The art of horror

by Stephen Jones | 10 November 2015
Category: Art & Design
Synopsis
Amazingly, there has never been a book quite like The Art of Horror-a celebration - of frightful images, compiled and presented by some of the genre's most respected - names. While acknowledging the beginnings of horror-related art in legends and - folk tales, the focus of the book is on how the genre has presented itself to the - world since the creations of Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley first became part of the - public consciousness in the 19th century. It's all here: from early engravings-via - dust jackets, book illustrations, pulp magazines, movie posters, comic books, and - paintings-to today's artists working entirely in the digital realm. - Editor Stephen Jones and his stellar team of contributors have sourced visuals - from archives and private collections (including their own) worldwide, ensuring an - unprecedented selection that is accessible to those discovering the genre, while - also including many images that will be rare and unfamiliar to even the most committed - fan. - From the shockingly lurid to the hauntingly beautiful-including images of - vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts, demons, serial killers, alien invaders, and - more-every aspect of the genre is represented in ten themed chapters. Quotes - from artists/illustrators, and a selection from writers and filmmakers, are featured - throughout.
