FAB Press was formed by Harvey Fenton in 1993 with the publication of the first issue of Flesh & Blood magazine. By 1995 the magazine was established internationally as one of the major forces in the cult cinema press arena. Having published other magazine titles, including Diabolik and Eyeball, FAB Press unleashed its first book in 1997. Wes Craven's Last House on the Left was a success both critically (three Book of the Month awards upon publication) and commercially, and its success laid the foundations for the steady expansion of FAB Press into the 21st Century, at all times maintaining the primary aim of producing informative and lavishly illustrated cinema books.
FAB Press is a fiercely independent publishing house, dedicated to producing illustrated books of the highest possible quality. Unburdened by the constraints of larger book publishing concerns, FAB Press is willing and able to go the extra mile in giving the most marginal of subjects the sort of treatment usually reserved for only the most commercial mainstream subjects. Harvey has been collecting illustrated cinema books since he was 10 years old, and is convinced that it was inevitable that he would end up publishing them.
