Kirk's collection is broken up into genre (toys, posters, art etc.) and by the decade. They are represented quite well, great photos and each has a comment from Kirk himself about either how he came across the piece, its rarity or personal thoughts. There were alot of pieces that I had never seen before and as a horror fan myself, that was a real treat. It also introduced me to some classic films I have somehow missed along the way and alot of toys that I've never seen.
The interview with Kirk was a great edition, he talks about how he became an avid lover and collector of all things horror, why he is drawn to a particular decade or monster and his favorites, he also ties it into his music as well; you get to see all the guitars he had designed based on his favorite monster films.
This is a very nice book, you do not have to be a fan of Kirk's or Metallica's to enjoy this at all, as a matter of fact, this is about the other love in Kirk's life: Horror Business. So I would recommend this to a horror fan, a book lover, a collector of classic films and tv monsters. I was quite impressed with it overall.
A great book--and a great addition to any Horror collector's library!
I love horror SO much, I've performed as a zombie in flash mobs and Michael Jackson Thriller tributes.
This is a gorgeous book with super-cool toys, masks, vintage props, and beautiful movie poster art.
Kirk wrote all the captions himself, revealing the gleeful little boy side of him,
and his passion for these items is contagious.
What surprised me the most about the book, is that it's also an in-depth look into Kirk's inner psyche,
and if you're a hard-core fan of Kirk, and of Metallica's music, like me, you learn just how much inspiration his collection gives him as a musician, and it's really fascinating.
There's even more in his collection, that didn't make it into this book.
I also like his decision to have the book only available in hard copy...
Kirk wants the reader to have a tangible, physical experience with this lovely book.
I showed the book to my Dad one day, and my Dad poured over every single page, he really enjoyed it, too.
He's a semi-retired newspaper editor, and was really impressed with the quality of the book.
