Product Description

From the Back Cover

Hollywood Sketchbook is the first volume published on costume design illustration for the movies. This groundbreaking book celebrates one hundred years of the costume designers' and costume illustrators' contributions to the art of cinematic storytelling. Costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis offers us a unique perspective on the art and importance of the costume drawing. During her years of practice and research, Professor Landis has discovered a wealth of never-before-seen original sketches, published here for the first time, along with a comprehensive array of first-person anecdotes from collectors, archivists, illustrators, and designers. Whether the film, costume designer, or star was significant or successful did not factor into the criteria for choosing the sketches in this book. Every drawing had a chance to be included on its own merit as a work of art. Featuring a comprehensive introduction that contextualizes the rigors of costume design and a filmography that details the career highlights of each artist, Hollywood Sketchbook is the perfect gift for any lover of fine art, costume design, and the movies.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An exceptional book, filled with beautiful colour illustrations. A bit thin on individual designers bio's, but it certainly makes up with an archive of sketches and drawings.
If you interested in film, design, and or fashion this is a must have.

An overall interesting book for costume design lovers!

An *strictly personal* "but", though, I love pre-1960s film costume design, which I considert its golden era, and I feel there was too much of the post-1970 sketches, which I personally consider rather uninteresting, all the more compared with the sheer clory of what went before: Still, this is really no real ground to complaint as the very title states that it covers 100 years of it.

In short: Good book, but if you are more fond of classic film costume design, be aware that it's only about 50% of the contents.
