SPECIAL TWENTY DAY PLEDGE DRIVE!!!
GRAND GUIGNOL II: HÄXAN - Satan + The Women who love Him opening 22 OCTOBER 2011.
For official press release:
Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol was founded in Paris in 1897. Its horrific shows were the inspiration for contemporary artists ranging from Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman to Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie. (Think Blue Man Group... but with real blood being splattered on the audience! Brrrrrr!)
Three fabulous resources are here:
Not for the faint of heart, if you have any love at all for Horror or things macabre, you must learn about the Grand Guignol- and you must have this catalog!
Century Guild has been in business since 1999, and has placed artworks in museums and top collections around the world. Since our inception, we have built a collection of some of the most fabulous romantic and macabre art anywhere- including very rare and very special antique posters so rare they are not seen in any books! Last year, we reached out to the Kickstarter community to expand our catalog beyond 16 pages, and the response allowed us to make a fantastic 48 page book.
Help us again to share the artworks that will be on our walls on this night with you in a beautiful book!
In addition to important historical artworks, we have major new works by contemporary artists Dave McKean (Neil Gaiman's collaborator on The Sandman comics, Coraline, and the 2010 Newbery Award winning The Graveyard Book, and director of the film MirrorMask), Symbolist painters Gail Potocki and Chris Mars, Italian poster art collective Malleus, and a few more fabulous artists to be revealed in the weeks to come...
