Hi there! My name is Vanessa and I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I’ve been a book nerd all my life – I always used to get into trouble when my parents saw me pull out a book or Archie comic at a family wedding – and I love collecting (and reading, obviously) classic film books.

Speaking of classic film, that’s my other great passion in life (aside from reading, of course). My aunt Grace introduced me to old movies when I was six years old, starting me off with THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939) and DRACULA (1931). Both of those films remain two of my all-time favourites to this day! I especially enjoy watching pre-Codes, noirs, musicals, and screwball comedies.

If you’d like to contact me, please feel free to email me at vanessabuttino@gmail.com – I’d love to hear from you!
