Clive Barker discusses the long-anticipated third installment in the New York Times bestselling Books of Abarat series: ABARAT: ABSOLUTE MIDNIGHT and the art that has gone into this beautifully illuminated series.
Over 150 full-color paintings by Clive Barker bring Candy Quackenbush’s story to life as she journeys through the world of the Abarat, where every hour is an island in one eternal day, and nothing is as it seems. Candy travels from island to island and across the sea with an unlikely band of friends, from the escaped prisoner Malingo the Geshrat to the quarrelsome John Brothers. But trouble finds Candy wherever she goes. Soon she discovers a secret plot, masterminded by the diabolical Mater Motley, who is obsessed with becoming Empress of the Islands. Her method is simple. She will darken the skies, putting out the suns, moons, and stars. She will bring ABSOLUTE MIDNIGHT.
