As new in black slipcase. A massive book no Lovecraft fan can be without! From the Centipede Press website: "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, J.K. Potter, 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 Also included are many previously unpublished works, & several major essays.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. PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A LARGE AND HEAVY VOLUME, WEIGHING 13 LBS. AND WILL REQUIRE EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES TO YOUR LOCATION. Bookseller Inventory # 000934
Millipede Press is pleased to announce A Lovecraft Retrospective: Artists Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. This huge tome is four hundred pages long and features the work of over forty artists, including J.K. Potter, H.R. Giger, Raymond Bayless, Ian Miller, Virgil Finlay, Lee Brown Coye, Rowena Morrill, Bob Eggleton, Allen Koszowski, Mike Mignola, Michael Whelan, John Coulthart, Harry O. Morris, John Jude Palencar, and dozens of others, as well as twenty thousand words of original essays.
This is an art book unlike anything ever published. Many works have never before seen publication, many are printed as special multi-page fold-outs, and several have detail views. A thumbnail gallery allows you an overview of the entire contents of the book and provides notations on each artist, work title, publication information, size, and location.
Because of its sheer size and scope, A Lovecraft Retrospective 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 range and the quality of reproductions. This is the H.P. Lovecraft fan?s dream come true.
About the Author: Harlan Ellison is one of the world's most respected writers of fiction. He has won more awards for his fiction than any living writer.
