This original oil painting conceived by M/M Paris and executed by Wayne Haag is the one-of-a-kind artwork behind the metallic slipcase design of the Collector’s Edition The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s 2OO1 Space Odyssey
. With a portfolio including The Lord of the Rings
and Superman Returns
, Wayne Haag has made his name with vivid renderings of imaginative elements and environments. For TASCHEN’s Collector’s Edition, Haag depicts key elements of Kubrick’s masterwork, all enclosed within the number “2OO1” and rendered with both expert detailing and a suitably cinematic drama of light and shadow, color and darkness.
The painting is available for purchase, accompanied by Artist’s Proof #0001 of the Collector’s Edition
. Typically reserved only for the project artists and close collaborators of a publication, this AP edition is the most privileged acquisition available for this publication. Like all editions of this book, it is numbered and signed by Christiane Kubrick
. Together, the AP and artwork make an unrivaled investment in sci-fi artwork, in a landmark of design and print publishing, and in exclusive, authorized Kubrick memorabilia
