Images shows the progression of Lynch's avant-garde style of filmmaking - from his very first short films, to his status as the ultimate cult director with Eraserhead, to the commercial successes of The Elephant Man and Blue Velvet and the creation of his television series Twin Peaks, which made it into - and forever altered - the mainstream. Much of the book, however, is composed of the images Lynch has kept to himself, and these are as fascinating and possibly more bizarre than any of his films. In addition to the stills from his movies, TV series, and theater work, are private, personal paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, short works of fiction, and organic art. This is the artwork David creates for himself and his closest friends: photographs of his unusual obsessions from spark plugs and industrial wastelands to dental surgery and bald women, suburban snowmen, and biological artwork, such as The Fish Kit.
