Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ape of a Book! Beautiful illustrated book about one of the most fascinating series ever to come out of Hollywood. The fact that the Planet of the Apes is still going strong with another movie in the works is testament to appeal across generations. The book had crisp overviews and rare photos of the series spanning the original movies, the television series and the remakes. Great addition for any collectors.
