H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, first published in 1936, is one of the greatest classics of American horror literature. As the most ambitious story Lovecraft ever wrote, it has served as a source of inspirations for filmmakers and authors in the decades since his death.

The critically acclaimed artist François Baranger was fascinated early on by Lovecrafts creatures and visions which populated the darkest recesses of fantasy, mainly thanks to tabletop roleplaying games. After dreaming about illustrated versions of Lovecraft's works for years, Baranger finally began to create his own vision of the Lovcraftian horror. He has previously interpreted the classic The Call of Cthulhu which received international praise. Now Baranger is pushing the boundaries even further with his bold vision of At the Mountains of Madness.

This is the second volume of two and is a hardback book in the 262 x 350 mm folio format, bringing Lovecraft's horror to life with full-spread images. The first volume was released in November 2020.
