The Art of Horror
An illustrated history of fearful images
A celebration of frightfully fearful images, compiled by some of the biggest and most respected names working in the genre.
From early engravings, via dust jackets, book illustrations, pulp magazines, movie posters, comic books and original paintings, to today’s artists working entirely in the digital realm, there are some 400 images presented in The Art of Horror, from the shockingly lurid to the hauntingly beautiful. Vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts, devils, serial killers, alien invaders and many more: every aspect of the genre is represented in all its gory glory.
Multiple award-winning editor Stephen Jones and his stellar team of nearly 100 contributors — both writers and artists — have sourced visuals from archives and their own private collections, ensuring an unprecedented selection (including many rarities and a number of previously unpublished pieces) which, alongside the authoritative text, builds into a unique and fascinating history of horror.
With an exclusive Foreword by Neil Gaiman, the award-winning author of The Sandman comic book series, and the novels American Gods, The Graveyard Book, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
