H.P. Lovecraft´s The Dunwich Horror, Illustrated by Baranger, is Coming October 26

The Old Ones Draw Ever Near

Stockholm, Sweden (October 12, 2023) — Enter the desolate, decrepit Massachusetts village of Dunwich. A village lost in the depths of the inhospitable countryside with its dark, bramble-covered valleys, ancient witch stories live on, and strange underground noises sometimes echo beneath the hills topped by mysterious stone circles.

Brace thyself, for a tale of dark rituals, witchcraft, and the looming shadow of the Old Ones awaits. Free League Publishing and Design Studio Press today revealed that the illustrated edition of H.P. Lovecraft’s iconic story, The Dunwich Horror, by acclaimed artist François Baranger, is set to arrive close to Halloween on October 26.

The Dunwich Horror is a true classic of American horror and a dark tale of powers from beyond our world. The book is available for pre-order at the Free League webstore. A full retail release by Design Studio Press will follow.

H.P. Lovecraft is a giant of horror literature and popular culture. Since the 1920s, his short stories and novels have spellbound generations and influenced countless games, comics, novels, records, and films. His novella The Dunwich Horror, written in 1928 and first published in Weird Tales in 1929, is an absolute classic. Now, François Baranger presents the epic illustrated version of the story.

Baranger’s The Dunwich Horror is a beautifully produced hardback book in the huge 262 X 350mm folio format, bringing Lovecraft’s horror to life with lavish, full-spread images.

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 Lovecraftian horror. He has previously interpreted the classics The Call of Cthulhu and At the Mountains of Madness, published by Free League in collaboration with Design Studio Press, which received international praise.
