Take a trip through history with our beautiful hardback guide to the golden age of Universal monster movies. A Pictorial History of Universal Monsters Volume One: The Twenties and Thirties is the collector’s edition of this guide, in a strictly limited premium edition hardcover format – only 30 in the world – that comes signed by both authors in a presentation box with a FREE set of postcards and certificate of authenticity!


The horror movies produced by Universal during the 1920s and 30s were crucial in shaping our understanding of what a horror movie could be. They created the environment in which artists such as Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff could flourish, and became a turning point in the development of the modern motion picture.

In a stunning hardback publication, Classic Monsters celebrate the pioneering artistry of the golden age of Hollywood horror. With A Pictorial History of Universal Monsters Volume One: The Twenties and Thirties, authors Nige Burton and Jamie Jones explore the golden age monster films you love, examining each production on its own merits and as part of the wider story told by Universal’s horror movie output. Each lovingly written chapter is packed with information to capture the essence of the horror movies that played such a role in cinema history.

This first instalment of our upcoming series of horror movie compendium guides is designed and printed in vibrant full colour, packed with stills, posters and artwork printed to crystal clarity in a luxurious hardcover format. Even black and white images are given a richness and depth that you won’t find elsewhere, thanks to our exacting attention to detail and exhaustive restoration work.

From your favourite golden age classics, to the smaller-name pieces of art you might not know so well, this Universal horror movie hardback guide is a glorious tribute to the work of a studio who not only gave horror fans so much, but actually created those fans too. This unique publication is designed and produced to the absolute highest standard to give it pride of place in your classic horror movie hardback guide collection.

Collectors please note: the art print included with this hardback edition is different from that included with the softback edition.
