Clive Barker is a modern myth-maker.

Clive Barker is a modern myth-maker. Among his most acclaimed works of fiction are The Books of Blood, Cabal, The Hellbound Heart, Imajica, Galilee, and Abarat. He regularly shows his art in New York and Los Angeles, and produces and directs for both the large screen and small. It was a gift for my son who is a Clive Barker fan and had heard about his art. But whoever bound the book did a pretty bad job. Most of the pages were stuck together along the edge, we had to be very careful turning pages so that they didn't rip.

called Clive Barker's Heaven and Hell. And we'll choose a painting or two paintings and we'll just go in for close-ups of the way the paint's been layered and this stuff about the way the paintings are made, which Alicia is incredibly insightful about. The Rizzoli book, Visions of Heaven and Hell, will come out in October and that has a lot of the erotic art in as well as a lot of Abarat art - and a lot of fold-outs, a lot of gatefolds; there are twelve gatefolds in the book, so it will have a lot of really big illustrations in it which is. great, very exciting.

We met Clive Barker when he visited the Clive Barker, acclaimed author, director and producer, podcasts from his new book, Visions of Heaven and Hell, an unbelievable collection of more than 300 of his most stunning drawings and oil paintings. Illuminated with new writings by Barker, this artwork renders with expressionist fervor some of our most primal passions - good, evil, and all that's inbetween.

Would you dare look? Crack open Visions of Heaven and Hell, and you have unlocked a Pandora's box of images .

I agree with those who say that the book is excellent but the binding is terrible. Clive Barker's art is fantastic; his depictions of deviant demons and cherubic angels are simply astonishing. And his little intro's to each chapter are quick, witty, and insightful.

The book would be 5-star perfection, if not for the ridiculous binding. The pages are bound by some sticky shiny gold thing, which makes about every fourth or fifth page stick together. It is sometimes difficult to rip them apart without damaging the ends of the pages, and it is very distracting from the art itself, because sometimes you can't tell if the pages are stuck together or not so you try to count pages and it's just very distracting. I'm shocked that no one noticed this problem before this printing was released.

But the binding problem is not Barker's fault, and his art is amazing. Perhaps not for the young or faint of heart, but amazing nonetheless.

I loved the Abarat books like crazy. A big part of that love came from the art included in the pages. This book fed me more and more of that art, and new stuff on top of that... Some of it's twisted and freaky and all those words that I think Clive Barker likes to hear said about his work. There are some things that are sick but fascinating or very very far out of the ordinary. I enjoyed reading the in-betweens by Barker for whatever reason, probably because I'm such a sycophant. Even the 'twisted horror' images are beautiful. The colors I can never get enough of. Of course you probably wouldn't want to show this book to your grandma, she might not understand why there's pages of junk growing out of places it shouldn't be growing from.

Well, to be honest... It should be shocking to someone who's not in that kind
of ''trip'' (my father, for instance, though he's an artist himself but prefers
some other strange and dark things in his illustrations and digital artwork) and to someone who's not ready to see the world with different eyes.
My point is that there's no need to judge some paintings as bad, if they are morbid, perverse, strange. I do Horror Graphic Novel's, and writing or illustrating not so crazy or perverse stuff, but I'm trying to understand what lies beneath this fragile surface of the human mind...
I'm far from fame and popularity that Mr. Barker ''owns''(barely known in my own city) but I want to say that perversion, blood, monsters, deviants could be interesting also.
It's fascinating how much energy and ideas Mr. Barker has. Here you can see how much he works besides his writing, film making etc.
And here we can see some of his visions, ideas, concepts of the real world,
and of imaginative landscapes. A new lifeforms creeping out of his stories and books. Very vivid and lighter colors are in huge contrast to those dark themes and compositions. And that's very interesting.
One would expect dark colors (like I was), if he or she knows what Mr. Barker is writing about (or making movies and plays).
If you like his work, you will surely like this book. It's 200 something pages of drawings and paintings, and comments by the author himself.
My father said that I'm crazy, but don't trust him... and enjoy!

The images in the book are very to look at they range from beautiful landscapes and villages to horrible looking beasts and monsters. Because of the large number of images with nudity and sex in them this isn't something to get for kids who enjoy the "Abarat" series or "The Thief of Always." The binding is really bad about one out of every five pages is stuck to another page, my big complaint with the binding is that two of the page were stuck together in the middle where the pages meet, as a result the pictures on both pages have huge white spots on them. I still recommend getting this if you like Barker, but if a different binding comes out in the future you should get that one instead.

I bought this used here on Amazon for $5 and I almost want to send Mr. Barker a check, I feel like I stole it. If you like his illustrations you'll like this book. Barker is obscenely talented, no question about it. WELL worth $20 or so for a new copy, don't hesitate, buy it.

An avid Barker fan, it was very worthwhile to come into possession of this collection of his paintings. His imagination never ceases to amaze. Aside from film work and literature, his visionary artwork now completes my collection of Clive Barker's sometimes dark, always intriguing and ever imaginative corpus of work. Highly recommended.
The book itself was what I was hoping for. It was a gift for my son who is a Clive Barker fan and had heard about his art. But whoever bound the book did a pretty bad job. Most of the pages were stuck together along the edge, we had to be very careful turning pages so that they didn't rip.
