took forever but it finally came. this is the exact frame i got, which i recognized immediately:



so how many books are actually in the first print run? i'm calculating that if each one has 12 unique frames it comes to a maximum of 100080 copies, that's taking into account some ppl getting the end credits.

i spent two hours reading the section on Eyes Wide Shut this morning. this is not a book to read chronologically, half the fun is deciding where to start, and then what next. however, the eyes wide shut section is only 14 pages! the photos are priceless but it would have been TWICE as awesome if they had scrapped the first part and given double space for the creation of each film. of course, the logic here is flawed, cos part 2 is infinitely awesome, thus making the proposed new edition 2 x Infinity. hmm.

but seriously, u get 266 pages of stills, and about the same amount on their creation and rare stuff. the most extensive treatment in part 2 is dedicated to 2001 (42 pages), while the others get an average of 20. the only good use i can see for Part 1 is to make sure whichever film i'm watching matches the colour consistency, etc. of the stills. otherwise, i suppose some are worthy of being framed.

i hope to god they make a follow up, tho i doubt it. i mean an extensive 500 page follow up on napoleon, for example, to the point that u forget where u live cos all u can think about is kubrick and napoleon.. that would be lovely.

i also noticed random tiny white specks of like paper-fluff (dust-like particles) compressed and infiltrating the boundary space of some pages. did anyone else get that? it's removable but if i clean every affected page i'll end up doing more damage than good. i'm used to bizarre things happening to packages cos of the long trip over here, but this i wished would survive unscathed  :yabbse-sad: .

on a side note, there was this taschen catalogue thrown in with the book.. it's pretty much gay porn.  :shock:

tonite i am sleeping with both.

Awesome frames!  I should be happy I didn't end up with end credits.

Yeah, I disregarded the gay porn mag and my brother found it and had questions.  No dust particles with mine that I noticed.  The first half with the prints are just so wonderful to have and look at all together though, aren't they?  I look at the Barry Lyndon section and it makes me want to go outside and shoot whatever nature setting I can find.  In fact, I was helping my uncle out with this shoot and we were photographing scenes from the Bible.  I started placing candles everywhere.

excerpt from an interview with the book's editor, Allison Castle....and here it is:

AC: Surely "Napoleon" would have been a phenomenal film if Kubrick had been able to find the backing for the project. "A.I" would also have been amazing, if Kubrick had lived long enough to make use of the effects technology we have now. In fact, any film that he might have made would have been a Kubrick film, and thus an exceptional piece of cinema. (You might say I'm biased, but this is how I feel.)

SS: Are you aware of any developments in the release of the Napoleon screenplay?

AC: The screenplay will be published in TASCHEN's upcoming book about Kubrick's "Napoleon" project, due next spring.

So far in the frame-o-meter awesomeness Picolas still wins IMO, P's frame is amazing as well, and sadly I'm at the bottom with a damn graphic, but I shouldn't complain since it was a gift, should I?

BTW, someone mentioned that the one who get the bone cut space ship would be winner, I agreed until I thought of the last frames, star child then cut to Directed by...or the same but at the beginning, now that would be uber fantastic, then would come of course the bone/space ship cut.

In the SK exhibition site they just added a virtual tour of it.

I only checked the EWS section and it wasn't good, anyway, there's the link if someone wants to check it out.

basically it's the book pages stuck on walls, with really cool lighting (sections of the shining) and real life props. as with the book, a disproportionally large section is devoted to 2001, with the rest getting second-rate treatment.

what is up with that? sure 2001 is his acknowledged masterpiece, perhaps his most accessible or most obvious one, but why comparatively snub the other movies? as if he didn't hav just as much material for each film to support equal number of pages, or m.

the exhibition will be in melbourne for the australian summer. so i might check it out. if only to tell them to correct the text on the wall of the FMJ section, "i live in a world of shit."
