Florian Bertmer reinvents "The Call of Cthulhu" with brilliant new cover art

Wow. Florian Bertmer posted a picture of his new "Call of Cthulhu" artwork and it's just stunning.  It's a piece for the Required Reading gallery show, where artists were asked to pick one or two books and create something unique based on them. Done!  I mean, Bertmer has basically reinterpreted my favorite eldritch cosmic horror with heaps of style and buckets of verve. Genius!

  2. It's not art deco at all it's a spoof of the crimson ghost or "Misfits" (the band) logos.

    1. Nope, it's not a spoof at all. The arms are a reference to how Pharaos were buried...
