"The making of this book has been something of an odyssey: two years of traveling through time and space to the heart of Stanley Kubrick's universe, where I not only had the unprecedented privilege of having access to his archives, but also the invaluable guidance of those who were closest to him. Endeavoring to uncover each and every artifact that could cast light upon Kubrick's creative process, I scoured the archives, gathering the most illuminating items, from bits of paper covered with hurriedly scribbled notes to photographs taken by Kubrick on the sets of his films.

Overview

The first book to explore Stanley Kubrick's archives is also the most comprehensive study of the filmmaker to date Part 1: The films 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, one that bypasses verbalized pigeonholing and directly penetrates the subconscious with an emotional and philosophic content.? The philosophy behind Part I 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. Part 2: The Creative Process 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. Accompanying the visual material are essays by noted Kubrick scholars, articles written by and about Kubrick, and a selection of Kubrick's best interviews. Special features—Part 1 features 800 film stills scanned directly from the original prints and interpositives—Part 2 presents about 800 items from the archives, most of which have never been published before—essays by Kubrick scholars Gene D. Phillips, Michel Ciment, and Rodney Hill—selected articles and essays, including interviews with and essays by Stanley Kubrick—illustrated Kubrickchronology—audio CD featuring a 70-minute 1966 interview of Stanley Kubrick by Jeremy Bernstein **BONUS**—books in the first print run will each include a twelve-frame film strip from a 70mm print of 2001: A Space Odyssey owned by Stanley Kubrick Made in cooperation with Jan Harlan, Christiane Kubrick, and the Stanley Kubrick Estate. The editor: Alison Castle received a BA in philosophy from Columbia University and an MA in photography and film from New York University (NYU/International Center of Photography masters program). Castle also edited TASCHEN's Some Like it Hot. She lives in Paris, home of the world's best cinemas.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The ultimate homage to legendary film directory Stanley Kubrick, this large-format book explores his cinematic universe in exquisite detail, with oversized stills that chronicle the development of each film. A wide selection of other material from the Kubrick archives, from props to studies for scripts, illuminates his creative process, enhanced by commentary from Kubrick scholars and excerpts from interviews with the director. As is usually the case with Taschen publications, the book in itself is a work of art with respect to design and execution.

    'Dave, I think you should buy this book.'

    This book is the ultimate homage to Kubrick and his work. I hesitated buying it at first because of the price, but finally just decided to get it. I was not disappointed. It's not a book that you'll finish in one sitting. If you love Kubrick's work like myself, then you'll enjoy reading the articles and looking at the behind the scenes footage. The 70mm film strip that it comes with is also very cool. I was worried I wouldn't get a film strip with mine, since I ordered it in November, but mine came with one. It is the scene of the flight attendants (actually close to the picture on Imdb.com of the flight attendant serving the other one who is watching TV). I was hoping for frames with HAL, Dave, or the bone being thrown up, but at least I got one. I think BN.com also has one of the best prices and free shipping.

    An incredible treasure you must have!

    This collection was a complete revelation for me. Far and away the most complete collection on the great man's work I've ever seen.Each page is a breath taking, awe inspiring jewel!This book just affirms my opinion that SK was an intellectual giant of the 20th century whose work will be appreciated for centuries to come. AND It comes with 12 frames of the greatest film ever made 2001! You must get this absolutely if you appreciate SK's work this book will treasured for many years. It weighs a ton though!
