Arkham House Cover Art

Cover for "Who Fears the Devil" by Manly Wade Wellman.

AbeBooks has posted an exhibit of Arkham House cover art by artists Ronald Clyne, Frank Utpatel, Richard Taylor, Hannes Bok and others. It’s a collection you’re unlikely to see anywhere but online these days:

August Derleth and Donald Wandrei founded Arkham House in 1939. Wandrei left the press after World War II but Derleth continued, editing collections and writing himself. The Arkham House name comes of a fictional city in New England widely used by Lovecraft, who is famous for creating the Cthulhu Mythos.
