Black Sabbath: The Illustrated Lyrics is an eight-volume book series, published by The Royal Publisher of Oz, that provides an in-depth analysis of every song from Black Sabbath's original eight albums, including the band's rarely explored themes of social criticism, lament, spirituality and exhortation, as well as their occasional humor.  Accompanying the text are illustrated works from some of the most exciting names in surrealistic, visionary, sci-fi, horror and fantasy art, including modern artists and legendary masters.  If you'd like to contribute artwork to a future volume, or have any questions, contact the publisher here.
