Mark Yon, September Want to Read Currently Reading Read. This book probably won’t be of much interest to someone who doesn’t care about del Toro, doesn’t care about movies, doesn’t care about notebooks, or doesn’t care about collections or the creative process or artistic endeavors or anything – to which I say you sound incredibly boring.

He explains the significance of some of the items and shows a bit of his creative process. I wish there had been more photographs from Bleak House, because I just want to live there. Mucho que aprender de este genio.

Then again, I’m a curiositirs, lo-fi type who prefers the ghost to the printer’s proof, the contact sheet to the framed cainet matted print, guilermo, stains, shitty recordings, broken people. This book is for fans of Guillermo del Toro, and those who wish to find out more about what his thinking process is while he is gathering ideas for his films.

Leave this field blank. But this compulsively readable and gorgeously designed book ended up enhancing my appreciation for his particular kind of genius many times over. Just a cool, weird dude.

I have had a deep and abiding love for Guillermo del Toro ‘s work ever since seeing Blade II and my admiration for the man as a director has only increased after seeing both the Hellboy movies and Pan’s Labyrinth arguably one of the greatest pieces of cinema ever committed to film! The interview between del Toro and Marc Scott Zicree that make up the main body of the book is fascinating and gives us an idea of what makes del Toro the man and the director tick.

Refresh and try again.
