The Shepard Cafeteria

Wonderful! Thank you so much for this.

TENTACLII :: H.P. Lovecraft blog

On display as part of the NecronomiCon 2013 exhibitions, a postcard that H.P. Lovecraft sent to Donald Wandrei in 1934, with his own ink drawing overlay and self-portrait. Part of the Brown University collection…


It presumably shows his black writing materials case, seen resting at the foot of the chair. This was commented on by several people in Lovecraft Remembered, but was never photographed only photographed once.

The Shepard Cafeteria postcard as a clean scan…
