Another amazing Taschen book...

The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s '2001: A Space Odyssey'
by Piers Bizony

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 "2001: 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"Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never Made," this richly illustrated four-volume set features hundreds of previously unpublished documents and photographs, as well as personal testimony from Kubrick's co-screenwriter Arthur C. Clarke.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.

Four hardcover volumes with a metal slipcase, all designed by M/M (Paris):

  • Volume 1: Film stills
  • Volume 2: Behind the scenes (including new interviews with lead actors, senior production designers, and key special-effects experts)
  • Volume 3: Facsimile of original screenplay
  • Volume 4: Facsimile of original 1965 production notes
Plus a small comic surprise.

Limited to a total of 1,500 copies: Art Edition No 1-500 (Art Edition A and B, with a signed print by Brian Sanders) and Collector's Edition No. 501-1,500.

Leaping lizards, I just looked it up. That's the most expensive new book I've ever seen!

Then you haven't seen many Taschen books. A number of their collector editions run into the five figures.
Taschen has published one of the most expensive books in publishing history, the $15,000, 75 pound, 700 page GOAT (Greatest of All Time), a tribute to the American boxer Muhammad Ali which Der Spiegel called "the biggest, heaviest, most radiant thing ever printed in the history of civilization." They have also published the $15,000 Helmut Newton retrospective Sumo and a $4,000 limited edition Araki volume.

Well, all I can say is if they ever do a limited edition on the making of "Apollo 13" that they better include an autographed photo of Lovell or Haise AND a flown artifact thrown in for good measure.

And don't forget that Taschen managed to come up with "Moonfire: The Epic Journey of Apollo 11" for just $40! Something that still baffles me. Maybe they will come up with a version affordable for the rest of us, not just the few.

Piers Bizony already did an affordable book on the making of 2001, which was released in 2000 if memory serves. Those are quite affordable and well worth the money.

It is the difference between collector and open editions.

The lower cost "Moonfire," while very nice, was printed on lower quality paper with a lower quality print and in smaller format than the collector's edition. The latter also included its own display box and a Buzz Aldrin autographed photo.

Considering their book on Kubrick's Napoleon originally retailed for $3000 and can be had on Amazon for $270 new, I'm guessing that this will eventually be available for much less than the issue price.
