The Dark Pages

I wanted to take a quick detour from Dave's excellent Noir of the Week to mention a book that's coming out soon.

The Dark Pages
is a thick full-color book showing covers of first edition hard-boiled books many of which were later made into classic film noir. The book is set for release in November.

The Dark Pages can be pre ordered here:

Also, right now they're offering a very nice limited edition. This limited, slip-cased edition of the book, one of 100 copies, is signed by author Kevin Johnson and Paul Schrader (who contributes the foreword to the book). About 25 copies remain available for pre-order. It will be sold out in a week or less.

If you're a book and film fan like myself this looks like one you'll probably want to jump on.

Check out how this cover for Phantom Lady perfectly matches the film:

Back to our film. Don't miss the write-up on Detour this week!
