it's real.. they're calling it "The Best Book Ever Made of the Best Movie Never Made"





http://www.taschen.com/pages/en/catalogue/film/all/03844/facts.stanley_kubricks_napoleon_the_greatest_movie_never_made.htm

UKú 450.00 = 735.03 U.S. dollars

what a gyp. be a chump if you want but i wouldn't buy this if i was half that price, or even the same price as the orginal SKA.

it's basically hollowed-out book with a bunch of neat little picture booklets inside. pictures are fucking useless if they are like the example in the third pic, what use is that? even tiny scans of kubrick's chicken scratch have limited value at the resolution you get in these things. the SKA was 50% useless because of pictures. and the offer of exclusive access to 17000 MORE pictures online is even greater reason not to buy it. all it takes is one mad cunt to leak the password or whatever and you've saved yourself a GRAND (*AUS dollars).

wait for the xmas sale when it's $50.00 or better yet just do a google image search in a couple years.

now im glad I didn't post this yesterday. your absence was like a knife in fernando's heart (hedwig's too im sure)  :yabbse-grin:


anyway, ill blame flagpole for the price. as much as id love to have it it's waaaay too expansive, I too wouldn't pay even half, maybe less than 200 and that's still pricey, and what's the point of making only 1000 copies? so yeah, ill wait til it drops to 50 bucks.

pictures are fucking useless if they are like the example in the third pic, what use is that?

couldn't agree more, and I'd like to think that ppl even wondering to buy this have seen the boxes doc, so it really is useless to have a pic of a damn file cabinet.

thanks for the comparison.

i think i'll wait and hope for a cheaper Napoleon because i hate my frames and i don't think i've even listen to the CD - maybe i need to do that. the book is so cumbersome that it's very hard to store. i have no empty bookshelf for it so i keep it in the box it was shipped in to prevent dust and move it from place to place not wanting to stack anything on top of it.

i am also going to stanley kubrick's house on dec 8th as one of 100 invited guests. Jan Harlan will be there, i expect christiane will be there too.

document it if they let you - and find me one of Kubrick's favorite shirts.
