The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.33: The Arte Mephitic

The Arte Mephitic is a long-form poem, accompanied by illustrative woodcuts and presented in chapbook form, detailing the efforts of an 18th century sorcerer to attain the secrets of immortality by evoking the forces of the Cthulhu mythos. 

I backed this as a Kickstarter last year, which brought with it a slew of extras, including the rather handsome red leather bookmark shown above; indeedThe Arte Mephitic is as notable for its production values as much as its contents, having the look and feel of the type of ‘talismanic’ book which seems so popular within the occult scene at the moment (but at a more reasonable price point). 

A worthy addition to the shelves of the more eclectic collectors of Lovecraftiana out there, The Arte Mephitic can be purchased here.
