Coulthart on Cthulhu

Today it is John Coulthart’s turn to talk about the Lovecraft art book:

Calling this a book is like calling the Great Pyramid of Cheops a pile of stones, technically accurate but the words somewhat fail to convey the existential reality. This is the heaviest book I’ve ever come across, 400 pages of heavy-duty art paper at BIG size. (Amazon gives the dimensions as 16.1 x 12.6 x 2.3 inches or 409 x 320 x 580 mm.)

Which is, of course, one reason why it is so expensive. But it is lovely too. John has a bunch of illustrations in his post, include a Geiger double-spread.

One thought on “Coulthart on Cthulhu

  1. I’m still in a state of shock. My nine-stone weakling frame needs to undergo a course of weight training to hulk the damned thing about the room.

    Seriously, it’s a thing of beauty, worth every cent of its enormous cost.
