Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters (Book out now)

I was just introduced to this brilliant book by author August Ragone via Myspace. The book features a comprehensive look at the genius Eiji Tsuburaya, the visionary who created Ultraman and Special Effects Wizard of the early Godzilla films. You may find the book at your local book store or Amazon. I'll be putting this on my Amazon wishlist for the holiday. Mark Nagata of Maxtoy is also featured in the book with his legendary collection of Ultraman toys. Here is a blurb from Chronicle Books.

"EIJI TSUBURAYA: MASTER OF MONSTERS is the first book on this legendary film figure in English, details the dynamic life and movie career of this legendary film figure, from his early fascination with with movies, aviation, and model building, to his work in the golden age of Japanese Cinema to the ingenious technical innovations that brought miniature worlds and fantastic characters vividly to life."
