The look of Morbid Curiosity magazine was defined by underground and outsider artists. Drawing from punk rock collage, Goth fashion design, and fine arts photography, the magazine's illustrators explored the inevitability of decay, especially the beauty of the skull beneath the skin.

Morbid Curiosity editor Loren Rhoads has gathered prints, photographs, collages, and original artwork to showcase her favorite images from magazine and the book Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues: True Stories of the Unsavory, Unwise, Unorthodox, and Usual. Featured artists include Dorian Katz, R. Samuel Klatchko, M. Parfitt, Erik Quarry, Suzanne Dechnik, Mike Hunter, Chris Schnapp, Hugues Leblanc, and Timothy Renner.
