Since arriving on bookshelves in 2010, the Master of Cinema series titles have worked introductions to the world’s most well known directors including Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg, Orson Wells, and Akira Kurosawa to name a few. Each volume is filled with interviews, biographies and a wide range of film stills and movie ephemera – many rarely seen outside these volumes.

The Master of Cinema series books pack nicely into around 100 pages each and sit as continuing volumes on your bookshelf. Forthcoming director volumes for 2012 include Michael Mann and Quentin Tarantino. Available from Amazon.
