Reviews

"Much has been written about 2001: A Space Odyssey but this TASCHEN publication is the final word on Stanley Kubrick's influential masterpiece. The Making of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is a marvel, a literary piece that's as fascinating as the film it's covering and it offers readers a splendid at look one of the greatest films of the 20th century. Breathtaking."
"...one of the very best film books ever produced... In the eighteen-odd years I've been doing Books Monthly I have been privileged to read many books on some of my favourite films - in particular Star Wars and Star Trek, but also recent triumphs like Interstellar. None of them has ever had the depth and the breadth of information that Piers Bizony's work has. 2001: A Space Odyssey has stood the test of time - this book will too. A modern masterpiece of cinema history."
"...Kubrick's vision and idiosyncratic methods were too much for some of his crew (and the critics) to bear, yet the near-miraculous achievement has never been surpassed in its genre, and this book is a monument, both physically and in substance, to that end."
"...the most epic and impressively well-written offering, direct from the family archive, that any fan - or PhD researcher - could shake a light-sabre at..."
"`2001: A Space Odyssey' is the most important science fiction movie ever made. And Piers Bizony's 550-page The Making of Stanley Kubrick's `2001: A Space Odyssey', detailing the lengthy production, is a work befitting its subject. You needn't be a sci-fi junkie to appreciate this book: You merely need to love movies. The photographs may draw you in, but Mr. Bizony's writing ties it all together. He chronicles every aspect of the production, including the movie's initially disastrous critical reception, which nearly resulted in it being pulled from theaters. Finish this and you'll feel as if you've completed an advanced course in film production."
"Known for its spectacular publications on art, design and architecture, TASCHEN makes Stanley Kubrick proud, again... A precious collector's piece for both Kubrick fans and sci-fi enthusiasts."
