Godzilla: The Ultimate illustrated Guide unites fascinating information and stunning imagery from more than 60 years of movie mayhem to show off the Earth's most enduring monster as never before.
This book is the ultimate illustrated reference work to all things Godzilla, from the early days in black and white in Japan to the biggest blockbusters of the 21st century. Never before has a work united the full gamut of Godzilla incarnations. Facts and figures, actors and locations, co-starring monsters and plenty of superb illustrated material add up to make this a rampaging beast of a book![1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite its cover, Amazon lists the book under the title "Godzilla: The Ultimate Illustrated Guide" in both the United States and United Kingdom.[1][3]
  • The book's cover uses altered poster art from Shin Godzilla. Along with the addition of cracks on the image, Godzilla's eye has been completely removed.
  • This will mark the first official English-language encyclopedic book about the Godzilla franchise since Random House's The Official Godzilla Compendium from 1998.
  • This book opts to refer to the original Godzilla by the romaji of its Japanese title, Gojira, instead of by its international English title. Classic Media had previously released the film to DVD and Blu-ray in North America under this title.
