Book Description

Oct. 21 2013

Over the last two decades, writer-director Guillermo del Toro has mapped out a territory in the popular imagination that is uniquely his own, astonishing audiences with Cronos, Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, and a host of other films and creative endeavors. Now, for the first time, del Toro reveals the inspirations behind his signature artistic motifs, sharing the contents of his personal notebooks, collections, and other obsessions. The result is a startling, intimate glimpse into the life and mind of one of the world's most creative visionaries. Complete with running commentary, interview text, and annotations that contextualize the ample visual material, this deluxe compendium is every bit as inspired as del Toro is himself.

Contains a foreword by James Cameron, an afterword by Tom Cruise, and contributions from other luminaries, including Neil Gaiman and John Landis, among others.

If you are a fan of Guillermo del Toro's body of work, this book is a must-have. It is visually stunning, gives you insight into the man as well as his artistic vision, and even a glimpse of some of his unfinished projects. He is one of my favourite directors across all genres and this book is amazing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Cool June 18 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Amazon.ca discounted the **** out of this ($240) and made it more worthwhile. I saw it for $700+ on other sites (even amazon.com) which is a total ripoff (big, big, ripoff). I'm a del Toro fan so I really wanted this and the book is totally worth it. All the extras are nice too but I wish the cabinet was made of wood and not cardboard. I assumed the expensive price tag meant it was made of wood. I also wish the del Toro autograph was on the actual book and not an autographed card pasted into the book. I tend to get suckered into limited edition items but you'd probably be better off just buying the hardcover book alone at $45. But good on Amazon.ca for the massive discount which made the whole thing hurt a lot less.
