A visually compelling look at one of the most popular and compelling styles in art, fashion, and literature: the Gothic Goth-inspired chic is very much a part of contemporary culture—especially for a cool young tribe with a penchant for black. But it also has a long history stretching over centuries, becoming a distinctive narrative form that encompasses everything from art and architecture to literature, fashion, film, television, digital media, graphic novels, and music. Marvelously adaptable, the gothic aesthetic has proven fertile ground for endless imaginative reinvention, and this collection provides the first fully illustrated introduction to every aspect of the phenomenon—one that is truly without boundaries and ever-evolving.New paperback edition of Gothic.
