The Shape of Water Hardcover By Guillermo Del Toro & Daniel Kraus 

Visionary storyteller Guillermo del Toro and celebrated author Daniel Kraus combine their estimable talent in this haunting, heartbreaking love story.

The Shape of Water will be published as an adult novel. The novel itself will mirror, and expand upon, the material in the film — though will not be considered a tie-in novel for the movie. Illustrations by visual artist James Jean, who also provided the stunning poster art for the film, will feature throughout the novel.

The Shape of Water is set in Cold War-era Baltimore at the Occam Aerospace Research Center, which has recently received its most sensitive asset ever: an amphibious man captured in the Amazon. What unfolds is a stirring romance between the asset and one of the janitors on staff, a mute woman who uses sign language to communicate with the creature.

Developed from the ground up as a bold two-tiered release—one story interpreted by two artists in the independent mediums of literature and film—The Shape of Water weaves together fantasy, horror, and romance to create a tale that is equally gripping on the page and on the big screen.

Prepare for an experience unlike anything you’ve ever read or seen. The 320 page book will be released on February 27, 2018.
