Making 2oo1: A Space Odyssey

The launch at Childwickbury House

2014: On the evening of June 5, TASCHEN held the international launch for The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” at Childwickbury House in the Hertfordshire countryside. The house was not only Stanley’s home until he died but also his studio where many of his films were post-produced, and is still home to Christiane Kubrick, so it was a real pleasure and honour to be able to host the party in this stunning location.

To start the evening, press had the chance to speak to Christiane and her brother Jan Harlan, who produced most of Kubrick’s films, in the private library. Christiane welcomed everyone to her house and said that “Stanley would be overwhelmed by the guests, the book, and how well she had tidied up”.
