An exhilarating journey through sprawling worlds inhabited by wonderfully strange creatures, Imajica is an astonishing feat of the imagination, straight out of the nightmares of Clive Barker. Published in 1991, this year marks the 30th anniversary of this epic fantasy of myth, magic and forbidden passion.
Vast in conception, meticulously detailed in execution, and apocalyptic in its resolution, Imajica is a tale of ill-fated lovers lost among worlds teetering on the edge of destruction. Gentle is a sensualist and master art forger whose life unravels when he encounters Judith Odell, a woman whose power to influence the destinies of men is greater than she knows, and Pie ‘oh’ pah, an alien assassin who comes from a hidden dimension, one of five in a great system known as Imajica. As Gentle, Judith, and Pie ‘oh’ pah travel the Imajica, they uncover a trail of crimes and intimate betrayals, leading them to a revelation so startling that it changes reality forever.
Upon its release, the novel received high praise from critics and readers alike. Washington Book World raved, “Rich in plot twists, byzantine intrigues and hidden secrets, Imajica is a Chinese puzzle box constructed on a universal scale. Barker has an unparalleled talent for envisioning other worlds.”
Many of the ideas for those worlds came to Clive Barker in dreams. The author was so inspired, he worked at an intense pace to complete the novel in fourteen months, writing up to sixteen hours a day, seven days a week. Barker has frequently named the book his personal favorite of all his writings.

DIAGRAMS FROM THE BYRNE EUCLID OF 1847
Featured in our edition of Imajica by Clive Barker are some of the colorful illustrations from Byrne’s edition of the elements of Euclid. Editions of Euclid had been published for centuries when Byrne’s edition of the first six books of Euclid appeared in 1847, published by Pickering. The first printed edition of Euclid’s treatise on geometry, printed by Erhard Ratdolt in Augsburg in 1482, is, like Byrne’s production of more than three centuries later, often cited by scholars as one of the most beautiful books published in the 19th Century. It includes what are now iconic illustrations of various geometric shapes; colorful diagrams illustrating Euclid’s principles. These geometric shapes relate to the author’s vision of featuring diagrams representing the characters of the Eternal Three. A more detailed note on the diagrams from the Byrne Euclid of 1847 is included with this edition.
Shipping with EVERY pre-ordered copy of Imajica (including the Artist edition), is this limited premium set which includes a Jody Fallon print, “Revelation” print illustrated by Clive Barker, a bookmark and a printed envelope.
