Win Pan’s Labyrinth – The Labyrinth of the Faun

July 11, 2019
Special Limited Edition Hardback up for grabs

The fantastic imagination of filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro has captured the world’s imagination, from the Oscar winning The Shape of Water, the thrills of Pacific Rim to his earlier work such as our faves Cronos and The Devil’s Backbone, but arguably his best work is 2006’s Pan’s Labyrinth.

Now comes the book, Pan’s Labyrinth – The Labyrinth of the Faun which expands upon GDT’s world, illustrating that fantasy is the sharpest tool to explore the terrors and miracles of the human heart.

You shouldn’t come in here. You could get lost. It has happened before. I’ll tell you the story one day, if you want to hear it. 

In fairy tales, there are men and there are wolves, there are beasts and dead parents, there are girls and forests.

Ofelia knows all this, like any young woman with a head full of stories. And she sees right away what the Capitán is, in his immaculate uniform, boots and gloves, smiling: a wolf.

But nothing can prepare her for the fevered reality of the Capitán’s eerie house, in the midst of a dense forest which conceals many things: half-remembered stories of lost babies; renegade resistance fighters hiding from the army; a labyrinth; beasts and fairies.

There is no one to keep Ofelia safe as the labyrinth beckons her into her own story, where the monstrous and the human are inextricable, where myths pulse with living blood …
