By Daniel R. Royer on April 25, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Artwork: 5.0 out of 5
I have never reviewed an art book before, so I guess it is only fitting that I start with an artist whose work I love. Now being an art book please note that this book contains tons of GORE-Geous pictures. From the start of page 1 my jaw was slowly opening, by the time I got to page 5 it was on the floor. What I really enjoyed about this collection was that it was not always full-page pieces. At times I was presented with the sketches that led to the final pieces, and that makes the visual experience more fun.

The Book is broken down into 5 sections; sketches, artwork, scarytales, monsters and funny bone. There was not a single one that I did not enjoy looking at. Each section is placed perfectly, because the books builds as it goes on. My favorite might have to be the monster section, but seriously reader, I loved them all. Being presented with all of the insane things that Roman has concocted over the year is fantastic, and I kinda want to see more turn into comics. I am left wondering one thing though, what is with all the veins and nerves?

Being a graphic designer by trade I have to take a paragraph to go over the layout of this book. One thing that plays into the artwork so well are the typefaces. A nice black-letter font for the titles was a perfect choice to fit the theme and still be easily readable. At times even the page backgrounds have this grunge look to them that enhances the visual tone for the artwork. Even the actual design on the hardcover, minus the slip cover is boo-tiful! Overall this book is so perfect for your eyes that you might cry a little, I know I did.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Roman Dirge's comic Lenore( have quite a few tattoos in tribute) so when I found out recently that an art book was out, I ordered it asap. The book is great. I would have liked to see Lenore somewhere but apparently there will be a Lenore art book out sometime in the future(please please please!)

This book shows Dirge's artistic style. Very cool! Must have for Dirge fans.

You don't have to know Roman Dirge's style to appreciate this book of his art, but it helps. This book was printed on high quality paper and the hardcover is great. I have been reading Roman Dirge's comics since I was a teenager, so I felt I needed this book to complete my collection. It's pretty "dark" in style- but the details are wonderful. I'm glad I got it.

Format: Hardcover
You probably know illustrator Roman Dirge from his work on Lenore: The Cute Little Dead Girl. Most of Dirge's work is a delightful mixture of eerie and cartoony, so that the chilling stuff isn't so frightening, yet edgy enough that all the cartoony images have a distinct darkness. Beyond Lenore, Dirge draws a great deal of things, and as the title of Taxidermied would suggest, much of it is of the deathly variety.

The hardcover book handsomely collects Dirge's sketches and illustrations, along with brief descriptions of what inspired each one ("I dreamed I married a zombie" is one typical explanation of a creepy skeletal bride). There is not a huge amount of exposition here, so you get few insights into Dirge's real personality, and yet at the same time, you come away knowing him quite well.

It's worth noting as well that, despite having their ominous overtones, Dirge's illustrations are filled with powerful beauty. Collected here like this, where you can parse through them one by one, they gain an incredible sense of loveliness, believe it or not. The details and precision he infuses within each line shine through and fuel the imagination. If you're a fan of Dirge, this book will be a treat. If you're new to him, enter a darkly comic world if you dare.
