For three-quarters of a century, the horrors of Howard Phillips Lovecraft have wound their tentacles through American literary and popular culture. This highly anticipated edition of his most influential short fiction, strictly limited to 750 copies, stands as a new landmark in the long history of Lovecraftian illustration and publishing.
Housed in a sea-green and purple duotone solander box, the volume is pitch black down to its very page edges, intended to rival even the forbidden tomes of Lovecraft’s cursed libraries. The binding is embossed with a gold device and astral symbol, akin to the ancient hieroglyphs used to summon his ancient god monsters. Inside, each of acclaimed artist Dan Hillier’s six mesmerising artworks is paired with a unique mandala-esque design. A signed print, created exclusively for the limited edition by the artist, is also included.
In a brilliant new preface, written for The Folio Society, author Alan Moore traces his own – and the literary canon’s – troubled relationship with ‘Providence’s paranoiac prophet’ and unearths a writer ‘more subtly insidious and more magnificently visionary … than the one that you remember or anticipate’.
‘The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown’
- H. P. Lovecraft
