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 Gothís 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, itís 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 Voltaireís 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. To truly understand Art Nouveau (and its successor, Art Deco) in the organic forms first created by neo-Gothic architects. 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. Fantastic introduction to or review of the contraditory meanings of "Gothic Style" after the Middle Ages.
