Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.145: Pulp Macabre - The Art of Lee Brown Coye's Final and Darkest Era

Another NecronomiCon 2015 purchase, Pulp Macabre presents a wide selection of famed Lovecraftian illustrator Lee Brown Coye's later work. I've always been a huge fan of Coye's style - the peculiar derangements which he subjects the human form to in his illustrations marks him out as a master of the weird. Coye's work is probably best known from the covers of various classic Arkham House collections (notably Dagon and At the Mountains of Madness); the strange, recurrent stick-like motifs that pepper his art also inspired Karl Edward Wagner to write his highly-regarded Cthulhu Mythos tale 'Sticks'. Nice.
