Lovecraft Arts & Sciences

Lovecraft Arts & Sciences is a store in the Providence Arcade that serves as both a visitor center for H.P. Lovecraft fans and an emporium of related books, art, and curiosities. For a cozy space, we carry a wide range of titles: weird, horror, and science fiction; and nonfiction including New England folklore, history, the supernatural, science, astronomy, and archaeology. In addition to original art, we sell prints, posters, and T-shirts designed by Lovecraft-inspired artists. We also carry maps and brochures of Lovecraft's Providence for visitors wanting to take self-guided walking tours.The shop is the headquarters of the Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council, a nonprofit educational organization that hosts the biennial Lovecraft convention, NecronomiCon Providence, and brings year-round related programming to the public. Proceeds from sales support our ongoing mission to anchor the global fame of H.P. Lovecraft in his hometown of Providence.
