Orne Library Postcard

From 1926, the main entrance of the Orne Library at Miskatonic University. Click through for the full-sized version.

The Orne Library is the third of the "Life In Arkham" postcards. After the release of the first two I received a lot of requests for more "recognizable" locations, and this is the result. I wanted a location that would fit in with the upcoming Miskatonic University package and looked to Brown University, one of Lovecraft's primary inspirations for his fictional college, to find it. When I discovered an almost pristine 1921 postcard of the school's library I thought it would make a perfect stand-in for the Orne Library.
