Book Review - Crazy 4 Cult 2: Cult Movie Art

Second volume of cult movie art from L.A's Gallery 1988.






Since its opening in 2004, Los Angeles' Gallery 1988 has been the world's premier pop culture art gallery. Much of the artwork hanging on its walls is movie based and one of the biggest attractions is the annual "Crazy 4 Cult" exhibit, where artwork inspired by cult movie and TV titles attracts thousands of visitors. Film-makers like Guillermo del Toro, JJ Abrams and Joss Whedon have been known to snap up artwork based on their favorite movies and TV shows.
A couple of years ago, the highlights of the first four annual exhibitions were collected in a book, published by Titan Books, and now a second volume has been released.
If you're a movie geek, you'll likely find the images contained within fascinating and I've included a few of my favorites from the book below.
This is a book every cult movie lover will want on their coffee table.
If you can't find it in your local bookstore, 'Crazy 4 Cult 2' is available directly from www.titanbooks.com
