Format: Hardcover
This is such a neat art gallery. As a musician, I truly respect a talent when I see it - and Christophe Szpajdel has just proven to be the most interesting underground artist I've come to know. This gallery contains not only logos of hundreds upon hundreds of underground (and well known) Black Metal bands (such as Emperor), but also tattoo designs, website logos, and variants for bands who requested multiple logos be drawn up to represent their band. If you love Black Metal, and you appreciate true artistry and talent - I highly recommend this book. Really is worth the money, for sure.

P.S. The only downside, and this is a personal issue, is that my copy of the book arrived slightly damaged. Other than that, a perfect 10/10.

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.

HASH(0xa8561960) out of 5 stars Breath Taking Dec 9 2010
By Fulton Hawk - Published on
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.

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.

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.

HASH(0xa82d5648) out of 5 stars Superb metal art reference Feb. 7 2013
By w. lucero - Published on

This book is amazing. Such an awesome piece of reference to have for fellow arts/graphic artists. Its basically 230 pages of pure metal logo madness. All the logos are nicely spaced out on a page. Some pages are broken down into what looks like the artists different styles or a particular look he might have been feeling at that time with various band logos in that certain look.

Also some of the pages have one or two giant logos on them. Also I like how between chapters if you want to call them that are photos. Not sure what they are, but they look to be photos of inspiration ranging from trees and water and very natural type elements. Overall this book is just to awesome to not have if your a fan of Black Metal.

Im a graphic artist and to see all the various logos is inspiration in itself and to have this book on my shelf for reference is awesome. Trust me you wont be disappointed.
