Romancing the Vampire: From Past to Present

( 1 )

Overview

Long before Edward Cullen and the Twilight phenomenon, there was Angel, Barnabas Collins and Bela Lugosi, and many others in between. They are vampires - the undead. Add an infusion of Bella, Buffy and Carla Laemmle, then sprinkle in unforgettable characters such as Renfield and little Eddie Munster, and you have a capsule of how cinematic vampires are viewed by today's world. But there were vampires walking this earth long before the invention of movies and television.

There were vampires walking this earth long before the invention of movies and television. In this book the author weaves a narrative history of vampirism, from the ancient Aztecs ... through the writings of Bram Stoker, Ann Rice, and Stephanie Meyer. But what makes this book even more unique are the replicas tucked inside sleeves and pockets. There are removable photos of Bram Stoker, Carmilla and Lord Byron. For movie buffs, it has posters from Nosferatu, Dracula Has Risen From the Grave starring Christopher Lee, and Bram Stoker's Dracula - along with a replica of Stoker's "Dracula" notes. It also has photographs from Forks, Washington, where the Twilight series is based. Take an eerie walk through the history of the undead, with romance, horror and blood along the way. This beautifully created book is in a slipcase. 12" wide. Includes bibliography and recommended reading. Heavy. Read more Show Less

    An astounding book for those who are vampire lovers...

Full of the information others want to know about...the vampire world! Where, when, how, it all started and how it ending up that vampires became a huge part of this generation. Telling form the ancient story of Vlad Tepes down to Edward Cullen the most beloved vampire this book gives you that and much more...
