The National Galleries of Scotland (NGS) book
Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema by
Vanessa Harryhausen has won the 'Book of the Year' Award in the
Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards. This is an award voted for by
fans across the globe and the awards honour the best in research,
creativity and film preservation. An impressive physical award will
make it to Scotland soon!
NGS are particularly pleased that the book - which is by a
first-time author and their own first book in this field - has been
selected by dedicated fans across the world from a formidable list
of titles by publishers and authors who are already very
well-established in this genre.
You can now also visit the exhibition at NGS Modern Gallery Two in Edinburgh until 20
February 2022 (booking required).
Other winners at the Rondo Awards included the modern remake of
The Invisible Man (voted Best Film), The Mandalorian (picked for a
second year as Best Television Show), and George Pal's 1953 epic,
War of the Worlds (Best Blu-Ray and restoration).
