“This is a truly behind- and in-the-scenes look at a film that has maintained a pull on audiences for decades. With sketches, interviews with cast and crew and thorough research, Block and Erdmann explore the genesis of the film, its script, its puppets, the ins and outs of its filming, and the ups and downs of its reception. It's at once dazzling and engrossing.”

The cover is hard back with some embossed details .
But are some things like replicas of Jim Henson's notes and letters, that are glued and tucked in kinda scrapbook like. So this isn't something to be handled by small kids. I'm actually considering getting some plastic to cover the book. Maybe even a comic book storage bag for the extras.
The cover design matches very well with the 30th Anniversary editions of the DVD and Blu Ray disks as well as the soundtrack cd.
The contents are so richly detailed and easy to understand . I can tell a lot of love and hard work went into the research. Some of the pics and cast/crew interviews were taken from other sources like the" Making of..." documentary from the dvd/blu ray disks. But that's OK since some of the cast and crew are no longer with us. (RIP Jim Henson and David Bowie ) That's the only way their "voices/words" could be included with the rest .
The print quality . The text is easy to read. I haven't noticed any spelling or grammar errors . The font that was used in the chapter titles is very pretty and it fits in well the look and feel of Labyrinth .All of the photos look fantastic ! You can see almost every detail in the costumes and sets. The colors of Brian Fraud ' s art are crisp and vibrant !
Conclusion ! If you are a Jim Henson fan, get this book !
If you are a film buff ,get this book!
If you are a history buff, get this book!
If you love art and photography , get this book !
If you are a Brian Fraud fan, get this book !
If you are a David Bowie fan, get this book!
Also fantastic actor background as well as history and background of the Henson family and all of the wonderful puppets he created throughout his career.
Great book at a very decent price
