Book Description

Jan. 1 2010
This book is a collection of work by Christophe Szpajdel, an artist whose fans in the underground black metal community worship him as the Lord of the Logos. It includes hundreds of powerful logos, each of which captures the force of this musical genre anew. Through his surprising use of aesthetic influences such as art deco and nature, Szpajdel has brought a new dynamic into the gothic visuality of heavy metal. This publication, which is done in the style of a black prayerbook, shows not only how he has succeeded in leaving his own visual mark on this music, but how he has also expanded the canon of forms it uses.

5.0 out of 5 stars This shouldn't dissappoint. March 1 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great cover, great contents.

Christophe Szpajdel's logo designs are fantastic, and this collection is worth having if you like his style. I leaf through it when I'm not feeling metal or grim enough. One must maintain.

The logos are grouped more or less by their genre, or, more specifically, by photographs of the natural scenes that inspired the calligraphy. In terms of additional notes and words from Christophe Szpajdel, there is none. It's just the art and the photos. At the back of the book there's a helpful index if you're looking for a certain band. It's a good size book, and there are plenty of logos to go through.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book but not a hardcover. Dec 28 2013
By Evan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love the book but am a bit pissed that I paid a little more for it on here because it said it was hardcover when it is not. Its a softcover that is made to look like a hardcover. I'm guessing they don't actually make this in a hardcover version. Just wanted to warn everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well I'll be damned... May 1 2013
By N. Constantino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had no idea how prolific Christophe Szpajdel was prior to seeing so much of his work laid out so beautifully in this collection. One look at this book and you will never look at a black metal logo as unreadable tree root font ever again. Wonderfully inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breath Taking Dec 9 2010
By Fulton Hawk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Christophe's work is iconic and this volume of it is epic. Page after page of hand crafted brilliance. It would be short sighted to say this is only a "Death Metal" logo book. Christophe's Art Deco and Art Nouveau work is equally amazing. I've purchased the book on 4 separate occasions for other illustrators. A must have in any art book collection.
3.0 out of 5 stars The Book is Awesome; the construction is not. May 3 2014
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Don't be fooled by the beautiful gold lettering and faux-whatever texturing. The cover and spine are like cardboard thin and you have to treat the book fairly delicately.

On the plus side the content is great. It's easy to underestimate the number of logos within but there's a lot. Like a lot a lot.
