It's a 176-page hardcover published by Titan Books.
The movies included are limited to just cult movies, depending on how you define cult. Some of them are Clerks, The Big Lebowski, Edward Scissorhands, Donnie Darko, The Shining, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory etc. Some titles are really obscure.
The art is essentially fan art, a collection a paintings and a few handmade figures. Some ideas are nice, some average. There's a variety of interesting style but overall, there's a strong lowbrow art feel to the book. Can't say that it's the style of art I like.
This book reminds me of Star Wars Art: Visions which is also sort of a cult movie book, but their selection is more refined, and quality is higher. By the way, there's no Star Wars art in Crazy 4 Cult except for some characters that appear as only as cameo.
This book is probably a fan service. I think you need to be a strong cult movie fan (who also likes art) to appreciate.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
When I finally got my hands on one, after waiting in an extremely chaotic line that kept being pushed to and fro by gallery visitors volleying for a better viewing spot of the artwork on the walls, I was jazzed to find out the book was only $35 - WAAAAAAY less than any print sold at Gallery 1988!
The book is printed on high-quality paper and the colors just pop! Each piece is showcased and resized so that every detail can be oo'ed and ah'ed over. I was so happy with the book and finally owning the pieces I could never afford to buy at the gallery, that I proudly showed off the book to everyone that dropped by my apartment that night. Even though most of my friends are too young to know most of the movie references, the artwork contained in this book's pages kept them entertained and led to a million questions about this movie or that.
I highly recommend buying this book to anyone who's loves cult movies and loves art. You won't regret it.
PS: Keep an eye out for a Fight Club inspired Calvin & Hobbes piece. It's my favorite :)
