“I had another nightmare last night. I don’t remember any of it. I think they are getting worse. Poor my dear, I scared her quite bad. I don’t know what they mean. I’m not sure I want them to go away.”
So reads a single illustrated page in Gris Grimly’s new book Atrum Secretum, which for better or for worse is one of the single most haunting books I’ve ever gotten a chance to sit down with. Basically what we have here is thirteen years of the author/artist’s most secretive thoughts laid out in both a text and illustrated format.
There are things in this book that everyone has thought, but no one would ever dream of sharing. Dark desires. Carnal urges. It’s all there. Atrum Secretum is as perverse as it is powerful. Frightening as it is fragile. This is the most startling and personal look into the mind of a madman you’re ever likely to come across.
If you’re a fan of Gris Grimly, get your order in now. It’s worth every damned penny.
In stores October 1st from Baby Tattoo Books, Atrum Secretum is available for pre-order now at the official Mad Creator website.
