Thought this would be an interesting gift full of interesting scribbles and thoughts from the director and a bit of a look into the bits of Del Toro's mind that didn't make it to screen. Instead it turns out the book was more of a fanboy gallery of trivia and other information from the various movies, and not many interesting/unexpected drawings. While still good as a gift, and a great value book for the price you pay, I'd have rathered something more personal and less generic memorabilia

A truly insightful and beautifully produced window into the mind of Guillermo del Toro. The book itself is large format and high quality in both print finish, paperweight and overflowing with both imagery of concept sketches, renders, on set behind the scenes candid shots and a wealth of info and inspiration in written word that will intrigue and entertain. Whether you've seen just one of his films, a handful of them, or are an epic fan and have seen them all, this book will not disappoint.

A fascinating insight into GdT on where he finds his inspiration, his obsession with colour palettes and his work on films. Basically its a film-biography, sort of, a look at GdT and his film/working life. Ideas from initial thought through to fruition in film.

What an interesting collection del Toro has, the book does a great job of showing off and describing the thought process he goes through when creating the worlds for his movies.

This is the best book in my book shelf by far. So interesting, full of Guillermos notes, scribbles, ideas and original artwork from many of his films. Fantastic, fascinating, and a wonderful insight into his mind.

My missus loves Del Toro and this glossy book was a nice, unusual gift for her. A great book to leave on the coffee table for guests to flick through. Great photos of his second house, his thinking space and full of collectables ... basically his man cave.

Beautifully illustrated book for del Toro fans and artists alike.
So glad that I purchased this and it helps with University studies too!
Couldn't find anything on del Toro at my local library, so this is an essential tool if studying art, surrealism etc.
Highly recommended...go buy it!

Bought this as a present for a friend into props and special effects makeup and she was thrilled with it. The book arrived still in plastic wrap and in excellent condition. It is a lovely coffee table book if you're looking for something a little bit unusual.

So interesting. Got it as part of a college project on monster design and it's a fascinating read.
