Format: Hardcover
Length: 0:52 Mins
I am a huge fan of Nolan's Batman films because they bring a sense of realism to the Batman mythology. This book is great because it allows you to take a closer look at all of the technology and gadgets within the films. The book provides plenty of photos and diagrams, along with informative text, that gives you a new appreciation for the amount of design that went into these movies.

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.

Like so many others out there, I am extremely hyped for the final chapter of Nolan's Batman saga. To help bide my time until the film's July 20th release, I decided to check Amazon to see what was out there. The Dark Knight Manual, seemed interesting enough... and really the only book out there. I decided to take a flyer on it. Two days later, (thanks Amazon Prime!) and boy am I glad I did.

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.

this book's written from bruce/batman's perspective.

there is so much in this book it isnt even funny, joker's playing cards, pull out blueprints for 'the bat' and even a little booklet regarding the pneumatic grapple gun. the amount of inserts actually has the cover bowing a bit, not a bad thing in this case considering all the content, including things I'd never even noticed despite owning all 3 movies.

slight cavet though, some of the inserts are glued in in such a manner as to make looking at the pages they're attached over a tad awkward, aside from that, no real issue.

if you're looking for hidden nuggets(such as the page of gotham services stickers, yes those ARE stickers) or things you've missed that ARE in the movie, then this book is for you. if you're expecting behind the scenes comments and production notes? there are other books out there that cover that.

very much well worth the price paid.

Like a pop up book for your full grown geek. My boyfriend absolutely loved his birthday gift. It comes super packaged so nothing is missing.... had a disc in it, though I'm not sure if it was a cd, dvd, or dvd rom... It's full of decals, cards, photos, and mock up maps and case files... incredible. He loved it, I loved it, money well spent! (And nerdy girlfriend points when bought as a gift too!)

If you are a big fan of the Dark Knight movie series, this books is for you. Also, purchasing this book through Amazon is THE best way to go. I was at a
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.

Purchased this along with the Iron Man manual, and they both make pretty neat coffee table books to flip through. If you're going to pick up just one of the pair, though, stick to Iron Man. They both have bunch of little inserts, mock sticky notes, dossiers, etc, glued in to the pages that add a neat little touch, and I have no real problem with the maps and schematics in the Dark Knight book, but the presentation of the dossiers is poorly executed and the stickers (which, seriously, we can do without) have the nasty side-effect of pulling ink off of the affronting page! Nix the stickers, and centrally locate all of the dossiers, maps, and schematics in a paper envelope in the back (making sure to not glue them together this time), and this book would be an easy 5 stars.
