By Edited by Craig Oldham
Rough Trade Books
Designer: Office of Craig
Director: Stanley Kubrick
The lure and legacy of Kubrick’s classic horror The Shining shows no sign of waning. In fact it continues to gain momentum by the year as evidenced by projects like the book The Shining: A Visual and Cultural Haunting, an immersive, multi-dimensional examination of one of the most famous films in cinematic history.
Conceived and delivered by designer and writer Craig Oldham and published by Rough Trade Books, this beautifully boxed publication is disguised as the ‘writing project’ Jack is typing throughout the course of the film. We at F&F funded this book on Kickstarter and it’s now available for general purchase from the links below.
The 400 page, loose-leafed ‘book’ explores the film’s cultural impact through essays, original recollections, contributions from cultural luminaries, and art and visual ephemera. Rare, exclusive interviews with lead actors Shelley Duvall (Wendy Torrance) and Dan Lloyd (Danny Torrance), along with contributions from Cosey Fanni Tutti, Margaret Howell (whose iconic maroon jacket was worn by Jack in the closing act of the film) James Lavelle (UNKLE) and Gavin Turk re-examine the film through the lenses of music, art, mythology, fashion and gender.
