Blacksparrow is proud to present The Illustrated History of Don Post Studios by Lee Lambert.
This comprehensive tome details the history of Don Post Studios from its inception in 1938 through to its closure in 2012. This was the company responsible for the creation of the rubber Halloween mask and it was at the forefront of the “Monster Kid” phenomenon of the 1960s and 70s. Don Post Studios was a leader in the Halloween Industry for over 7 decades and also dabbled in special effects work for the film industry from 1947 through 1988.
At almost 600 pages and measuring 9″ x 12″, this is a true anthology and definitive guide to Don Post Studios, the company that transformed an entire genre.
This edition comes with a special limited custom collector slipcase featuring a latex cover of the Glenn Strange Frankenstein relief mask. The Don Post Studios Tor Johnson masked released in the 1970s was DPS’s best selling mask ever. It is a fitting tribute to this monster caliber book. This sculpt and pull for this special slipcase was accomplished by the supremely talented Greg Duffy and Creature Revenge Studios.
