For those of you searching for a gift for films of fantasy films  I have the perfect suggestion. “MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN – The Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda”  is a new book that has just been released.  The book  focuses on the the films of Ishiro Honda, the creator of such classic films as Rodan, Mothra, Attack of the Mushroom People and the original Godzilla!
Here is the press release:

For the first time in America, a book has been published on Japan’s foremost director of Fantasy Films: “MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN – The Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda” (AuthorHouse, ISBN: 978-1-4490-2771-1).
 
Known primarily for directing such classic Japanese monster movies as RodanMothraAttack of the Mushroom People and the original Godzilla, Honda has been a much-overlooked figure in mainstream international cinema.
 
MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN is the first book to cover in English print Honda’s life as well comprehensively evaluates all 25 of his fantasy films.  It is also gives objective and critical analysis of Honda’s filmmaking methods, themes and relationships with actors and technicians.
 
Making use of extensive interviews from Honda’s colleagues, as well as a wealth of original source material never before gathered into one volume (including previously-unpublished essays), MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN is an affectionate tribute to the most-prolific and influential director in the history of fantasy films.
