In addition, he is the longest-serving trustee of the V&A, and chairman of the Royal Mint Advisory Committee, which selects the designs for new coins. Frayling is well known as a historian, critic and a award-winning broadcaster. He has published 17 books and numerous articles on contemporary art, design, film and the history of ideas, most recently Frankenstein: The First Two Hundred Years.


The movies may not be getting bigger than ever, but the books on them most definitely are, starting with Christopher Frayling's pleasantly massive "Once Upon a Time in the West: Shooting a Masterpiece."--Kenneth Turan "Los Angeles Times "
"Once Upon a Time in the West: Shooting a Masterpiece" [...] will tell you just about everything you want to know about the Italian director Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti western.--Kenneth Dickerman "Washington Post "
A beautiful, handsome tome as beautiful in pictures as it is in prose.--Jason Solomons "BBC Radio London "
Behind the scenes of the greatest Western ever made.--Editorial "The Telegraph "
Frayling, the world's leading Leone expert, has amassed photographs, posters, production sketches and more, and Leone fan Quentin Tarantino has written the introduction to this impressive volume.--Kenneth Turan "Los Angeles Times "
For a film that turned 50 this year, its hard to imagine a better birthday gift than this superb all adds up to a remarkably thorough exploration of both the production and the man who masterminded it...This is the definitive account of the making and legacy of Leone's epic. Highly recommended.--Anton Van Beek "Home Cinema Choice "
This sumptuously produced book is both a fine tribute to Sergio Leone's 1968 masterpiece and an insightful look at how a piece of cinema can gather an almost mythic reputation in the half-century since it was produced...[The text is] scrupulously researched and consistently surprising.--Alexander Larman "The Observer "
A massive and gorgeous book about Sergio Leone's landmark Spaghetti Western.--Matthew Sweet "BBC Radio 3 'Free Thinking' "
Frayling's own masterpiece... a book for the ages about making a movie for the ages. This is the coffe table book you will actually want to pick up and read.--Rhett Fisher "Trebuchet Magazine "
A widescreen book for a widescreen classic, Frayling collates a staggering amount of material.--Matt Glasby "Total Film "
Frayling is unquestionably the world's leading authority on the definitive director of Spaghetti Westerns, and its hardly cause for argument to say the book turns out like an absolute treat - and, yes, definitive...Frayling's text is both authoritative and accessible, with no stone unturned...--Barry Forshaw "DVD Choice "
