Hello, HAL

On the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey
Get closer than ever to the movie that changed the movies. This behind-the-scenes spectacular of 2001: A Space Odyssey sheds light on the lead actors, senior production designers, special-effects experts and masterminds of Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, who together revolutionized science fiction and the art of cinema.

Previously available as part of the multi-volume and instant sell-out Collector's Edition, this comprehensive visual record includes on and off set photographs, pre-production paintings, and conceptual designs from the Kubrick archives. These dazzling images offer insight both into Kubrick's meticulous directorial methods, and into the mysteries and magnetism of a film at once vast in scope and intricate in its exploration of our relationship to technology.

Written and researched over several years by the outer space, special effects, and technology journalist Piers Bizony, this compendium is both an exhaustive labour of love and a monument to a masterpiece of 20th century culture.

Dieses sehr interessante und informative Buch zeigt, warum der Film so einzigartig ist.

Ein dem Film sehr würdiges Buch

Benjamin, October 29, 2021
Der TASCHEN-Verlag hat hier ein wunderbares Buch von Piers Bizony veröffentlicht. Auffällig ist schon einmal das eigenwillige Format dieses bildgewaltigen Werkes. Wie üblich ist die Qualität des verwendeten Materials, des Drucks und der Bindung sehr hochwertig. Auch inhaltlich hat das Buch sehr viel zu bieten. In 9 Kapiteln wird die Entstehung des Films mithilfe vieler Fotos und Hintergrundinformationen beschrieben. Sehr empfehlenswert, nicht nur für Fans des Films!

Nicht nur für Kubrick-Fans

Michael, October 27, 2021
Ein absolut tolles und umfangreiches Buch für alle Film-Fans :-)
