It’s the movie that revolutionized science fiction and the art of cinema, that transformed the way we think about film with its special effects, narrative style, philosophical importance, and unusual musical choices. Now, fifty years after its conception, TASCHEN presents the most exhaustive publication ever devoted to 2oo1: A Space Odyssey. Limited to 1,500 copies, this landmark edition has been made in exclusive collaboration with both the Kubrick Estate and Warner Bros.

Get closer than ever to this movie that changed the movies. Conceived by the same designers behind our instant collectible Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never Made, this richly illustrated four-volume set features hundreds of previously unpublished documents and photographs, as well as personal testimony from Kubrick’s co-screenwriter Arthur C. Clarke. All hardcover volumes are presented in a sleek metal slipcase inspired by the famous monolith, and come boxed with exclusive cover art from Wayne Haag.

  • “…Kubrick’s vision and idiosyncratic methods were too much for some of his crew (and the critics) to bear, yet the near-miraculous achievement has never been surpassed in its genre, and this book is a monument, both physically and in substance, to that end.”

    — Fortean Times, London
  • “The film’s closing sequence became a cultural ‘what's it all mean’ touchstone of the psychedelic 60s. But for your $ 750 price tag, the book published by TASCHEN doesn't solve that riddle either. It, like the movie, endures.”

    — CBS News, New York
  • “Cinephiles and Kubrick fans alike are sure to have a field day.”

  • “…the best book about 2OO1 that could have been written… an exclusive, detailed and ambitious look at everything to do with 2OO1.”

    — AMALGAMA Express, Barcelona
  • “It really is an achingly handsome collection of work, exquisitely designed, bound and printed… it’s a timely reminder of how captivating a piece of print can be.”

    — Den of Geek, London
  • “…more artefact than book.”

    — Empire, London
  • “Moon children, polka-dot aliens, suckling ape suits, and many more intergalactic wrong turns are chronicled in a new behind-the-scenes book… in what TASCHEN brags is ‘the most exhaustive publication ever devoted’ to the film. At four volumes and 1,386 pages, The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is indeed exhaustive… it is larded with previously unseen photos, documents, and production art taken from Kubrick’s archives… Mad is actually a good adjective here. So is magnificent.”

    — Vanity Fair, New York
  • “A crucial piece of film history… and a true pinnacle reference material and honorary text on one of the most important films in cinema history.”

    —, New York
