Necronomnomnom by Mike Slater, Thomas Roache & Kurt Komoda - SIGNED 1st!
Hardcover format, pictorial boards, oversized (9"x12"). This accursed tome is signed by author Mike Slater, and is the original Kickstarter edition (2018) before Countryman Press put out their trade hardcover (which is also gorgeous but slightly less horrifying at first glance - you can see it here: https://greenhandbookshop.com/products/necronomnomnom-by-mike-slater-kurt-komoda). I've had this in the shop for a few years, but just realized I hadn't listed it on the website yet!
This cookbook is hilarious, delicious, and filled with mind-blowing artwork by Kurt Komoda. Highly recommended! The perfect gift for the Lovecraft fan who already owns most of the universe.
Reading about the slime-covered, non-Euclidean ruins of the sunken city of R'lyeh or the squamous, tentacled deity who slumbers there would make anyone hungry. Starting with the puns and working from there, authors Mike Slater and Thomas Roache have summoned forth 50 funny, bizarre, and horrible dishes such as:
- The Deep Fried Deep One
- Nog Sothoth
- The Great Old Buns
- The Gin and Miskatonic
Like H. P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon, the legendary and forbidden book of the dead that is "alien to all sane and balanced readers," this cookbook contains many dark (but still delicious) secrets within its pages. The book comes infested with sanity- melting and mouth- watering illustrations, as well as annotations full of crazed discoveries and desperate warnings about the recipes that brave readers will undertake.
