Volume 5 of the Imaginer series, the ongoing presentation of brand new digital capture images of Clive Barker’s astonishing artwork, will be published by the Clive Barker Archive in early 2018

“If people want to know who I am or where I get my ideas from or why I write the things that I do, Imaginer is the answer to that question."

Clive Barker, The Hollywood Reporter, 2014


Phil and Sarah Stokes – authors of the Memory, Prophecy and Fantasy series and the Revelations website and Clive’s long-time archivists – are continuing the multi-volume publication of the definitive collection of Clive’s artwork in the vibrant colour and depth showcased in the first four volumes.

“We’ve been happily involved with the Imaginer series since its inception and we’re delighted to be bringing the whole venture into the Archive project.  Our goal is to bring the finest quality books and other materials to the many friends we’ve come to know through Clive’s works over many years.  Our heartfelt thanks to everyone in advance for your support!”
