A Lovecraft Retrospective

Artists Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft


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 Also included are many previously unpublished works, & several major essays.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.
