With a history stretching over centuries, the gothic has a distinctive visual aesthetic that is fertile ground for imaginative reinvention--and that has been exploited across the arts and in popular culture. From Frankenstein and film noir, to the music of Bauhaus and punk rock, to contemporary art and funereal fashion, this richly comprehensive book covers the genre in all its unearthly glory.
