Zombies! An Illustrated History of the Undead
Editors Jovanka Vuckovic | Publisher Ilex| Price £18 | Available Now
You may be able to guess the subject matter of this book from its title, but you’ll be hard pressed to predict the sheer scale of zombie love that’s found within. Pooling zombie art and photos from films and books, Zombies! is an undead treasure trove.
Looking back further than George A Romero’s Night of the Living Dead to zombie roots in both Haitian voodoo and 19th century literature, this book charts the slow, putrid rise of the zombie genre in microscopic detail.
Updated to include films such as Zombieland and [Rec], and with a foreword from the modern master Romero himself, this is a decent overview of the eternally popular horror characters.
