4 amazing illustrators interpret H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Temple"
Somehow or other I happened across this awesome faux movie poster for H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Temple." In trying to find it again to share with all you Lovecrafters, I stumbled upon more awesome illustrations that other people had done for the story (see below).
If you read the story (it's free online here) you'll see why all these artists get fired up about it...it's packed with awesome visuals, or at least hints of visuals in the maddeningly vague yet complex Lovecraftian way. Now that I've seen all these great scenes from the story and the awesome fake movie poster, all I can think of is...I'd love to see this as a film! Can someone get on that please?
You can find the original art here, here, here and here.
