Fashion Friday – Can you resist his call?

Guys this is such a cool shirt. It’s a cool website all around, but this shirt is so very cool. These guys take books, and print the entire book on t-shirts, posters, totes, etc in such a way that the negative space forms a picture. This one is H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Call of Cthulu”. Have you read Lovecraft? He’s considered to be one of the forefathers of horror fiction, though when he died he was virtually unknown and broke. Hearbreaking, because he was incredibly talented.

The story centers around a strange cult worshipping Cthulu, who is described as a weird combination of octopus, dragon, and a human caricature. An inspector named Legrasse interrogates a cultist and finds, “They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men…and…formed a cult which had never died…hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the great priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R’lyeh under the waters, should rise and bring the earth again beneath his sway. Some day he would call, when the stars were ready, and the secret cult would always be waiting to liberate him.”

If you haven’t read it, you should. And once you read it you should buy this shirt, and then maybe buy me one too?
