Since nobody’s posted here in ages, I give you a wooden cover I just made for a book I’m binding. It’d make a nice cover for a Mythos tome, I think. I’m going to see if I can use it in a Coptic binding with copper wire instead of string.

Wow, that's gorgeous.
Sort of a Chinese fu dog version of Cthulhu.

Thanks! I was actually inspired by some pictures of Olmec art I was looking at. If any ancient civilization worshipped inhuman alien star-gods, then judging by their artwork the Olmec were it. Tell me some of this stuff isn’t creepy. ^_^

Fascinating!

Lovecraft describes the carvings of ancient people for good reason.

If by "creepy" you mean "monumentally awesome"!
Years ago, I proclaimed myself The Discordian Imperial UberGawdess of Easter Island And All Heads Which Therein Dwell... I may have to annex that to include the Yucatan. ;p
