Director Guillermo Del Toro is moving into publishing with the release of an illustrated book adapted from his private journals. The Pan's Labyrinth filmmaker will release Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions on 29 October (13). The tome will give fans an insight into Del Toro's musings and creative streak through his scrawlings and drawings. Titanic director James Cameron has penned the foreword for the books, and writes, "He sees with the wonder and stark terror of a child. "His notebooks are a map of the subconscious, and his films (are) doorways into the dungeons of our dreams, allowing us to confront our own individual hearts of darkness, to do battle and emerge victorious." Earlier this year (13), Del Toro revealed how he was thrown into a panic after leaving his beloved notebook in the back of a London taxi. The driver later returned the pad and was handed a huge tip.
