Antarctica. A place of frozen wastes, desolation, and things best left forgotten. Explore the tale of William Dyer, a professor from Miskatonic University, and the leader of an ill-fated expedition to that remote and forlorn continent. Recorded in a series of letters, Dyers tells a scarcely believable tale full of anomalous and often horrific events. The expedition ventures further than any other before them, and ultimately pays the price for it.
H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness is one of the greatest classics of American horror literature. As the most ambitious story Lovecraft ever wrote, it has served as a source of inspirations for filmmakers and authors in the decades since his death.
The critically acclaimed artist François Baranger was fascinated early on by Lovecraft’s works that explore the darkest corners of human imagination. After dreaming about illustrated versions of Lovecraft’s works for years, Baranger finally began to create his own vision of the Lovecraftian horror. He has previously interpreted the classic The Call of Cthulhu which received international praise.
The book is the first volume of two and is a hardback book in the huge 262 x 350 mm folio format, bringing Lovecraft’s horror to life with lavish, full-spread images.
