The Twilight Hour: Celtic Visions from the Past
by Sir Simon Marsden
Publisher's Description
The fascination of terror is as ancient as the human race. It is at the very core of our being, and therein lies its power. The Celts believed that the period between day and night-The Twilight Hour-was a perilous time, when one's earthly spirit might cross over into a supernatural world. In this gorgeous volume, Simon Marsden, a master of eerily beautiful photographs, has interspersed his own work with selections from Celtic writing as well as the imaginative works of Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, and others. There are also real-life contemporary ghost stories, reminding us of the dark terrors that still haunt the present. Sir Simon Marsden is an internationally known photographer. His work can be found in many prestigious collections, including the Getty Museum in California and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris. Among his previous books is Venice: City of Haunting Dreams.
