Product description

Review

"In "Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters," San Francisco based writer August Ragone has produced a fond, generously illustrated biography of the tokusatsu (special effects) genius " "Time magazine," December 13, 2007 "The difference between this book and other coffee table volumes that have covered daikaiju before, though, is the staggeringly researched detail that Ragone has put into the text itself. This is not just a picture book to flip through, nod approvingly at and stick on the shelf; this is a record easily in scale with the monsters Tsuburaya created a critical and historical look at the creation and output of an industry that spanned (and has continued to span) the decades. "Tooth and Dagger," October 2007 "Anyone with a taste for reading about frantic production schedules and creative jury-rigging solutions will find much to enjoy in Ragone's text." -"Powell's Books.com," November 2007"
