Since it's a holiday today in the United States and Canada, I thought I'd take a day off from deep thoughts and offer a piece of weird old art from my collection.
The above image comes from a nineteenth century book on natural history, Land and Sea by J. W. Buel (1887), and is meant to depict early land-dwelling creatures. But these might just as well pass for Lovecraft's Deep Ones in their essentials!
I am an author and researcher focusing on pop culture, science, and history. Bylines: New Republic, Slate, etc. There's more about me in the About Jason tab.
