Those who know Lovecraft...

I am working on some personal props and need help. I am attempting to create a tome that's about 200 pages with lots of horrible illustrations and what not but the problem is drawing 50 + bizarre thingsÂ…IÂ’m ok but kind of slow in my drawing so I am asking if any one here knows of good images that I can use? This prop is for me and I do not intend on selling it. I have seen some very good tomes on ebay but right now $100+ is a little steep so I am creating my own. Any links or even drawings done by the talented folks here would be welcome. :D

Check out Wayne Barlowe's site....

Wayne Barlowe

Wayne is best known for his book Barlowe's Guide to ExtraTerrestrials but his new paintings of a tour of Hell is truly terrifying. The stuff is so intense and original, the mind has trouble wrapping around it.

If you're trying to put something similar to a Necronomicon together, try Apocalypse productions (Mike Haspil produced the definitive book prop - his 9 Gates has never been surpassed). The text, fonts, and even the woodcuts are available there.

Another good site would be the H.P. Lovecraft Historical society; they have many paper props available.

Big thanks to the great responces. As for the H.P.L.H.S. I've been a fan for years and own the font/prop cd they made as well as the movies. Gret stuff over there and a talented bunch.

I've tried a search on the net but could not find Apocalypse productions. Is there a link you know of? Or perhaps a key word to help me find it?
