Infernal Grotesque: Classical Paintings Of Hell, Demons, Witchcraft & Death by Gianfranco Sodoma (Deicide Press) $34.95 – From the Illuminated Masters series that collects images from the Renaissance and Baroque periods, steeped in beautiful horror, swirling with bizarre and hallucinatory nightmare. These images from 1400-1700 feature landscapes of Hell populated by demons, twisted monsters and the bloody tortures of the damned; saints tormented by infernal visions of devils, sin and the corruption of the flesh; witches’ sabbats of baby-eating, corpse resurrection and bestial fornication; and, finally, grim evocations of death, scattered with skulls, as a warning against earthly avarice and pride.
