The Cephalopoda of the Hawaiian Islands

A little something for Darwin Day, and a collection of illustrations I hadn’t seen before. The Cephalopoda of the Hawaiian Islands (1914) is another title in the splendid (and huge) collection of the Biodiversity Heritage Library whose Flickr sets have been linked here before. Some of those prior examples have ended up being collaged into Lovecraftian entities so there’s always the possibility of that happening to one or two of these illustrations in the future.

    Like these, John! I can see how tempting they are when it comes to crafty Lovecraftian collage…
