Format: Hardcover
A truly magnificent book. Beautiful photography throughout and a great collection of interviews and articles taken from various sources which perfectly compliment the photos.

If you're a huge fan of the film, you may have read some of these peices before but the fact that they're collected in one place and accompanied by such lavish pictures means that you will not be disappointed.

Taschen publishing house have done it again! Like the other fabulous tome on Kubrick they put out, "The Stanley Kubrick Archives", this gorgeous book continues their tradition of extreme good taste conception-wise, excellent overall design of the contents, the finest printing quality available and a knack for picking an extraordinary subject.
Thank God Steve Schapiro is still around and for granting full access to his photographic archives pertaining to the production of the iconic "The Godfather" trilogy! There are a few photos that have previously graced the pages of magazines and some other books, yet the majority of the lot included here is indeed rare. The photos are gorgeous, with many being printed in full pages and several others spread across two pages - an absolute must!! They're complemented by insightful excerpts of diaries and interviews of a lot of the people involved in the making of the films, from Mario Puzo, to producer Al Ruddy, to Al Pacino and, most profusely, Francis Ford Coppola.
While "The Godfather" Parts I and II are extensively illustrated - mainly Part I -, "The Godfather: Part III" is the least covered. That was the only minus I found in the entire volume. There is only a minor magazine report on its production and a run of the mill interview of Coppola during filming, plus far less photographs when compared to the ones from the previous two films. That's an unfortunate trend set regarding Part III, which is to be vastly underrated when compared to two immensely lauded and prestigious cinema masterpieces that Parts I and II admitedly are. My personal favourite is "The Godfather: Part I", for all the rich portrayal of characters and relationships, a dynamic story of epic proportions, with superb acting, photography and direction amongst many other things.

I love this book so much, the value via Amazon is amazing and the content of this book, if you are a Godfather fan, is insightful, interesting and informative. The photos and background information are brilliant and I thoroughly recommend it to any fan of this film. This book is very underrated and should have been promoted far more than it was/is.

I am a huge fan of the Godfather films and a huge fan of Taschen books -put the two together and surely you cannot go wrong?
The answer is -you sure can't for this is a fantastic publication with lots of photos, articles and behind the scenes material for all the films.
The information is solid, the phtographs insightful and new ( lots of them I have not seen before) and the book is HUGE.
One of my favourite movie books of all time.

Beautiful photos with quotes from the films. There are also photos of deleted scenes and behind-the-scene photos, which give an insight into the filming process. This is a a brilliant book and is a must-have item for any Godfather fans.

I haven't opened it up yet, it's a present for someone, but it's heavy and sturdy behind a protective film covering it.
I imagine it's the perfect gift for a true fan!
