If you’ve always found the art world to be something totally unrelated to you, this will not be the case with the artwork featured in Crazy 4 Cult 2. Published by Titan Books, who provided me with this copy for a review, Crazy 4 Cult 2 is a collection of cult film themed artwork from LA’s famous art gallery Gallery 1988. The book starts with an intro by Seth Rogen, after that, get ready to get lost in a world of beautiful artwork inspired by films like The Shining, Ghost Busters, Shaun of the Dead, The Big Lebowski, Edward Scissorhands, and many many more across 170 pages of the book…
It is important to note that this book is NOT about movie posters, but rather, original artwork that reflects an iconic character or a scene from a movie. That’s what makes it such an enjoyable book to browse, seeing some of your favorite cult films interpreted in a new way. And since probably many of us cannot afford to collect this huge collection of original artwork, it’s great to have these prints compiled in a single book.
Crazy 4 Cult 2 makes a wonderful coffee table book that is a MUST-HAVE for any film geek. It is thoroughly entertaining, the artwork is beautiful and will not disappoint. The book is available in two volumes.
