Due to its passionate, extreme aesthetic, Goth culture remains both vibrant and vibrantly loved, and continually inspires new developments in pop culture. Both a starting place for newcomers and a source of incisive insights for veterans, Goth Chic examines this dark culture from multiple angles. Each chapter of this lavishly illustrated guide dissects a distinct aspect of the Goth genre, including movies, music, books, graphic novels, and more. Written by an official representative of the Church of Satan, Goth Chic is an insider's view of a fascinating realm.

Review: Goth Chic: A Connoisseur's Guide to Dark Culture

User Review  - Sely Page - Goodreads

I think a more appropriate subtitle would be "a connoisseur's guide to stupid movies about zombies". There's almost nothing about literature, or the actual subculture, and the chapter about music is ridiculously short and incomplete. Money wasted. Read full review
