H.P Lovecraft Art Book

Jerad of Centipede Press has provided me with a fantastic selection of Lovecraft inspired artwork appearing in a book collecting a wide variety of Lovecraft related artworks. The book will include an introduction by Harlan Ellison and an afterword by one of my favorite authors, Thomas Ligotti.

" A unique art book available in a cloth slipcase edition and leather
deluxe edition.

Cloth edition in slipcase
2,000 copies

400 pages, four color, sewn with cloth covers, enclosed in a cloth
covered slipcase. Front cover image, black embossing, two ribbon
fold-outs, detail views.

The first 300 orders will receive a numbered copy with a special

$395 postpaid.

Leather edition in traycase
50 copies
400 pages, four color, sewn with full leather binding, enclosed in a
giant size traycase. Front cover image debossed on front, two ribbon
markers, fold-outs, detail views, signed by H.R. Giger, Harlan Ellison,

Michael Whelan, J.K. Potter, Mike Mignola, and many others.

$2,000 postpaid.

This huge tome features over forty artists including JK Potter, HR
Giger, Raymond Bayless, Ian Miller, Virgil Finlay, Lee Brown Coye, Rowena
Morrill, Bob Eggleton, Allen Koszowski, Mike Mignola, Howard V. Brown,
Michael Whelan, Tim White, John Coulthart, John Holmes, Harry O.
Morris, Murray Tinkelman, Gabriel, Don Punchatz, Helmut Wenske, John Stewart,
Thomas Ligotti and John Jude Palencar, and dozens of others.

The field has never seen an art book like this -- indeed, it is an art
anthology unlike anything ever published before. Many of these works
never before seen publication. Many are printed as special multi-page
fold-outs, and several have detail views. The book is filled with four
color artwork throughout, all of it printed full page on rich black
backgrounds. A special thumbnail gallery allows you to overview the
entire contents of this 400-page book at a glance, with notations on
artist, work title, publication information, size, and location, when

H.P. Lovecraft fans will simply have to have this book. Because of its
sheer size and scope, this book will never be reprinted and will sell
out very quickly. Twenty years down the road people will be paying huge
prices for this book because of its scope and the quality of
reproductions. This is the H.P. Lovecraft fan's dream come true. Don't
miss it! "
Visit the Millipede Press website to order the book.

Jerad also sent along an amazing collection of Lee Brown Coye works which I'll be doing a seperate post on the near future.
