Gothic : The Evolution of a Dark Subculture, Hardback Book

Gothic : The Evolution of a Dark Subculture Hardback


Gothic images are very much a part of contemporary culture, not least for a style tribe with a passion for black.

Gothic has a very long history stretching over hundreds of years of aesthetic evolution, becoming a form of sensational narrative that encompasses fiction, film, television and graphic novels; a genre of underground rock music; and a distinctive visual aesthetic exploited in fashion, the visual arts and digital media.

Gothic has proved marvellously adaptable, and fertile ground for endless imaginative reinvention.

This book provides an introduction to the wealth of Gothic phenomena.

If one thing is true, it is that Gothic knows no boundaries.
