H.P. Lovecraft's illustrations

Leading from

The stories by H P Lovecraft seeded Dan O'Bannon with ideas when he wrote Alien which he tried to writer as something in the manner of Lovecraft and also during the 1970s, H R Giger had a fondness for Lovecraft's ideas since his friend Sergius Golowin had got him interested in his writings and the themes coming through. Lovecraft wrote many letters and also notes for his stories on such things and envelopes and also draw some sketches, and some simple drawings of his monsters can be found
