Book launch – The Making of 2001: A Space Odyssey

Fifty years after its conception, Taschen have launched a limited edition book devoted to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Limited to 1,500 copies, this landmark edition has been made in exclusive collaboration with both the Kubrick Estate and Warner Bros. The 4 volume set features hundreds of previously unpublished documents and photographs.  All hardcover volumes are presented in a sleek metal slipcase inspired by the famous monolith, and come boxed with exclusive cover art from Wayne Haag.
