Strange, Beautiful Images from Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’

In the new book Cabinet of Curiosities (out now via Harper), visionary Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro presents — according to the volume’s subtitle — “My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions.” In other words, the books offers the rare opportunity for an all-access peek into the working methods of the acclaimed moviemaker. The lavishly illustrated coffee-table book pulls from Del Toro’s notebooks, drawings, journals, behind-the-scenes photos, and more. Preview a few of its remarkable pages below.

Chapter four of Show Your Work!: “Open up your cabinet of curiosities.”
