    Anniversary Edition - 1st printing. Edited by Alison Castle. Finally available again, in a special anniversary edition! The first book to explore Stanley Kubrick's archives and the most comprehensive study of the filmmaker to date is divided into 2 parts. In 1968, when Stanley Kubrick was asked to comment on the metaphysical significance of 2001: A Space Odyssey, he replied: "It's not a message I ever intended to convey in words. 2001 is a nonverbal experience....I tried to create a visual experience." The philosophy behind Part 1 borrows from this line of thinking: from the opening sequence of Killer's Kiss to the final frames of Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick's complete films will be presented chronologically and wordlessly via frame enlargements. A completely nonverbal experience. Then, divided into chapters chronologically by film, Part 2 brings to life the creative process of Kubrick's filmmaking by presenting a remarkable collection of material from his archives, including photographs, props, posters, artwork, set designs, sketches, correspondence, documents, screenplays, drafts, notes, and shooting schedules. Hardcover (Horizontal Format), 12 1/2-in. x 9 1/2-in., PC/PB&W. Cover price $70.00.
