Alice in Wonderland
(A Visual Companion)
by: Mark Salisbury
Think you know the classic story of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland? Think again. Renowned director and producer Tim Burton (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, James and the Giant Peach, Edward Scissorhands, Beatlejuice, Batman) has applied his signature stamp to this beloved tale, and will be sharing it with audiences in 2010! This splendid "Making/Art of" will take readers to the world behind Burton’s camera, revealing the secrets of performance-capture technology, the marriage of live-action and CGI technology, and displaying its singular style in a deluxe, artistic format.
This book is beautiful! The first thing I noticed when looking through it was the artwork and the stunning images. There are little surprises throughout the book as well, like the dust jacket that is also the oraculum and the images on the book themselves that are from the movie and from production images that make you smile.
It takes you through the history of Lewis Carroll and his Alice and shows you some of the illustrations in the book and then proceeds to show the "making of images" some of which I really want to copy and hang on my wall due to how pretty they are.
It takes you through the movie brilliantly and shows behind the scene images and production stills that make you smile.
While flipping through this book I'm taken by how much I wish this wonderland was real. The pictures are just so pretty and look so real that it almost pains me that I'll never be able to see it.
This is the perfect table top addition to anyone who loves Alice in Wonderland, or anyone who can appreciate the art that is film making.
