I love movies and I love reading about movies, especially books about the behind-the-scenes collaborative efforts of different departments in the making of movies. I’ve read books by and about directors, writers, producers, cinematographers, actors, editors, and costume designers. I’m pretty sure th Leggi tutto
A lovely look into a field in the movie industry that's often overlooked. If finer details and meticulous research for film sound intriguing I'd recommend this in a heartbeat. Fingers crossed she writes more in the future!
Really interesting look into graphic design for film - delightful to see traditional methods and the lengths Annie Atkins goes to for the smallest but important details. The cover is so beautiful too, a great addition to a designer's bookshelf.
I first found out about Annie Atkins while listening to a podcast and was blown away by her knowledge and work. When I realized that she had published a book in 2020 I had to purchase it! I love Annie's work and the detail that she puts into making props for films. This book is a must for film buffs Leggi tutto

This is a beautiful book brimming with images of many beautiful handmade artefacts, but don't make the mistake of thinking this is coffee table book. Before Annie Atkins became a specialist in making movie props for the likes of Stephen Spielberg and Wes Anderson, she was (and is) an amazing writer

As a film prop maker and graphic designer myself, this book is golden insight into a world I am relatively new to. I love Annies wit and humor, her pla Leggi tutto

This is a beautiful book cover to cover, worthy of the author's profession. I've gained a new appreciation for a craft that I hardly knew existed before. And learned a lot about history in the process! My only wish is that there was slightly more substance here. The vast majority of the text is desc Leggi tutto
I really enjoyed this. It’s more coffee-table than I had hoped but it was still wonderful and magically to see inside the prop design world. I really enjoyed the subtle nod to script edits with the coloured chapter pages. Photography is beautiful as well. I want to know so much more though. It would Leggi tutto
