A SIGNED PRINT OF A DRAWING BY KEN ADAM
The collector’s box contains a print of the “The War Room” along with the book “Der Bildbau im Film”. Ken Adam signed 35 facsimiles of his final drawing for the “War Room” in Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (D: Stanley Kubrick, 1964). It is a high-quality print that results in a remarkably accurate reproduction of the original artwork on archival paper (19’1x12’4 inches) in the original seize.
Each print is numbered and signed by Ken Adam. The case binding (19’7 x 13’4 x 2 inches ) is covered with black book cloth, the title foil is stamped on the front cover and the spine. It is custom-made by a Berlin book binder. You can purchase it for 498. Euros + shipping
“Der Bildbau im Film: Metropolis, Dr. Strange-love und Troy” is a defining work on the importance of production design, for which Boris Hars-Tschachotin had the privilege of interviewing many of the film industry’s top designers including Alex McDowell, Ken Adams, Nigel Phelps and Dante Ferretti. Production designers shape the aesthetics of film, but the artistic process of creating cinematic space — especially through drawing — has been largely overlooked in film studies and art history. This is something Boris Hars-Tschachotin explores within this book. Over 300 images, a lot of them never published before, are included in this book.
