Synopsis from publisher:
THE DREAMING: THROUGH THE GATES OF HORN AND IVORY is a collection of dark tales about the inhabitants of the subconscious world. When people sleep, they enter the Dreaming, a magical realm populated by fantastical beings and creatures. Equally burdened and blessed by human emotions and motivations, these entities each play a role in their world and the world of reality. Depicting stories of redemption, salvation, freedom, peace, and tragedy, this thought-provoking book features the adventures of the caretaker of the Dreaming, a cursed raven, the librarian of dreams, the biblical Eve, and a sadistic being obsessed with eyeballs.

This publication is the second, and so far, final collection of The Dreaming comic book series. Issue #15 was written and illustrated by Jeff Nicholson. Issue #16 was written by Peter Hogan and illustrated by Gary Amaro. Issues #17 to #19 were written by Caitlin Kiernan and illustrated by Peter Doherty. Issue #19 was also illustrated by D’Israeli. Issues #22 to #24 were written by Kiernan and illustrated by Paul Lee. Issue #25 was written by Hogan and illustrated by Chris Weston. The cover was created by Dave McKean.

This collection omits issues #20 and #21, written and illustrated by Al Davison. This series continued until 2001 with issue #60. Those issues have not yet been collected or reprinted.
