To say that Mexican director Guillermo del Toro is an amazing and impressive artist would be an understatement; he is a visionary, and the proof lies in the mind-blowing plotlines and visuals he created for Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, Hellboy, Mama, and many other films he wrote and directed.

The esteemed director has just launched a fascinating coffee table book entitled Cabinet of Curiosities, inviting us to rummage through his “Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions.”

Here are just some of those beautiful sketchbook pages we will find in the book:
