It is with great pleasure that I learned recently that Creepy-Images is publishing a new book about Paul Naschy. I am of the firm belief that far too little has been printed about El Hombre Lobo and his work so any new book would be a welcome addition to my bookshelf. And the subject of this tome is right up my alley and a true benefit to the work Troy & I have been doing on the podcast. I can hardly wait to get my hands on this book. I'll let their advertising copy clue you in to the contents---

"MUCHAS GRACIAS SEÑOR LOBO deals with the advertising material from the movies of one of the true icons of European horror movies: Paul Naschy and contains the largest collection of posters, lobby cards and other promotional items from his movies ever published.

MUCHAS GRACIAS SEÑOR LOBO focuses on Paul Naschy‘s horror movies of the late 1960s through the 1980s. 30 movies of this period will be featured in form of separate chapters in the main part of the book while advertising material from his non-horror-movies and his newer films will be compiled in an additional chapter.

Besides high quality reproduction of movie posters, lobby cards and other memorabilia items, the book contains details and insight into the distribution history of the movies and we are sure that some facts will even surprise the most dedicated fans of the Spanish Lon Chaney." 

Limited hardcover edition!

392 pages, completely in color, measuring 21 x 29,7 cm (approx. 8.3 x 11.7 inches)

More than 1.200 pictures, including more than 160 movie posters, almost 750 lobby cards, over 100 press stills, a large part of which have never been published yet, more than 100 reproductions of admats, rare sales material that was only handed out to distribution companies and much more from more than 20 different countries.

Introduction by Paul Naschy‘s son Sergio Molina!

Complete Text in German and English!

Besides the countless images the book also contains detailed information about distribution history of the movies.

This is clearly the best Naschy news of 2012 and shows that there is still a lot of interest (at least in Europe) in the great man. It will be published in a few weeks and it can be pre-ordered at this LINK. Its Christmas early this year for Naschy fans!
