Product description

Synopsis

From award-winning illustrator McKean and "New York Times" bestseller Gaiman comes a lavishly illustrated look at the making of an extraordinary film. "The Alchemy of MirrorMask" takes readers inside the creative process of making "MirrorMask", a Jim Henson Company production designed and directed by McKean and written by Gaiman. It's a book that will allow the reader to visualize not only the process by which McKean created the film, but also the inspiration behind his art. The film combines animation and live action, "transferring the mysterious undercurrent and wonder of the graphic novel to the screen" ("The Hollywood Reporter"). This book includes hundreds of full-colour paintings, 3-D models, texture maps, and sketches. Also included are photos taken on the set and of places that provided inspiration for "MirrorMask." Gaiman and McKean's insightful commentary throughout sheds light on this amazing film's journey from concept to screen.
