A Lovecraft Retrospective

set of three book blocks

synopsis

This 400-page art book features loads of color and black & white artwork that has directly or indirectly illustrated the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. The work has been culled from the last eighty years, including works from the pulps such as Weird Tales, paperback covers from the 1960s and 1970s, fanzines, movies, sculptures, private commissions, etc.
       For most of the art, we have worked from either originals or first-generation transparencies, so most of the work is displayed with a brilliance that has never been seen. Plus, there are several pages of fold-out views, including Michael Whelan’s Lovecraft Diptych, which is shown in the book nearly four feet wide.
       Artists include H.R. Giger, Michael Whelan, Lee Brown Coye, Virgil Finlay, Gahan Wilson, John Coulthart, Ian Miller, and dozens of others in a massive, oversized 12 × 15.5 inch book. Also included are many previously unpublished works, & several major essays. Foreword by famed Lovecraft director Stuart Gordon; introduction by Harlan Ellison, afterword by Thomas Ligotti.
       The deluxe edition is signed by over 50 people, including Ellison, Ligotti, Gordon, Whelan, Giger, Bob Eggleton, John Picacio, and many more. The deluxe is housed in a large traycase that holds the book, a second book of extra prints, and a third book of the signed pages.
       Note: the loose copies, those without a slipcase, are sold out. The traycased copies, those which came in a traycase with a folder of extra prints, are also sold out. We do have three different three-dimension lenticular prints of three paintings from the book: Ian Miller’s Innsmouth; Jeff Remmer’s Old One, and Pooch’s Tunnel of Lovecraft. See prices below if you are interested in these unique items. Only one copy remains of the signed edition. Please inquire if you are interested.
