This introduction provides an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The focus of the book moves from the earliest Gothic architecture to décor and visual aspects of theatrical design, masquerade and dance. It focuses on paintings in two historical spans from Jan Van Eyck to Henry Fuseli from Goya to H. R. Giger, and considers Clovis Trouille's works influenced by horror films and Vincent Castiglia's paintings in blood. The book deals with Gothic photography from Daguerreotypes onwards, with particular emphasis given to the work of Simon Marsden and Paul Koudounaris. It also provides an overview of major trends in Gothic and Goth costume and jewellery with reference also to descriptions of these adornments in Gothic novels. The book opens with a survey of the development of newer Gothic media, such as video gaming, and survival horror apps.
