Have you every watched one of Guillermo Del Toro's films and wanted to know exactly what kind of a mind could come up with these films? Whether it be CRONOS or MIMIC or the amazing PAN'S LABYRINTH, Guillermo Del Toro is a unique filmmaker with a very distinct visual style. Unless you are lucky enough to know the man and talk with him at length about movies, you probably don't know much about the method to his madness. Now, you can find out simply by purchasing this amazing new book titled GUILLERMO DEL TORO: CABINET OF CURIOSITIES.

The $60 book is an awesome recreation of Del Toro's personal notebooks covering his films and ideas that never made it to the big screen. It even features contributions from other famous folks like James Cameron, John Landis, Tom Cruise, Alfonso Cuaron, Neil Gaiman, and more.

The next section of the book, entitled Collections, takes readers on a tour of Bleak House, del Toros second home and working office, his artistic masterpiece, his cluttered attic, his pride and joy. Its where he goes to draw and write, to recharge his batteries, to explore unfettered his creative whims. From there, del Toro, in a series of one-on-one interviews with Zicree that are woven throughout the book, discusses his graphic inspirations, film analysis, storytelling, his mainstays of horror, his idea incubators, and so much more, all alongside vibrant full-color images of the things that have inspired his unique art.

The next half of the book contains faithful reproductions of del Toros most elaborate illustrated notebooks. Accompanying this rich mixture of imagery, narrative explorations, and notes are further one-on-one discussions with Zicree about each of del Toros films, translations of del Toros personal blend of Spanish and English, as well as additional annotations which further elucidate the ideas and contexts that gave rise to them.

This book is a must have for all film geeks as it offers something we rarely get to see: the inner workings of one of the great cinematic artists working today. And hey, they even have a trailer for it. Check it out below.

CABINET OF CURIOSITIES hits stores on October 29th, just in time for Halloween!
