ARS UMBRA - THE ART OF ESTER SEGARRA book *Signed by Ester Segarra*

Longtime Cult Never Dies ally and contributor to many of our books, including 'Black Metal: Into The Abyss' and 'Non Serviam: The Official Story Of Rotting Christ' finally releases a full length book - and what a luxurious item this is.

A vinyl size hardcover book with sewn binding, anti-scuff matt lamination and 220 interior pages printed on deluxe paper (Munken Lynx) and the digital “Soundtrack to Ars Umbra” as a download code.

Containing over 150 photographs, spanning over 100 bands - with accompanying texts written by the featured musicians, detailing the stories behind many of the pictures - Ars Umbra beautifully captures the energy of an important part of heavy metal history.

The creative eye behind this collection of photographs belongs to Barcelona born photographer, Ester Segarra. Having captured images of the likes of GHOST, WATAIN, ELECTRIC WIZARD, CATHEDRAL, MAYHEM, KATATONIA, PARADISE LOST, AT THE GATES, CARCASS, DARKTHRONE, ROTTING CHRIST, VENOM, ABBATH, TRIPTYKON, SHINING, BEHEMOTH and others, she has now preserved these photographs in a book that is yours to enjoy and reflect upon for many years to come.

Understanding the umbilical link between visual art and music, Ester commissioned a soundtrack to accompany the book. Inspired by a Macumba ritual she attended, the instrumental soundtrack was written and performed by Uno Bruniusson (ex-In Solitude, Death Alley, Procession); it provides a unique rhythm and adds another layer of artistry to the whole Ars Umbra experience.

 

These books are signed by the photographer herself.
