The Masters of Cinema Seriesare essential introductions to the world’s most renowned directors. Each book is written by contributors to the famous Cahiers du Cinéma magazine, and feature over a 100 images of film stills, set photographs, and posters — many of which have never been seen. Organized chronologically, film lovers can also read brief biographies, filmographies, and plot summaries of the director’s seminal works. Currently available for ten prestigious directors including: Spielberg, Eastwood, Lynch, and Coppola not shown above, for $10 a pop it’s worth considering picking up the whole set to diversify your library away from Tom Clancy. We’re sure many others are bound to be added to series at some point, but we have sneaking suspicion Michael Bay won’t be one of them.
