Paint It Black: A Guide To Gothic Homemaking
Home decorating will never be the same. Close your curtains! Throw away your summery linens!
Forget about those white eyelet pillow covers! And for Goth’s sake, buy some black lights!
Voltaire is here to help you with your home decorating dilemmas, guide you through the
hardware stores and decorating centers (which are so difficult for Goths to navigate), and lay it
all out on the line about which shade of black goes with which shade of black. In this world of
pastels and plaids, it’s so hard for Goths to find anything aesthetically appealing. You go in
search of Edward Gorey and wind up with an eyeful of Eddie Bauer. With Voltaire’s Paint It Black
you can turn the unbearably mundane into the delightfully macabre with little more
than a touch of creativity and a can of black spray paint.
The revival of Gothic style, which began in the eighteenth century, has been associated
with a range of rationales that run from striking horror to reaching for the heavens.
Mahoney, senior editor for House Beautiful, has produced an impressively illustrated
survey of the Gothic style that starts with examples from the English landscape garden
and ends with the "transformation" of Gothic in the U.S. since the Civil War. Mahoney
vividly describes the personalities of notable architects and designers.
Gothic Revival - Art and Ideas
At the height of the Victorian period, a craze for Gothic style swept England and spread far
beyond. Gothic architecture, associated with the social and cultural ideals of the Middle Ages,
was seen as a means of remaking the modern world. Gothic history in the 17th century to Barry
and Pugin's Houses of Parliament in the mid-19th century. Yet Gothic is not just buildings:
continually recreated, it has taken the form of poetry and fiction, of painting and sculpture, of
movies and video games, of Gothic music and Gothic punk. Gothic became a dominant cultural
and architectural force not only in 19th-century Britain, but across Europe, in the United States
and in the countries of the British Empire. This book deals comprehensively with the Gothic Revival.

If you wishe to better understand 19th and early 20th century architecture (and perhaps their own local parish church building), this is a very good introduction to the subject.
