Journey to the dark, unknown corners of the universe with The Art of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos! Take to the streets with the Blackwood Detective Agency and the O’Bannion mob, as strange forces lead to an unlikely alliance. Journey to Innsmouth, whose inhabitants seem afflicted by a strange malady, and where the song of the ocean is the hymn of an ancient religion. Look upon the most ancient of beings: Yog-Sothoth, who is the Key and the Gate; Shub Niggurath, the Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young; He Who Must Not be Named and His avatar, the King in Yellow.
The Art of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos is a journey into the dark and haunting images inspired by the books and stories of the Cthulhu Mythos. H.P. Lovecraft’s stories have fueled the imaginations of hundreds of authors and countless readers, with their suggestions of ancient and terrible beings beside which humankind is insignificant, and the horrible truths that our minds are not meant to know...
Now, for the first time, the art inspired by these classic tales of horror is collected in one lavish volume, featuring paintings and drawings by some of today’s most talented artists, including Michael Komarck, Torstein Nordstrand, Paul Carrick, Anders Finer, and dozens of others.
Within its nearly 200 pages, some of today’s most talented artists give you a glimpse of the haunting and macabre images inspired by author H.P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos. From the sanity-destroying Great Old Ones to the mad cultists who worship them, from the gangsters of the Roaring ’20s to the terrors of the 21st century, this book brings to life the dark and compelling images of the Cthulhu Mythos.
That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die.
