Books I think about while at the BEA Part 1
i think the title says it all: "Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon" The Greatest Movie Never Made." This is something so fantastic, that I want to stay alive at least till this book comes out this fall. This is the ultimate obsessive book on Kubrick with respect to his research and thoughts on a film he never made. Documentation, the script, his notes, landscape photos, costumes, you name it and it's all in this incredible book. I saw parts of it at the Taschen office, and it's superb. Really superb.
Emilio Pucci, the out there designer of designers in a beautiful designed format. Italian go-go with the the brightest colors on this planet. Beautiful, beautiful, and beautiful.
A limited edition of Dennis Hopper's photographs. I saw a version of this at the Taschen Soho office, and its amazing.
Alex Steinweiss is the god-like genius with respect to album covers. My mouth was watering, and it's a limited edition of 1,500 copies.
