H.P. Lovecraft Brewing Dunwich Dunkel T Shirt

by on April 20, 2011

Lovecraft and Cthulhu tea. I have no idea what this is about. I’m familiar with the author HP Lovecraft, but not so much that I would know this Dunwich Dunkel character. Still, I like this shirt just because it’s a little esoteric and it is a very pleasing design. But, because I’m a servant to my dear readership, I will also research for 15 seconds and figure out what the heck the Dunwich Dunkel H.P. Lovecraft T Shirt actually means.

OK, I’m back. Dunkel is a dark beer. Dunwich is a small town in Suffolk, England. That face is H.P. Lovecraft, who specialized in the genre of “weird fiction,” according to his Wikipedia page. And, according to the same page, his “guiding literary principle was what he termed ‘cosmicism’ or ‘cosmic horror…'”

A dark tone in writing, reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft’s writing is often called the Cthulhu Mythos. So, what Tshirt Bordello has produced here is a shirt that speaks to a dark brew of Lovecraft’s making, and equating that with a fine, dark German beer, made in an English town. Got it? Yeah, me neither, but if you’re a fan of H.P. I know you’ll dig this tee.
