New Cthulhu Cycle Books

I have just finished a set of three Cthulhu Cycle re-covers that I am about to put up for sale on eBay. For those of you who don't know, I make custom hard covers for trade paperback books. I frequently re-cover Cthulhu fiction books published by Chaosium. I have a particular style that I use for these books. The three posted here differ only in that I have chosen to use cast resin pieces for the front cover centerpieces, instead of the usual chipboard glyph centerpiece. I also added some "grunge" to the recesses to give it more depth. Oh, and normally I highlight with gold, but this is the first time I have tried green and copper on one of these books.

These books will be sold individually. They have not yet been posted to eBay, but they will be shortly. You can find them with the link over in the right column to my Rogue Cthulhu eBay page.

UPDATE:  Three years later, and I still have not posted these books on eBay! Oh well. I did just post a new book binding tutorial that describes one of the new techniques I used when making these books; the double end paper hack, as one commenter called it. You can see that post here.


  1. Awesome as ever and I have the supplies and keep meaning to try this based on your tutorials. Maybe the Dracula book I have will be a good one to try it on.

  2. Just found your blog today and I must say it's incredible! Thanks so much for sharing your work.
