BOOK REVIEW: Johnny Depp – The Illustrated Biography
Author: Nick Johnstone
Publisher: Carlton Books
Release Date: March 2011
Johnny Depp's extraordinary journey has taken him from schoolboy misfit and bad-boy celebrity to compelling Oscar®-nominated actor and family man whose films have grossed over $4.7 billion worldwide. This lavish celebration of his art and life is fully updated to include Depp's most recent roles: the demon barber of Fleet Street in Sweeney Todd, his further outings as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.
Johnny Depp The Illustrated Biography is a great book for any fan of Mr Depp. It is packed full of plenty of photos and information about the famous and versatile actor. I think just about everyone has a favourite movie that Depp has stared in, and this book would probably have a picture from your favourite flick to.
There is some interesting pieces of history about the many people Depp has worked with over a long career. I found the many chapters of his acting life quite fascinating and interesting.
