The Evolution of HPL's TCoC (fbr), Page One by DrFaustusAU The Evolution of HPL's TCoC (fbr), Page One by DrFaustusAU
With Chaosium's hardback release of _H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)_ apparently imminent, I thought some of you might be interested in a glimpse of how the first page's art was edited and revised over time.  The most recent revisions took place during 2016 in preparation for printing, with approximately one third of the book's artwork being updated.

Thanks for all the support, folks!

Is it me or does the second version of the character look like H.P.Lovecraft himself? Also I love the evolution of the face and hands, from human to Seuss.

Yeah, I believe that was sorta the intention at the time.  But it eventually went away over the years. :)

There's going to be a proper book of this?  I must get my hands on one.  Well, TWO.  One I will certainly be getting for my little nephew for when he's ready.

So weirdly beautiful how it becomes gradually Whovian only to revert almost all the way back to the late October 2001 version (only cleaner).

It's been so long since I've read word about the book that I presumed the deal fell through. Delighted to see I was wrong!

He seems to be getting quieter... and more scared.
