Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: Hardcover BookSeptember 17th, 2013
Guillermo del Toro is best known as the writer and director of the imaginative science fiction films Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim among many others. We’ve previously featured some images from his well-used sketchbooks, in which he captures his ideas for his films. Now you can own your own version of del Toro’s sketchbooks and notebooks in a hardcover volume, Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions.
As described: “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.”
You can also purchase a special limited edition of Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities which is an actual two-drawer replica of a cabinet and featuring never-before-released artwork and a trio of custom components drawn from his films. Each limited edition hardcover presentation is signed by del Toro himself and is currently priced at $633 on Amazon.
