Cool Item Of the Week: Jim Gresham's What Music They Make hardcover book (which is Children of the Night, Part II)

Return to Cool Item of the Week Archive
Added: 02/27/2018

As many of you know, I, Bruce Hershenson, owner of, have collected pressbooks (and related movie paper like studio yearbooks) for over 30 years, and I have the world's foremost collection of such material. I thought I would share one item with you each week, the type of items you almost surely have never seen before, and which might not come up for sale for DECADES!

But this week, I do NOT have a pressbook, because instead I want to tell you about the wonderful brand new hardcover book, "What Music They Make" by James A. Gresham (which is Children of the Night, Part II).

You may well no that Jim Gresham's earlier book, Children of the Night, is an incredible hardcover book published in 2008, that depicted a high percentage of the 1930s and 1940s Universal horror posters known at that time, all in full-color!

In 2011 Jim published a second book, They're Here Already!, which gave a similar coverage to 1950s horror/sci-fi. But by 2018, ten years after Children of the Night was published, Jim found that he had accumulated enough new images of items that had not appeared in the 2008 volume that he could publish a sequel, and it is now available!

Here are several images from the new book, "What Music They Make", including the covers:


This amazing book retails for $129.99, and it is worth every penny! Want to buy a copy? Send us an email and we'll put you in touch with Jim (if you buy it directly from Jim, he will get all the money, so please do that rather than buy it from a bookseller)!

Next week I will resume showcasing a different pressbook (or related item) from my collection (so in just 25,000 weeks or so, I will have shared the entire collection with you!).
