The book is well written and Ian Nathan has obviously done his research on each movie and the book takes you right up to present day covering 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.' There are some valuable tidbits for each movie, for example Tim Burton's inspiration for the look of 'Mar's Attack' came from a 1962 Topps trading card set inspire by 'War of the Worlds.' Burton said:
The book reminds of 'Spielberg: A Retrospective' by Richard Schnickel. That book also covers each movie, maybe not in the greatest detail just like this book but that's no bad thing. It's a book you can read for a few minutes each day while enjoying your breakfast and at the same time you will pick up the odd fact you may not have known before on Tim Burton and his iconic movies.
'I just loved the way they looked...I loved the naive quality of the original cards, and the style of painting is just beautiful.'
The book is currently priced at £19.99 on Amazon.co.uk and $30.85 on Amazon.com and would make a perfect gift for any movie fan.
