Artistic Representation of Ithaqua

The seller states: Up for auction is an original illustration by Arkham House cover artist, Herb Arnold. This is one of two Arnolds I have up for auction this week. This one depicts "Ithaqua, the Wind Walker", used by August Derleth in stories. This was published in the book "HPL: A Tribute to Howard Phillips Lovecraft" edited by Meade and Penny Frierson. (1972) The book itself was a collection of essays and memoirs by friends and fans of H.P. Lovecraft. It is also illustrated throughout by various artists including Herb Arnold. The piece is approx. 9 1/4" x 5" and is inscribed, on the back, to Stuart Schiff. It is dated (Dec.1971) and signed in full by Arnold.
