A Lavish Spectacle of Lovecraftian Art
Ever since we found the illustrated version of The Call of Cthulhu by the French illustrator François Baranger, we've been fans. He's followed up that fantastic work by illustrating another of HPL's celebrated stories, At the Mountains of Madness. The first volume has just been published in English and is quite simply, spectacular.
This new English edition published by Fria Ligan and Design Studio Press features gorgeous paintings from the HPL's tale of Antarctic horror. Baranger's approach to the tale is bold and cinematic - you feel as if you're looking at storyboards for a movie. The scale and intensity in the illustrations are breathtaking.
The book is a large format hardback, 14 x 10.5 inches. The print quality is superlative. Really, if you're into Lovecraftian art, you'll want a copy of this. Note: this is Vol. 1 of a two volume set. Vol. 2 has not yet been published in English and is due out in November of 2021.
