BLAZING MAGNUMS Italian Crime book
« on: 28 Aug 2007 - 18:30 »



I am sure everybody here knows about this excellent book already but I thought it should have its own thread. Needless to say it is a must for any fan of the genre. Can't wait for vol.2!

A great little book with lots of information and pics despite it's small size. I had to track down Ricco and Bloody Friday after reading the reviews in it. The Ricco review was by Jonny, right? Nice one man  ;) A great review with plenty detail.
It's cool that it's got bio's for Di Leo, Merli, Martino,etc as well as the reviews, like i say lotsa info.

Is there gonna be a vol.2 ?

I lent a load of sleeves for the first one and was given 4 copies of it for my trouble.

I can't tell if you're annoyed or chuffed about that.

I'm still thinking about it! I'm still picking up Crime on VHS for the sleeve art and even though nothing's been mentioned for ages it's still in my mind. Just been so busy over the summer.

Well, this seems to be an interesting item, in particular because it's in full color.
How many pages does it have and what kind of approach was chosen to the movies?
Filmographic, academic, descriptive, impressive, critcial ...?

I tried the order link, but it doesn't work, unfortunately.

Yeah, the main site is down for the moment. I'm having a bit of a tidy up, will be back soon. I have some copies left though, you can pick one up cheap via the link in my signature or PM me for details.

Haven't got a copy to hand at the moment so I can't tell you the page count. It's around 40/50 pages if I remember right. Loads of colour pictures of posters/VHS covers etc. Nicely written nothing to scholarly though.

It's 44 pages including the front and back cover. Beautiful layout on this one and pretty much identical to the new Castellari booklet. Both are must haves.

Managed to get a copy of this and Giallo Scrapbook from MrMedia on Ebay.

Both very nice to look at and hopefully the latter will lead me into buying a few giallo's which is virtually new territory to me.  ::)
