About the book

The Shining: A Visual and Cultural Haunting is an immersive, multi-dimensional examination of one of the most infamous films in cinematic history. This loose-leafed and beautifully boxed book — disguised as the writing project Jack is typing throughout the course of the film — explores the film’s cultural legacy through exclusive essays, original recollections and rare, exclusive interviews with lead actors Shelley Duvall (Wendy Torrance) and Dan Lloyd (Danny Torrance), along with a wealth of contributors including Cosey Fanni Tutti, Margaret Howell, James Lavelle (UNKLE), Gavin Turk and John Grindrod.
