We’re thrilled to offer our readers an exclusive first look at the cover art for House of Leaves Publishing’s forthcoming Scared Sacred: Idolatry, Religion and Worship in the Horror Film. Collecting writings on religion in horror cinema from leading academics, historians, and critics, the book will be released early in 2019. And we cannot WAIT!
The cover features original artwork by Jeremy Thompson, digital artwork by John Sowder, and design layout by Euan Monaghan. The cross, which takes inspiration from designs by the late Simon Sayce, will be foiled in silver. An alternative cover will also be available for a limited edition hardcover — and you KNOW we’ll be collecting both!
The incredible roster of contributors was recently revealed via Rue Morgue (you may find quite a few familiar names on it!) To register interest, head over to holpublishing.com. And keep an eye out for their upcoming crowdfunding campaign, due this autumn.
