Taschen The Stanley Kubrick Archives
From the opening sequence of Killer’s Kiss to the final frames of Eyes Wide Shut, this dazzling collection includes some of Kubrick’s most unforgettable shots and revealing interviews, as well as abundant material from his own archives, such as set designs, screenplays, notes, correspondence, and shooting schedules.
In 1968, when Stanley Kubrick was asked to comment on the metaphysical significance of 2001: A Space Odyssey, he replied: “It’s not a message I ever intended to convey in words. 2001 is a nonverbal experience… I tried to create a visual experience, one that directly penetrates the subconscious with an emotional and philosophic content.”
Taschen's The Stanley Kubrick Archives uncovers Kubrick’s creative process through fascinating archival material, including set designs, sketches, correspondence, documents, screenplays, drafts, notes, and shooting schedules.
Accompanying the visual and archival material are essays by noted Kubrick scholars, articles written by and about Kubrick, and a selection of Kubrick’s best interviews. The result is a visual, archival, and scholarly journey through masterworks of 20th-century cinema and the meticulous mind of the director behind them.
