfriend, "Norman," whom he comes to suspect is a zombie. He tells Mabel about his suspicions, showing her the entry that convinced him in the process, though she does not believe him. Dipper checks the gnome page for possible weaknesses as he and Mabel battle the gnomes, and writes about his experiences on a blank page at the end of the episode.

Dipper reads about a cave behind a waterfall, into which he for himself and his friends to escape, as he, Mabel, and Soos flee from Old Man McGucket's Gobblewonker robot. In "Headhunters," Dipper flips through a few pages at the scene of Wax Stan's murder, and is seen reading it at the living room table after Mabel returns from her first date with 'Lil Gideon. Dipper shows the page on ghosts to Mabel in the gift shop in "The Inconveniencing," and later to Wendy Corduroy and her friends.

The twins read about the Northwest cover-up.
ByzantinefireAdded by Byzantinefire

In "Irrational Treasure, the twins read about the town law stating it is legal to marry woodpeckers. In that same episode, after Pacifica Northwest teases Mabel, the two read about and decide to investigate the possibility of Nathaniel Northwest, alleged town founder and great-great grandfather of Pacifica, being a fraud, so they can put the popular girl in her place. Dipper reads about height altering crystals in "Little Dipper," wishing to use them to make himself taller, and checks on its position in his vest pocket as 'Lil Gideon interrogates him about how he came upon the crystals. In "Boss Mabel," Dipper uses the journal to help him catch a Gremloblin. In "Bottomless Pit!", Mabel, who reads it for the first time in the series, reads the journal about the truth teeth.

It's hard to believe it's been six years since I began researching the strange and wondrous secrets of Gravity Falls, Oregon. In all my travels, never have I observed so many curious things! Gravity Falls is indeed a geographical oddity.

Dipper's Pages

Dipper's page.
ByzantinefireAdded by Byzantinefire

The Left page has a few words cut off and a drawing of a Mystery Shack bumper sticker. The cut off words can be viewed in the filler pages between Gnomes and The Undead pages when Dipper is showing Mabel "proof" that her new boyfriend is a zombie; these missing words are located on the page right before The Undead page:

[If you] go on enough road trips [chance..] s are, you've seen a [certai..] n bumper sticker: WHAT IS THE MYSTERY SHACK?
―Tourist Trapped


Right page:

Finally back safe and sound from one of the weirdest days at Gravity Falls. This journal told me there was no one in Gravity Falls I could trust, but when you battle a hundred gnomes side-by-side with someone, you realize that they've probably always got your back.
―Tourist Trapped

There are some codes. Down below on the page, there's a binary code, which reads:

"0100101000011010", it means 'J'.

In a later episode the box on the left corner included a new code:

While looking for ideas to defeat Gideon, Dipper calls this page "Butternut squash with a human face and emotions" instead of just "squash".

The code in the top right corner of its page reads Symbol cipher - DSymbol cipher - OSymbol cipher - N'Symbol cipher - TSymbol cipher - SpaceSymbol cipher - ESymbol cipher - ASymbol cipher - TSymbol cipher - SpaceSymbol cipher - HSymbol cipher - ISymbol cipher - M. Once decoded, it reads "DON'T EAT HIM."


Barf Fairy

While looking for ideas to defeat Gideon in 3, Dipper mentions a page describing a "barf fairy".

Bill Cipher

Left page:

These is a symbol cipher cryptogram on the same place of the page where Bill's name is written:
Symbol cipher - LSymbol cipher - ISymbol cipher - ASymbol cipher - R (LIAR)
Symbol cipher - MSymbol cipher - OSymbol cipher - NSymbol cipher - SSymbol cipher - TSymbol cipher - ESymbol cipher - R (MONSTER)
Symbol cipher - SSymbol cipher - NSymbol cipher - ASymbol cipher - PSymbol cipher - PYes (SNAPPY)
Symbol cipher - DSymbol cipher - RSymbol cipher - ESymbol cipher - SSymbol cipher - SSymbol cipher - ESymbol cipher - R (DRESSER)

Bill has proven himself to be one of the friendliest and most trustworthy individuals that I've ever encountered in my life. What a guy! I honestly [cut off] trust him more. Not evil [cut off] a way, Bill is a true gentleman.

This part is crossed out and below wrote "Can't Be..." in red ink

Right page:

Beware Bill. The most powerful and dangerous creature I've ever encountered. Whatever you do, never let him into your mind.
―Dreamscaperers


It is possible to follow the demon into a person's mind and prevent his chaos. DO NOT SUMMON AT ALL COSTS.

Other Items

Just inside the front cover, the book has an eyepiece (possibly a monocle) attached to the journal via a cord. Its purpose is unknown and it has been used as a bookmark by Dipper as seen in "Irrational Treasure". This bookmark separates book 3's appearence from book 1 and 2.

Secret of the Journals

ByzantinefireAdded by Byzantinefire

In order to properly complete the device, one must posses all three journals. Apparently, the author believed if constructed, the result could be catastrophic, so he made sure the journals were well hidden safe distance from each other, also placing a warning to whom ever finds the journal: "TRUST NO ONE!"

But Dipper allowed Stan to learn of his possession of the journal, who then took it to activate a device using the combined algorithm of all three books.

Other Items

Just inside the front cover, the book has an eyepeice (possibly a monocle) or small magnifying glass attached to it via a cord. Its purpose is unknown and it has been used as a bookmark by Dipper in "Irrational Treasure". This bookmark separates book 3's appearance from book 1 and 2.

Appearance

3 Gravity Falls
Book 3 has the main color of burgundy and has various rips and tears on the cover due to age, it has two gold lines on its spine and all four of its corners are gold. In the middle of the book there is a gold hand with six fingers and on the palm is the number 3.

Trivia

S1e1 Original Gnome Page
That's different...
ByzantinefireAdded by Byzantinefire
  • Until "Gideon Rises", only books 3 (in Dipper's possession) and 2 (in Gideon's possession) had been seen, implying but never outright confirming the existence of 1. In "Gideon Rises", 1 was revealed to be owned by Stan.
  • In an early promo that aired on Disney Channel, the gnome page had a creepier but more accurate drawing of a gnome.
  • The hand on the cover has alternated from six to five fingers.

ByzantinefireAdded by Byzantinefire
  • Random alchemist symbols of "fusion," "pulverize," "solution," "dryness," "extraction," "composition," "digestion," "coagulation," "reverberation," and "reduction" appear throughout the pages.
    • Together, "composition," "pulverize," "digestion," and "fusion" is the code Stan uses to enter his secret laboratory.
  • Dipper's handwritten page is the only revealed page to have lines on it.
  • On the page beside Dipper's page, you can see half a drawing of a bumper sticker Mabel was selling in "Boss Mabel".
  • Both 3 and 2 have pages on zombies as seen and heard in "Tourist Trapped" and "Little Dipper", respectively.
  • 3 shows signs of neglect that show of its storage in a tree. When it was first seen, it was layered with dust, and 2 has small tears on the cover, while 3 is in a worse state, as it has larger tears.
  • In the gnomes page of the book in "Gideon Rises", it is shown that the weakness line was filled by Dipper after "Tourist Trapped" in blue ink, being "leaf blowers"."
  • The maze page in "Little Dipper" and "Gideon Rises" has different symbols in it. This was done to hide the code until it was ready to be revealed.
