I would like to be kinder, but cannot in all truth recommend a collection that I feel is not up to the mark.
If you're a fan of Gothic art and the darker aspects of other genres, in particular Fantasy, this is definitely for you. The only criticism to be made is that it is produced by a small press, and I'm not entirely sure this is a criticism. Given the nature of Indie publishing, and current technology for POD colour printing, it is bang on spec. It is not, however, as perfect in terms of image quality as you would get from mass market art books. On the other hand you would not get a book published by a mass market press with this sort of collection of images.
It's niche, and cute, and filled with some really great artists you will almost certainly have never even hear of, but will wonder, once you see their work, how it is you've not come across them before.
There are some amazingly talented artists in here, the book itself is a lot thicker than I expected and really good quality. The images really pop and the little snippets written by the artists about what inspired the image or what it was based on are really interesting. Great buy, good 'coffee table' book.
