Only so much can be written about classic horror film cinema, so Midnight Marquee Press decided
to start a brand new series, the CLASSIC HORROR MOVIE SCRAPBOOK, which will document horror movies
by the decade, but document them GRAPHICALLY. We have culled and assembled hordes
of original newspaper clippings, ads, articles, photographs, ballyhoo of classic horror movies from
the time of their original release. We have not only researched newspaper archives but also the databases
of Hollywood fan magazines and other available resources to try to come up with seldom seen grahpics
associated with horror film classics.
Our first edition covers half of the classic horror movies from the 1930s, and our second volume will
conclude the decade before moving on to a multi-volume set of the classic horror movies from the 1940s.
The look of the entire series will be similar to a fan who may have lived during the decade under discussion, who clipped
out articles, movie ads, ballyhoo and other reference pieces and pasted them into a large scrapbook, to savor them
for a lifetime of enjoyment.
Midnight Marquee's CLASSIC HORROR MOVIE SCRAPBOOK 1930s (Vol. 1) is now shipping. It is 268 pages,
8.5 x 11 inches in size and carries a cover price of only $25. But on our website http://www.midmar.com (column 3, middle) we will
be selling copies for only $18 (plus shipping).
Below are sample pages from the edition. Remember, each movie covered occupies anywhere from 8 to 14 pages of
nostalgia graphic design. We feel this new series will strike an emotional bell with Monster Kids everywhere!
