Defying imitation, dreamlike and visionary, Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast Trilogy occupies a unique place in modern English fiction. Now, for the first time, Peake’s fantastic work of imagination has been brought to life in a dazzling production for the BBC. Written by Estelle Daniel, whose creative force as producer has contributed to the realization of Gormenghast as an unprecedented event in television, this illustrated companion sheds light on every facet of the Gormenghast story. From the strange genius of Peake, whose deeply affecting experiences in feudal China and World War II gave birth to the Gormenghast legend, to the reality of the production, The Art of Gormenghast is a stunning guide to this landmark series.
