Goth has become a permanent fixture in mainstream culture, but there are a lot of misconceptions about the people who choose to embrace the lifestyle. Gothic Charm School is the complete, fully-illustrated handbook for day-to-day Gothic living as well as an insider’s look for people who are curious about, but not necessarily part of, the subculture.

Jillian Venters, a.k.a.“The Lady of the Manners,” answers questions such as how to dress with a dark flair while going to job interviews; if there is such a thing as “too old” to be a Goth; how to deal with questions and comments from non-Goths; and how to communicate with parents who might be concerned about the new black and spooky wardrobe their child is sporting.

Gothic Charm School is the ultimate guide for anyone who has ever searched for beauty in dark, unexpected places, embraced their individuality, reveled in decadence, or simply known someone who likes to wear black.
