The book covers the following topics: Batman's suit, the Tumbler and Batpod, "The Bat" flying vehicle, the Bat Cave, and Wayne Manor. There are also case files for The Joker and Dr. Crane, hospital records for Harvey Dent, many prototype designs from Wayne's applied sciences division, hand-written memos to Bruce Wayne from Alfred & Lucius Fox, Gotham Police decals, etc.
One of the unique aspects is that this book, much like the Harry Potter Film Wizardry, features inserts that can be removed from the book. Flipping through the book, it almost feels like you went to Gotham City and brought home a bunch of cool artifacts!
LIST OF REMOVABLE INSERTS:
- The Cave blueprints
- Bat Signal Stickers/Decals
- The Bat (flying vehicle) blueprints
- Gotham Police Dept. stickers
- Harvey Dent campaign stickers
- 8 Joker cards
- Map of Gotham City
- There is also a hidden disc behind the folder on the last page -- the disc includes 14 high-res images.
**Note that there are many other inserts included, but they are not designed to be removed from the book.
Overall, I can't say enough good things about this book. Batman fans will be satisfied, and it gives you a greater appreciation for the world that Nolan and his design team have created. If there is one criticism it's that the book is a bit light on "The Dark Knight Rises" material, although characters like Bane and Selina Kyle do get their own pages.
I spent a good 2-3 hours just going through this book, page by page, artifact by artifact. You can really sense that this book was a labor of love by the people who made it. Never will you come as close to being an inhabitant of Gotham City as you are while reading this book. The book may seem small at 112 pages but there is so much detail that bleeds off every single page, with lots of cool easter eggs littered throughout.
My only negatives are that I wish the book had a few more profiles of key characters in the trilogy. And that some of the individual photos used are a little dark.
All in all, a really great book for the Nolan fan. It's definitely a coffee table book that will leave your guests with a smile on their face and one that you'll find yourself coming back time and time again.
well known and popular bookstore (not saying who), this book was about fifteen dollars more. It has allot little papers and fold outs. I highly recommend this collectable.
