Whether introducing distortion, violence, the grotesque or the ghostly, each artist alters traditional (super)naturalism to create visions that teeter on the boundaries of the comedic and the downright diabolical. Hinting to an level of existence beyond the scientifically visible universe, the artists in Book 1: Supernaturalism examine the potential for alternate, darker realities. Includes some of the most in-depth interviews and image-rich spreads on emerging and establishing artists available today. Hand-numbered limited edition of 1500. Featured artist Kyle Thomas is personally hand-drawing each cover with a one-of-a-kind artwork. No two books will be the same! Within the purple skeleton-crystal magic mirror, Thomas' playful black ink drawings take new form. Front and back lining gatefold of the book opens out to a stunning three part diagram, loosely based on alchemical & Masonic symbology. Includes custom limited edition inserts throughout the book, including a collaborative sticker with Mat Brown and artist postcard inserts.
