Overview

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.

I want this book so very much!  I have seen a little sample of his "journals" and cannot imagine this book as being anything but brilliant!

This was really good. The look of the pictures and art style, etc was also good. If you're a fan of Del Toro then you'll like this. Love the art style especially.

Not only is this a colorful glimpse of Guillermo's personal collection, it is also an intelligent and insightful look into the mind and creative processes of a brilliant director and artisan.
