'PHANTASMA GOTHICA' is Steve's second artbook release and is a visual tour de force for the connoisseur of all things Phantasma Gothic.

"For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror."

― Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies

I love this quote. It is so true that when we encounter true beauty it can be unnerving, overwhelming. This is true in nature, and also true in human form. And perhaps that's exactly how it should be. Why should beauty be quaint, pretty, safe?

The gothic female is a powerful embodiment of this potent and perilous energy. For me, she has been a constant beguiling muse throughout my career. These works reflect some of my encounters with that deadly beauty.

FEATURING 67 FULL COLOUR, FULL PAGE ARTWORKS

A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTIFICATION - signed by Steve

Steve's art found its roots in the gothic music scene and heady nightclubs of the mid1980s, which he describes vividly.  It grew into a deep love of a tradition that stretches back through the centuries.

At its centre is the ever potent, ever deadly gothic female in all her guises. 
Angel, demon, goddess, harpy, witch, banshee or seer - they are all here.

They are
'BEAUTY AT THE EDGE OF TERROR'

Preview copy review

I spent the morning looking through the pre-release copy and thoroughly enjoyed it. Such an amazing combination of art and writing, it really spoke to me and got me reflecting (and wishing I was alive during the 80s). I currently have that strange feeling you only experience after watching a good film or looking at really good art, where you were transported to another place temporarily but are currently back in reality.

My favourite bit was "the best art comes from my surrender, not my control"

Step into the mind of a master artist

I came across Steve's art in Instagram and could not believe I didn't know who this master artist was and the powerful art that unfolded before my eyes. I immediately found his website and placed an order for The Necropolis and Phantasma Gothica. I love them, they now reside with the other legendary artists books where they belong. Thank you Steve.

Amazing work

Found Steve through Instagram and when he announced an art book I felt I had to own this and so glad I made this choice, his work only improves with the larger size. If I could make one comment it is that this is too small but all the best things come in small sizes (or so I'm told!) I am currently saving for art prints, I will not hesitate to recommend this artists work to anyone interested. Outstanding work and the care with which he (or his team) sent it out shows only care for the work and for those who support him. Buy it if you can.

Phantasma Gothica a journey into Darkness that is a pleasure to undertake

Steve Stone has once again crafted an exquisite journey through a variety of prose and art, his words eloquently gives us insight into his inspiration and motivation to delve into the abyss, gaze into its depth and give life to these Godesses and Warriors that beautifully grace the pages found herein.

"Damaged people are dangerous..." a fitting quote used here that reminds us to continue in our journey through the Darkness for we are not alone. Take strength and wisdom from here.

I look forward to opening this book up in the future many times and finding something new in its pages. Timeless and ever inspiring.
Thank you Steve for crafting this great journey, always with my utmost Respect and Love.

P.S. looking forward to a third.

Hi Mark,
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your review!
I have to tell you a brief story about this. On the day you posted this I was having the day from hell.. Everything that could go wrong was doing just that. So I arrived to dinner with Sian really down in the dumps. So, at the table, she sends me your review and just said, “Read this…”
I read your words and they really lifted me. Thank you so much for your generosity and the encouragement..
I will continue to try and merit your support.
All the best to you,

Steve Stone
