Masters of Make-Up Effects: A Century of Practical Magic

A lively, affectionate and candid oral history of iconic make-up effects, from the artists who create and apply them, to the actors who bring them to life, Masters of Make-up Effects is a glorious gathering of behind-the-scenes stories and incredible, candid photos, many of which have never been published before.  

Join Oscar-winning make-up effects artist Howard Berger and veteran film journalist Marshall Julius as they usher you onto the sets of cult classics (An American Werewolf in London, The Thing), award winners (Darkest Hour, The Shape of Water) and fan-favourite film and TV franchises (Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter), then into the make-up trailers of scores of industry legends as they regale with thrilling tales and share their histories, insights and inspirations.  

With a foreword from visionary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and an afterword by Seth MacFarlane, Masters of Make-up Effects is a revealing celebration of a century of iconic make-up magic.
