Tom Savini announced earlier this year that a gigantic coffee table photo biography celebrating his career was on the way, and today we've got the official release date and details!
From growing up as a "Monster Kid" in Pittsburgh to creating the iconic effects in Dawn of the Dead, Friday the 13th, Creepshow, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2, and Maniac to acting in and directing projects like From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror, Night of the Living Dead (1990), and "Tales from the Darkside", Tom Savini’s legendary career is told in astonishing detail for the first time ever in this official biography, titled Savini, which is set to be released on his birthday, November 3rd, 2019.
With over 425 color photos, dozens never seen before, from his life and films, the beautiful hardcover book with glossy pages is every horror collector’s Holy Grail. Told in Tom’s unique own voice, the book reads as if Tom is speaking directly to the reader. Tom himself spent countless hours making sure every single word, sentence and picture in the book was exactly how and where he wanted.
The Limited First Edition Coffee Table Version of Savini: The Biography is limited to 1,013 copies and only available direct from Dark Ink, the company that released Kane Hodder’s biography, Unmasked, as well as dozens of other horror-themed titles including Tom’s very own classic "How To" book, Grande Illusions: Books I & II. Signed editions are also available.
