In 2016, a new exhibit on the work of visionary director Guillermo del Toro opened at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), before moving on to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and the Minneapolis Museum of Art (MIA). This book was the perfect accompaniment to the exhibition, which focused on del Toro’s creative process, including the well-defined themes that he obsessively returns to in all his films, the journals in which he logs his ideas, and the vast and inspiring collection of art and pop culture ephemera that he has amassed at his private “man cave,” Bleak House.
Filled with imagery from the exhibit, including favorite pieces of art that del Toro has chosen for the exhibit, plus pertinent journal pages, this book by Del Toro and Guy Davis delves further into the director’s world through exclusive in-depth interviews and commentary from notable figures in the art world, delivering an engrossing look into the mind of one of the great creative visionaries of our time.
