I found this to be a very interesting and informative book. As a visual artist that tends to make darker work it provides some conceptual theories as to why I, along with other artists, are doing so. However, the book is poorly bound and my copy has detached from the cover. I am hoping that the pages stick together. But overall I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about the variety of work that comprises "Gothic Art."

I'm often fascinated by what others think is "Gothic". This remarkable book definitely has fantastic descriptions and interesting insights into what the world of the darker arts represent. For me, I was amazed and stunned by the illustrations and photos, and inspired to give my hand at some the sculptural and mix-media pieces! This is a lot fun and dark humored artwork! Perfect for anyone who's looking for something different!
