Lovecraft's Legacy: 2007 Lovecraft Exhibit

At the Maison d'Ailleurs, or the House of Elsewhere, HPL will be on exhibit. In 1976, French sci-fi buff Pierre Versin donated his collection of tens of thousands of science-fiction books to the Swiss spa town of Yverdon-les-Bains, just north of Lausanne, on the condition that it be made available for public viewing. The result was the launch of Europe's only public science-fiction museum. A show on the American horror and fantasy writer H.P. Lovecraft is scheduled for October, and a new permanent wing dedicated to Jules Verne, the 19th century French writer widely considered the father of science fiction, is planned for next year.

2007 April 12th HP Lovecraft - A celebration
Maison d'Ailleurs is planning an important exhibition around HP Lovecraft for October 2007, celebrating the 70th anniversary of his death. Based on the "Commonplace Book" (a series of ideas and notes written by HPL), the show will present works by major illustrators, artists and writers. An exhibition of Unspeakable Things indeed!
