The Damage Museum by Vincent Sammy

The Damage Museum is a dark little horror of an art book. I bought the hardcover version and on the back is a ticket stub, as if we are visitors. The chapters have similar ticket stubs.

It opens with one of my favourite paintings by this artist, “Square One”, which is of a zombified astronaut with an open helmet, her communications equipment dripping with ichor.
This chapbook is for fans of dark science fiction and horror, and if that’s not your bag give it a miss. The bloody sheets of “Skin” will chill your blood. The cephalopod-human hybrids of “Scorpio” and “Cancer” were unsettling, but more interesting than frightening.
“Clostridium” shows classic sci-fi ray-guns, but with melted skin stringing from the clip of a rifle.
There are many more gems, including a painting of Emperor Norton (of America) with an imaginary crown and scepter.
It’s worth your time. Recommended.
