Tim Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre filmmaking, melding the fantastic, the horrific, and the comic. Accompanying Burton's first major museum retrospective, this book considers his career as an artist and filmmaker. It narrates the evolution of his creative practices, following the current of his visual imagination from his early childhood drawings through his mature work, and revealing how popular culture and Pop Surrealism have infused his distinctive vision. Reproducing not only film stills but drawings, paintings, photographs, and maquettes from both film and non-film projects, the book presents previously unseen works from Burton's personal archive and sheds new light on his singular aesthetic.
