More About the Author

I make things up and write them down. Which takes us from comics (like SANDMAN) to novels (like ANANSI BOYS and AMERICAN GODS) to short stories (some are collected in SMOKE AND MIRRORS) and to occasionally movies (like Dave McKean's MIRRORMASK or the NEVERWHERE TV series, or my own short film A SHORT FILM ABOUT JOHN BOLTON).

In my spare time I read and sleep and eat and try to keep the blog at www.neilgaiman.com more or less up to date.

Format: Hardcover
Length: 0:25 Mins
This book contains a stunning collection of collages by Dave Mckean. Every piece of collage is showcase of creativity and fantasy. The pages are visually saturated from the cover to the last page, a feast for the eyes.

The premise of the book is on the production of the movie Mirrormask. It talks about the production of the movie exclusively. Very little is mentioned about the story, which is not a problem if you have watched the movie.

The thing with collages is, they are typically filled with great textures. This book is no different. It is through the textures of these collages that give this book so much depth.

I felt there could have been more write up on the making of the movie. But this book is essentially 5 stars for the art displayed.

I have often purchased these companion books to films I really like. After I finally rented MirrorMask and loved the design I figured this book would be worth owning, so I ordered it along with the DVD and the soundtrack. I am not disappointed, the quality of this book is amazing and truly "lavish". The comments along with the design and photos really help explain what the creators were thinking of for the film.

This book turned out to be fantastic. To be honest I was looking for a book that showcased the artwork of MirrorMask and while this book did offer some of the artwork it offered so much more information about the whole movie itself including information on the artwork which was drawn by Ian Miller. It is a wealth of information on a wonderful movie. My daughter (who still sleeps in my bed) calls it our sleepy time movie and we watch it every night. I'm still not tired of it. Love the book.
