The mythical Necronomicon, the book of magic created by the legendary horror writer H. P. Lovecraft inspires artists and creators every day. This fictional tome has numerous renditions, we’ve seen countless times in cinema, literature, toys and popular culture in general. It’s always cool to see H. P. Lovecraft’s mythos stuff going on, but it’s getting harder to see something truly amazing since it’s so widely spread.
That being said, the one and only SKINNER managed to not only surprise us but left us without words with this new release. A project in the making for the last 4 months. Skinner’s interpretation of the Necronomicon in a pop up book version is simply stunning. Shall we take a look?
This stunning piece was made with Rosston Micah Meyer, the pop up engineer behind Poposition press.
Features illustrations from 5 H.P. Lovecraft’s stories; ‘The Shadow Out Of Time’, ‘The Call of Cthulhu’, The Dunwich Horror’, ‘At the Mointains Of Madness’ and ‘The Color Out Of Space’.
