Over fifty years ago, with the release of "The Curse of Frankenstein" and Christopher Lee's iconic performance in "Dracula", Hammer ushered in a whole new era of blood and barely-restrained cleavage in glorious colour, mixing sex and horror with a style and panache that made the small British company world famous. Bursting at the seams with rare and previously unpublished photographs from Hammer's archive and private collections worldwide, and featuring many new interviews, "Hammer Glamour" is a lavish, full colour celebration of Hammer's female stars, including Ingrid Pitt, Martine Beswick, Caroline Munro, Barbara Shelley, Joanna Lumley, Nastassja Kinski, and of course Raquel Welch (who can forget her fur bikini in "One Million Years B. C."?).
'The interviews are as revealing as the photography.'- The Independent on Sunday 'A fascinating trawl through the stuck-together pages of British horror history.'- Bizarre 'Hammer Glamour is a must for Hammer film fans'- Blog Critics 'Go ahead and order the book from Titan right away. Trust me, you won't regret it.'- All Things Horror 'A fabulous read... could well be the bible of British horror'- Empire 'A celebration in words and daring pictures of when fangs were fun.' - Mail on Sunday
