This review is from: THE WORLD OF THE NEVERENDING STORY. (Hardcover)
I borrowed this book from the library back in 1985, when I was pretty young, and for years I couldn't remember the name of it. Since the internet came about I started looking for it; for years there was no trace of it. Then, finally, in recent years, copies started to surface and last Christmas I managed to get hold of a nice copy. Now, that's a hell of a long time to be looking for a book, and while I can be a bit obsessive, trust me this book is that good.
You'll find very many concept designs for The NeverEnding Story, full colour reproductions of production paintings by Ul de Rico and copious notes about pre-production, designs that had to be scrapped for various reasons. It's just a beautiful, immersive insight into one of the best fantasy movies ever made.
