A Lovecraft Retrospective is a stunning achievement. I truly do not have adequate skill with words to convey its magnificence. It is the most glorious book in my library. Everything about this books is larger than life, it seems. The dimensions are 16.1 x 12 .6 x 2.3, pages large enough that we may better appreciate in the artists' craftsmanship. Shipping weight was 13.6 lbs, indicating the high quality of the paper used. I do not have any of the special limited editions; my copy is cloth bound with a slip cover and a slip case. The cover is Michael Whelan's brilliant Lovecraft Mythos Diptych from 1980, which also appears in the book as a 4 page fold out. Production qualities are flawless; Centipede Press did not take any shortcuts with this books. Page count is 400. There is no index, well enough, as my copy has no numbering on the pages. Instead, and more usefully, each illustration is shown in the back in a large thumbnail giving the artist, the date of production, the context and the medium. Yes there is some text, including Harlan Ellison's introduction, Bob Price's essay on the Necronomicon and the afterward by Thomas Ligotti. There are some introductions to put the works into context and brief biographies of the artists. The largest part, however, of the pages are devoted to the art. Many paintings are given an entire page, with a generous number of double page pull outs to allow us to revel in the artists' visions. A Lovecraft Retrospective shows the art inspired by Lovecraft ever since the first publication of his works to the present day; the artists use very conceivable medium: ink, oil, acrylic, collage, brass. The incredible beauty of this book beggars my ability to describe it so I will just share some of my favorite things about it. Most of the covers from our favorite books are here. There is a depiction of a Pickman painting by Hannes Bok! Ever since I read Lin Carter's introduction to Beyond the Golden Stair I have longed to see Bok's paintings! If only there were more. I literally became breathless and choked up when I saw the reproduced covers of the Lancer, Beagle and Ballantine issues of Lovecraft's works from the 1970s. These are the books that introduced me to Lovecraft and my own copies crumbled away so very many years ago, read into oblivion. There is a very generous selection of HR Giger's illustrations from the Necronomicon, many as two page fold outs. Keith Evans' 2004 Cthulhu and Dave Carson's Cthonian show what may be done with digital media. Tim White's masterful covers get their due. Gahan Wilson's Wilbur Whately rubs shoulders with Jeff Remmer's Night Gaunt. Bob Eggleton's covers are here in all their glorious colors. Previously I have lamented that John Coulthart's R'lyeh was done an injustice in its previous reproductions. Here we see it as it was meant to be seen, and in full color. It is impossible to choose a favorite; it is impossible to do justice to this book.

If I missed anything it was the lack of the paintings by Yamada Akihiro that grace the covers of Lairs of the Hidden Gods series from Kurodahan Press. Other readers complained about typographical errors, which are not uncommon with Centipede Press books, but I was so dazzled I didn't mind a bit.

I am forever indebted to Centipede Press for A Lovecraft Retrospective. Much inadequate kudos goes to Jerad Walters and Joseph Wrzos, and the entire dedicated team who gave this to us. Some may balk at the price tag ($276.50, heavily discounted by Amazon) but it's only money. If you buy this book you will never regret it. Years from now you won't miss the money and you will have something irreplaceable.

OMG - this is the biggest book I've ever seen and by far the most breathtaking. The artwork is awesome. Many foldout pages. It's amazing that so much art has come from the works of an author who was with us for such a short time. It truly speaks to the power of Lovecraft's work.
