KAP 1st edition cover art


Recommended Posts

I first encountered KAP in 1985 when a friend bought the boxed set.  I've always loved the cover art from that first edition.  I read somewhere that the original art (or possibly the colour separations) turned up.  Is there any chance of Chaosium offering a print for sale? I recall that CoC art prints were available back in the day.  I had the one featuring a ghoul sitting on a headstone, to my parents' consternation.

There was a thread about that cover art on the old Nocturnal Forms but I don't remember what was posted. I suspect the rights to the art  reverted back tot he artist (Jody Lee) long ago and that to make any sort of print would require some new arrangement. You might be able to find it on Lee's website.

I actually emailed Jody Lee through her website about this, but never received a reply. The last update to the announcement section of her site lists an upcoming appearance in 2012, so she might not be using it much any more...

It could be. She might have also sold the art years ago. It is a popular piece and is over 30 years old.

IIRC, there was a posting here a while ago from either @Jeff or @Rick Meints about finding the old separations when going thru Chaosiums old HQ in Hayward, CA, along with a boatload of other arcane artifacts.

That's probably what I read.  Anyway, it remains my dream to have the art as a nice framable print.

I have been impressed with the quality of artwork for both Call of Cthulhu and Runequest.  A book of artwork for Pendragon would be awesome.

+1!

Even just the book covers of all editions and supplements would make for a beautiful book!

Let's keep on dreaming...
