The Art of Darkness: The History of Goth

By John Robb

The Art of Darkness is the first major overview of goth music and culture, exploring both it’s legacy and influence. It’s a first-hand account of the post-punk era, the bands and clubs that defined the genre, plus interviews with many of the key players and stars.

It starts with the fall of Rome and concludes with the rise of Instagram, whilst also weaving in a list of characters and artistic movements. These include (George Gordon) Byron, the romantic poets, European folk tales, Gothic architecture, painters and the occult, as it explains the art of darkness that has captivated generations.
