Goth Favourites

Are you a lifestyle goth or just a one-day-a-year fan of the darkness? Whatever your style, these books are sure to put some much-needed gloom in your day.

    The Dictionary of Demons

    "The Dictionary of Demons" starts with a simple premise: names have power. Throughout medieval and Renaissance Europe, it was believed that a demon's true name could summon it, compel it, and bind it. Paranormal expert Michelle Belanger has compiled the most complete compendium of demonic names available anywhere, using notorious and obscure sources from the Western grimoiric tradition. This beautifully packaged book, which includes short articles on many facets of demonology, is destined to become a classic reference work.

    Damned

    Thirteen year old Madison has problems: she's overweight, ignored by her movie star parents, and in love with her adopted brother. She's also dead. But not just dead. Madison is in Hell. Chuck Palahniuk's latest, "Damned", takes us on Madison's journey through Hell, as she navigates the Hillocks of Discarded Nail Pairings and the River of Vomit, meeting everyone from Charles Darwin to Marilyn Monroe, with a colorful cast of characters (damned for unspeakable acts, like wearing white shoes after Labor Day), to determine why she's really there, and whether she will be damned for eternity. In "Damned", Hell really does exist, as a place where your only career choice is telemarketer (yes, that's where those calls actually originate), the currency is Halloween candy, and 'the in-flight movie is always "The English Patient", never "The Breakfast Club".' With witty, laugh-out-loud prose, and a twist like only Palahniuk can write, this dark comedic novel is sure to be ranked among his best.

    Bauhaus

    En l'espace de quatorze années fugaces, prise en étau entre deux guerres mondiales, l'école d'art et de design allemande Bauhaus a changé la face de la modernité. Guidée par des idéaux utopiques, l'école développa une fusion révolutionnaire entre beaux-arts, artisanat et technologie, qui s'appliquerait à la peinture, la sculpture, le design, l'architecture, le cinéma, la photographie, l'art textile, la céramique, le théâtre et les installations d'art. À la fois communauté intensément humaine et collectif ouvert au public, le Bauhaus fut fondé par Walter Gropius (1883-1969) et compta parmi ses membres Josef et Anni Albers, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, Gunta Stölzl, Marianne Brandt et Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Dans ses locaux successivement installés à Weimar, Dessau et Berlin, l'école encouragea les échanges charismatiques et créatifs entre enseignants et étudiants, tous dotés de styles et de goûts personnels et variés, mais unis par leur idéalisme et leur intérêt profond pour l'oeuvre d'art totale, qui puise dans différentes disciplines et pratiques. Ce livre célèbre l'audace novatrice du mouvement Bauhaus, précurseur dans le développement du modernisme et paradigme de l'éducation artistique, au sein duquel la conjonction entre totale libération de l'expression créative et idées d'avant-garde donna naissance à des créations magnifiques et fonctionnelles.

    The Halloween Tree

    "A fast-moving, eerie...tale set on Halloween night. Eight costumed boys running to meet their friend Pipkin at the haunted house outside town encounter instead the huge and cadaverous Mr. Moundshroud. As Pipkin scrambles to join them, he is swept away by a dark Something, and Moundshroud leads the boys on the tail of a kite through time and space to search the past for their friend and the meaning of Halloween. After witnessing a funeral procession in ancient Egypt, cavemen discovering fire, Druid rites, the persecution of witches in the Dark Ages, and the gargoyles of Notre Dame, they catch up with the elusive Pipkin in the catacombs of Mexico, where each boy gives one year from the end of his life to save Pipkin's. Enhanced by appropriately haunting black-and-white drawings."--Booklist
