A new art book is on it’s way and it looks very promising! The Necronomicon Pop-Up Book is the fourth pop-up title published by Poposition Press and it’s the darkest and most evil pop-up book ever made. For those who want to be first, you can already pre-order this beauty. We just can’t wait to get our hands on a copy of The Necronomicon Pop-Up Book and as soon as we can, we will share a video review about this book. But first things first! Lets take a closer look at what we know already!
This pop up tome of unimaginable freakish fright was inspired to become real when Skinner started working with Poposition Press a few years ago as one of the artists featured in the Pop Up Art Book. He saw what was a gateway to potential occult heresies. His horrible rattling maggot mind started to germinate ideas… What could he do to merge his love for disturbing weird horror and his own interest in the macabre pop up arts?
The Necronomicon Pop-Up Book is based on the works of early 20th century writer H. P. Lovecraft. His famous horror fiction tales, published only in pulp magazines, became legendary over years and a great inspiration for many writers, comic artists and illustrators. Lovecraft’s classic horror stories know many adaptations but this one must be the most original and graphic of all!
This pop-up book is a dark and sinister pop-up title with five spreads illustrated by Skinner and engineered by Rosston Meyer. In case you’re wondering: this book is named after the fictional Necronomicon book, mentioned by Lovecraft in The Hound, and it’s more real than ever. Skinner’s bizarre and psychedelic style reminds us of the classic cartoons and Heavy Metal album artwork from the 80’s. A perfect fit for a horror themed pop-up like this. Lovecraft’s tales and Skinners artwork combined with Rosston Meyer’s engineering, it all looks amazing.
The gallery above shows colorful close-ups of Skinners bizarre artwork captured in 3D pop-up scenes. The first spread named At the mountains of Madness tells H. P. Lovecraft’s story about the events of a disastrous expedition to the Antarctic continent in September 1930 and what was found there by a group of explorers, led by the narrator Dr. William Dyer. A horrifying story that even looks more terrifying trough the imagination of Skinner.
