The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.64: Elder Sign Wax Seal Stamp

I picked up this Elder Sign wax seal stamp from Noadi, one of the many traders present at NecronomiCon 2017 (the stamps are also available to purchase here). The creativity and inventiveness shaping the visual and material cultures of the contemporary Lovecraftian milieu - and hence the manifold and monstrously beautiful forms through which Lovecraft’s worlds and influence continue to manifest - never fails to amaze me.

‘Whatever universal masterpiece of tomorrow may be wrought from phantasm or terror will owe its acceptance rather to a supreme workmanship than to a sympathetic theme...Radiant with beauty, the Cup of the Ptolemies was carven of onyx.’ H.P. Lovecraft, Supernatural Horror in Literature.
